    Good English is important so that you don't say things like, "You are a very impotent man!"

    NOT A TEACHER


    (1) Some people feel that it is important to learn English because:

    (a) It is currently the international language.

    (b) It is the language used in what some people feel is currently the

    most important country in the world.

    (c) It is the language of the Internet.

    (d) It is the language of arguably the most popular motion pictures

    and television shows (including excellent productions from the United

    Kingdom).

    (e) It is the language that you currently need to advance in the

    business world.

    (f) It is -- in the opinion of many people -- the most flexible of

    languages when it comes to grammar, vocabulary, slang, etc.

    (g) It is, in short, a marvelous instrument for communication among

    human beings -- in the opinion of many people.

    (i) Some people praise it because:

    (a) It is "vigorous sounding." (With total respect, some people judge


    some other languages as being too "weak" or "sentimental" or "ambiguous.")

    (b) "Real" English words are short and to the point.

    (c) It can "borrow" words from other languages very easily.

    (d) Its word order (subject - verb - object) is -- in the opinion of

    many people -- the most "natural" way to speak.

    (2) Of course, many people believe that their language is equally

    important and maybe even more important than English. Each person

    must make up his/her/their own mind. (I understand that some

    students in certain countries are not studying English. They are

    studying a "certain" language that some people feel is destined for

    importance in the business world.)

    (3) The importance of English to you personally perhaps

    depends on where you live and on what your career plans are.
