Speaking only your first language is not enough anymore nowadays. Since there are around 1.5 billion people speaking English, we cannot deny that English influences our living enormously. We speak English to communicate with foreigners to gain new information or experiences, and you can even make money from it. It can widen your opportunities in life and enhance your brain’s ability.
In this article, we are going to explain the reasons why learning English is important, and why you should take an English course, whether it is for your GED class, IGCSE/ A-level papers, or IELTS exam.
- Have an opportunity to be enrolled in an international college
As we already know, many of the world’s best universities are located in the US, UK, and countries that use English as their first language. They provide the best educational systems that you could dream for. You can apply to an international college as well, such as in Thailand, we have Chulalongkorn, Thammasat, MUIC, etc., these universities also use a high quality educational system as universities from the first world countries. Of course, when you graduate from these high-end colleges, any companies will surely want to hire you and you are going to live your best life ever.
Therefore, if you plan to study in any first world country or in an international college in your own country, English proficiency is required.
- Enhance your communication skill
When you learn English or any foreign language, you tend to think more rationally, and more systematically. According to the University of Chicago, speaking another language apart from your own makes you feel removed from a phenomenon, so that you can be more precise and clear of what you are saying. (You can see as well in this article 9 Interesting psychological facts that students need to know (A-Level subjects.)) When you study English at GED, IGCSE/ A-level, SAT, or IELTS class, you will certainly learn about how to speak English in front of people, and that means you learn how to communicate both in daily life and in professional ways.
- Improve your confidence, and be FABULOUS
As we mentioned before, there are around 1.5 billion people using English which also means that if you can speak English, you can go almost anywhere in the world. This can build your confidence since you know that you can communicate with someone who has a different kind of culture and background from you. Furthermore, English can somehow make you feel proud of yourself. Being someone who can communicate fluently in English at school, college, or at work makes you feel self-confident and definitely improves your personality.
- Widen employment opportunities
In Thailand, or countries where English is not their first language, people that are bilingual or speaking more than one language can expect a higher salary, over 20% compared to those who are not. According to the Bureau of Labour Statistics, the demand for bilingual employees is still more than monolingual and expected to be constantly higher. For that reason, the Ministry of Education of any country is encouraging their people to learn a second or third language, especially English.
- Explore the world more widely than people who are not using English
Sometimes, talking with people with the same background as you could not really open your mind widely, because they are likely to have the same perspective and thoughts as you. So, if you can communicate in English, you will gain more points of view from different people with different cultures, and acquire new ideas for your better visions. The more you know the wiser you become.
