If you’re thinking about learning a language and don’t already speak English fluently, you’ll probably hear people say that English is the most important language to learn. But why exactly should you believe them?
We’re here to tell you just that.
Here are the 6 most important reasons to learn English
1. Widely spoken
When considering why learning English is important, this is perhaps the biggest factor you should consider. One in five people in the world (the whole world!) can speak, or at least understand, English. It’s a very handy language for travel and communication.
2. Career booster
As the primary language of business, it is important – no, imperative – to know how to speak English when talking to international colleagues or customers. Having English language skills increases your chances of getting a good job, whether in a multinational company or working abroad.
3. Not that hard (no, really!)
While the vocabulary and pronunciation can be a bit difficult to learn, English grammar is easier compared to other European languages. There are only two genders, one definite and indefinite article, and cases don't really matter at all...
