Learning Foreign Languages
Learning foreign languages is of vital importance in everyday
life. Do you agree? Why do people learn foreign languages?
I definitely do, foreign languages are of paramount importance
for everyday life. Learning at least one foreign language is a must
in most countries of the world. There are several ways how I can
prove this. Firstly, speaking a foreign language aids communication
and global understanding. The world is no longer a combination of
separate countries, it's rather a complex of interrelated parts,
connected economically and sometimes politically. In international
communication, foreign languages are necessary for international
commerce as well as for different types of cultural exchange such as
diplomacy, arts and so on. Owners and top executives of most
companies think their businesses could benefit from better language
skills. Therefore, knowing a foreign language gives more
opportunities of finding a better-paid and rewarding job.
Secondly, learning a foreign language is educational as it helps
develop the human brain. In 2004, a study by University College
London examined the brains of 105 people who could speak more than
one language. The study found that people who learned a second
language when younger had denser grey matter (where information is
processed) than those who learned one later. Most schools around the
world teach at least one foreign language. In 1995 the European
Commission's White Paper on Education and Training emphasized the
importance of schoolchildren learning at least two foreign languages
before upper secondary education.
English is the language of international communication and
the most spoken language in the world. Do you agree?
I couldn't agree more, and there are several reasons why I think
so. First, there have long been a need for an international language
— a language of international communication. At present, the
language of international communication, a 'global language' is
English. In addition, the language has occupied a primary place in
international science and business. Through the global influence of
native English speakers in cinema, airlines, broadcasting, science,
and the Internet in recent decades, English is now the most widely
learned second language in the world. Many students worldwide are
required to learn at least some English, and a working knowledge of
English is required in many fields and occupations. The current
status of the English language compares with that of Latin in the
Second, English is the dominant language in the United Kingdom,
the United States, many Commonwealth nations, and other former
British colonies. In many other countries, where English is not a
major first language, it is an official language. It is now the
third most spoken native language worldwide (after Chinese and
Hindi), with some 380 million speakers. An equal number of people
use it as their second or foreign language.
