Why is English always needed?
- English benefits life
Language in general, and English in particular, are the means for people to communicate with each other in every aspect of life. According to Education First, up to now, there are nearly 2 billion English speakers worldwide. More than 360 million people are English native speakers. It is estimated that half of the world will engage in verbal communication in English by 2050. Therefore, knowing English is a great advantage for anyone later.
- English is never “outdated”
Although English is only ranked third in the list of most used languages in the world, it is used in more countries so, the influence has never decreased. Over time, the profession may change, but graduating from the English major will always have the chance to prove yourselves in today’s tough global labor market.
- English also gives you many job opportunities
In addition to English teaching as many others think, English learners also have countless career options, such as: copywriters at advertising agencies, corporate media specialists, journalists write articles, editors for magazines, content creators, translators, bloggers, freelancers and start-ups (English start-ups) … It can be said students graduating from English can never be jobless if they know how to utilize their language skills for specific jobs. It is clear that English Language graduates are always offered attractive salaries at foreign-invested companies and foreign businesses in Vietnam. Being trained as “global citizens”, they can live and work everywhere in the world. In addition, according to experts, English language is a popular field of study because the Vietnamese labor market always needs a lot of employees who are good at foreign languages, strong socio-cultural knowledge and good at working skills.
- English is not as easy as you think!
One of the reasons English language is often underestimated is because the curriculum is … so easy. However, that is a wrong thought! In fact, the English is easy only for people who do not really appreciate and value this field. There is a fact that that even native people in English-speaking countries still choose the English Language to study. this is definitely not as simple as you think.
Learning English for communication purpose can be easy for some people but, learning how to use it to make money is not easy at all. Take a simple example, although English is so common, each local will have different usage and way of speaking English. What you learn in school is just the way of speaking English of a certain place, mainly the US or UK. Therefore, are you confident that you will understand English of Indians, Singaporeans, Malaysians and many other countries? One more example, writing an for an exam is not difficult, but are you sure you will be able to complete a few dozen pages of a report for a foreign company with academic vocabulary? English is harder than you think.
