English is the new passport for success
Posted on August 14, 2018
Time and youth wait for no one. So then, do you want to be successful eventually or immediately? In today’s fast-moving competitive world you need to find a quick route to success. English is that route. Among about 6500 languages spoken around the world today, English is the King of languages. And it seems very unlikely that it would ever be dethroned anytime soon. Rather it’s a language that is evolving. It is one language that is absorbing other languages and expanding its horizons. Just as an example, the Indian expression, “veranda” was assimilated many decades ago and it did not stop there. More recently, the expression for grief “aiyo” was also assimilated. Therefore, investing time in learning English will give you rich dividends because it’s a language that is going to stay!
English enhances your chances to obtain your dream ‘Overseas Job’
English has become a global language. From Art to Air Traffic Control, from Pottery to Rocket Science English is the communication language. There are several job opportunities open for those who can Read, Write and Speak English. Mastering this one language can open up opportunities not just in your own country but also in other more affluent nations too.
True, English is not a native tongue for many countries, but most of these countries use English as their second language. Besides, English is the language of the internet. Most of the digital data is stored in English. So learning English would help a person not only to find a good job but will also help in being progressive and successful.
United Kingdom’s immigration rules require that one goes through the IELTS (International English Language Testing System) test with a particular score. Canadian immigration laws require either IELTS or CELPIP (Canadian English language Proficiency Index Program). Therefore knowing English is imperative to success.
Helps you to face challenges upfront rather than losing opportunities
Imagine a person with little English knowledge who goes for an immigration interview and the interviewer asks him to “tell me something about you.” Picture in your mind the interviewer’s reaction as the candidate says, “Well, my shelf is made of wood, and I keep all my clothes in it.” What are his chances of immigration?
Or perhaps the girl of your dreams walks up to you as she is searching for her father and asks you, “Did you see my dad?” You, having seen him pass by you, say, “Yes he just passed away.” Would you be able to make friends?
English has become a language of communication. It saves us many embarrassing situations. You would find it difficult to socialize if you are the only one in the office who does not understand or speak English. Learning English helps you face day to day challenges and carry yourself with dignity and have fun with friends.
English will come to your rescue in odds
Whichever country you choose to immigrate to, English will come to your rescue. From traffic signal posts to labels on food, all are written in English, or the local language as well as English. The ability to read and understand English will definitely help you avoid minor and major mistakes.
Yes, English is incredibly important in developing a career in any field such as Arts, Science or Technology or develop International Business. English language skills will help you make and maintain friends all over the world. English will be your best friend not just as you immigrate but also as you handle your daily tasks.
