WHY DO WE NEED TO LEARN ENGLISH?
HOW DO WE LEARN ENGLISH?
As you know, nowadays English is spoken as a second language in many parts over the world and it can be considered as an international language. English is also taken in education system and is one of official subjects at school. So, at first we must answer an important question is…”why do we learn English?” And “what do we learn English for?”. Of course, one of the reasons why we need to learn English is because the world is becoming smaller and smaller, more and more people are using English as a common way to communicate to each other. So now many companies, enterprises, large businesses when employing workers, staff, clerks… they usually favor people who can speak English.
For me, I am still a student, I think learning English is very important, that’s why I like learning English and I love English since it such an interesting language. Besides, I also want to have a good job in my future, especially become a translator which has been my dream since I was six or seven years old, and learning English will help me do that dream.
Learning anything is difficult and English is no exception. Learning English takes time and patience. It can not be rushed. Try to relax and take it easy. The most important thing we need to have is a good vocabulary, without words, we won’t be able to do anything. We must start with a strong foundation and build slowly day by day. Daily practice is very important. Don’t worry about making mistakes…in fact the more mistakes we make, the more we will learn from them. Let me give an example, if you learn to ride a bike and you fall off, what will you do? Of course, you will get back on and try again. Just as we say in English: “No pain…No gain”. Moreover, practice and confidence are also important words to remember when learning English. Practice English everyday and be confident, you will find that the more you use English, the better your English will become, and the more confident you become, the more you will want to use it.
In short, when living in a country which is becoming more and more developing and modern, we need to know about English, have to know to speak English. In order to do that, from now, we have to learn English – an our second language.
