The Reasons Why You Should Learn English: 

Learning to speak English well may be the best thing you can do to improve your life.

Here are some examples of knowledge you can use if you know English:

  •  Most pages on the Web. That's over a billion (1,000,000,000) pages of information! It's amazing that learning just one language gives you access to almost all knowledge on the Internet.

  • Books on any subject, from all over the world. Read books by British or American authors, and books translated from other languages. Whatever you're interested in, you can read about it in English! Every famous book was written in English or it was translated into English. There is an amazing number of titles, from classic plays like Hamlet to modern thrillers like Jurassic Park.

  •  The press. Only English-language magazines and newspapers can be bought in every part of the world. You don't have to search for Time, Newsweek, or the International Herald Tribune!

  •  Science. English is the key to the world of science. In 1997, 95% of the articles in the Science Citation Index were written in English. Only about 50% of them were from English-speaking countries like the USA or Britain.

  •  News reports. Watch international television networks, such as CNN International and NBC. They broadcast news much faster, and more professionally, than smaller, national networks. And you can watch them everywhere in the world.
