“Do you speak English?” “Do you know English?” Where you from are? Can you say that in English? The questions like these are often asked by people…..Yes, these may make you feel bad or sad but you may have to face these questions. You may answer nodding your head in awkwardness, using incorrect English or you may have to seal your lips. You will lose your power of speech, lose your voice. Go speechless, go dumb too.
There has always been great emphasis on English as it is the language that is used by millions and millions of people across the globe. If you are the one who doesn’t know English then it is necessary that you should start learning it as without this language you may not have the chance to be successful in your life – personal and professional.
It is the passport for Higher Education
English for students is must. If the students who desire of studying in a foreign country where English is the official language then they will have to prove that they know the language. They may have to take one of the International English Language Tests such as TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language), IELTS (International English Language Testing System), PTE (Pearson Test of English) etc. There are many other tests which students take in order to prove that they are good at English.
English for Medical Professional
You may not know but there are many countries where medical professionals (who are from a non-English speaking country) need to take one of the English tests to prove that they are competent enough to work or practice in an English-speaking country. For instance, OET ( Occupational English Test ) is one of the tests which is taken by the doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, dentists etc who wish to practice in Australia, New Zealand etc.
English influencing the Tourism Sector
“Where are you from?” “Which country are you from?” Tourists may face these questions and many other similar questions at the airport itself when they visit any country in the world. In fact, when you travel from one city to another within the same country you may come across people asking you similar types of questions. English for tourists is must because with this language they can get the freedom to fly over to any country they want to. No matter to which part of the world you go to, with English, you can communicate your thoughts more easily. If you are in Germany and you don’t speak German then it doesn’t really matter because Germans will speak your language that is English.
For Great Career Opportunities
Often, candidates who are brilliant at studies do not find the job as they may expect. The sole reason of it can be attributed to their poor English. Today, we find organisations which insist upon recruiting the candidates who are good at English and if you are the one who is not good at it then you may not have the chance to get selected for the job. It is possible that you may get weeded out in the first round of the interview itself. It should also be said that employees with good command over the language are always given preference and are promoted to higher levels in the organisations.
Therefore, learning and improving English is very much necessary as this can bring a lot of advantages. It has the power to help you find better education opportunities, better career opportunities and can help you in almost all aspects of life. Only by learning and improving English, you can go on to achieve in your life enviable success.
