Looking for a job? A raise at your job? Advancements in your career opportunities? One simple answer to all of these questions —
A good command over English.
It’s very often that we fail to realise this but we are, as a matter of fact, surrounded by English, every second of the day, in a hundred different forms. Need to study for an exam? The resource materials that are the easiest to find on the internet are in English. Getting bored and want to use your phone for a while? Statistically, more than half of all content on all social media platforms are in English.
English, in the past decade, has become so common in our day-to-day lives that it’s almost impossible to survive without knowing English, in some degrees at the least. However the human race has never been content with the bare minimum, has it? We’re always looking for, and want more and more of everything. It is therefore, only natural to be interested in mastering English as a language, and wanting to learn English beyond the bare minimum of “Please”, “Thank you” and “Excuse me.”
However, if you’re still having a hard time trying to decide if you should, in fact, invest your time and energy into learning this language, let us help you understand why you absolutely need to!
● Medium of International Communication
We often come across the phrase — “English is a Global Language” — but what does it actually mean? Put simply, it just means that English is the most widely spoken and understood Language all over the world. It is the official language of 53 countries and is spoken by around 400 million people across the globe.
So, if you wish to speak to people from any of these countries, and are not accustomed with their mother tongues, having a good understanding of English can prove to be your most effective tool of communication!
● Dominates the Internet
The World Wide Web opens the whole wide world to you if you know how to do a simple search on the Internet. However, to reiterate the point mentioned above, more than half of the content on the Internet, including the social media, is in English. Thus, the better your hold of the English Language is, the easier it is for you to broaden your intellectual horizon through the Internet.
Good knowledge of English will allow you to access films, music and literature from hundreds of countries around the globe.

So if you are, by any means, a pop culture enthusiast and/or someone who wants to stay in touch with the current trends across the world .
Feels like they’ve missed out on a particular show or movie that the social media is filled of references with, all you need to do is learn English, turn on the subtitles — and you’re done!
