English is a very big language. It’s a language that’s spoken all across the world, and is taught in most countries as a second language. Its influence is seen practically everywhere, as a worldwide lingua franca that helps the world to communicate. Not everyone speaks English of course, and many have rudimentary English skills but lack fluency.
Here are three big reasons why brushing up on your general English skills is a good idea:
Because English is so widely spoken it is frequently used as a lingua franca. A lingua franca is essentially a common language, which two parties can resort two when communication becomes tricky. If you travel around the world, rather than learning each language specific to each destination, a good knowledge of English can get you very far.
Many international employers will look for English speakers. Whatever the industry or sector there is always demand for English speakers, especially across national boundaries. Not only in the UK, but all around the world the English language is looked upon very favorably by recruiters and employers.
Learning English is a challenge. People who are multi-lingual, including English, often report that learning English was most challenging of all. There are many reasons why this might be the case, however it is generally the irregular spelling of words that catches people out.
Learning English might be relatively difficult at first, but with quality teaching it’s more than possible to learn English in London, whether from scratch or just to brush-up your pre-existing skills.
