While being a student you find many people that ask you “Why vày you like English?” However, I think the answer to this question only gets complicated when you ask yourself, “Why do I lượt thích English?” As an advanced student I guess I should have figured it out much earlier but considering I’m seventeen it (kind of) makes sense that I haven’t yet.
I took up English because my parents thought I would need it at some point in my life. They were aware of the importance of knowing another language khổng lồ not only broaden your mind but also push your limits. However difficult the start was I instantly felt comfortable. The atmosphere was wonderful, và by atmosphere I mean the warmth of teachers who – I bet – knew how difficult it can be for a little child lớn start something new. They made English look lượt thích an easy trò chơi to play since, as we all know, if you enjoy what you vị you give your best.
English also has opened my mind lớn new perspectives because by reading books or listening to lớn music I realize distances are nothing, we’re all part of the world which turns out to lớn be pretty small as we can feel something similar no matter where we are. For me, English is that bridge that can lead you khổng lồ see that there are a lot of people who have felt or are feeling in the same way you feel.
Further khổng lồ the points I highlighted before, English is considered to lớn be the lingua franca (language people use lớn communicate when they have different first languages) and companies which are trying khổng lồ make it to worldwide success are looking for people that have English among their various skills since it’s a great way to lớn enter other markets.

Nowadays, English doesn"t belong to one place, it’s everybody’s world language. And I think it would be great if it were taught to children as they’re little because it’s the best time to learn as it’s easy.

Having English as a lingua franca doesn’t mean we have lớn have an English lifestyle as well. This is the best of it, we can have a mixture... Making our culture evolve in a different way, acquiring new things but preserving out essence. It’s all about opening our minds và trying to see that others are not that different & that we can get khổng lồ know them better if we share a common language.
As I grow up (Yes! I’m still at it!) I discover that it’s not always easy khổng lồ keep on working on my English as I have less time to study but in a way this has helped me realize there are fantastic ways to learn, improve & use your English.
Watching series or films online: the internet can be something more than just a way khổng lồ gossip or keep up with Hollywood trends, it can also be a place lớn catch up with your favourite series or movie. At times it’s hard lớn understand the dialogues so I suggest starting with series you are familiar with, và it’s great when you showroom the subtitles so that you know exactly what they’re saying. Miễn phí online films và series are available online & you don’t need to lớn be registered. (Gordon"s Note:I agree with this idea & I know there are some free films online but also remember that iTunes is a great và legal way to bởi this get movies và TV shows.)
Music: I think this is my favourite way of learning English. There’s nothing better than listening to a good album with meaningful lyrics.
To sum up, I would say English has a very important place in my life. Indeed, I can’t imagine my life without it & I think the world helps that. I like having it in my life since I have developed a kind of love for English because it has made me discover a whole new world that has always been there but I didn’t have the key to enter. This tool also leads me to lớn independence & sharing my knowledge, feelings và ideas with people from all over the world. When I went to lớn London this July, English also helped me to make friends with people who were foreigners just like me, who were also still unsure & adjusting in a different country & we ended up creating a bond which I hope will continue to lớn grow day by day.
During my life I’ve encountered people who encourage me every day lớn go on in this way, learning around the things I enjoy is certainly the easiest way to progress. On the other hand, I also find people who try to bring me down, saying that no matter how hard I try it is pointless khổng lồ try to acquire another culture that’s not mine. However, as with many things in life, it is important to follow the way you think will make you happy, because none of the people who discouraged you will come lớn repair the damage of having made a bad choice.

People that think English is boring, unnecessary or just a waste of time is because they don’t know, they have no idea of the vast world that hides beyond their ignorance.
