English is the most widely-used language in the world, in all aspects of communication whether spoken or written. For work, pleasure or study, the need to actively communicate in English is growing constantly and is based on increasing global connectivity and people’s desire to improve their life opportunities. Moreover, it is essential for education and all kinds of jobs whether government or private.
Nowadays, there are very few universities and colleges in the world where English is not the only language used for scientific research. Another reason that emphasizes its importance is the fact that it is very difficult for someone to apply to study abroad without the knowledge of English.
Needless to mention is that many employees nowadays are expected to demonstrate competence in English language and strong computer skills. The same goes for the use of internet in Education. Search engines and social media can prove to be the best places to gain information and updates about career and study programmes; to use them one must have at least basic knowledge of English, since 50 % of internet content is written in English.
Therefore, good command of English language is very important for both career and education, as well as for communication in today’s globalized social and working environments. It is not just the question of staying competitive, but also of remaining relevant.
