    Re: English Language

    Hello and welcome!

    How important is English? It depends on your lifestyle, your career, and your outlook. If you live in a non-English speaking country and your job doesn't require you to be bi-lingual, and you never plan to travel to an English-speaking nation, then the language is not very important. Some people find it interesting or enriching to expand their horizons by learning a second language, in which case English is a good choice, since it is considered to be the international tongue of business and science. Pilots and air traffic controllers are required to speak English because it is the primary language used in aviation.

    In the end, it's all a matter of personal choice and opinion as to how important (or unimportant) the English language is to you.
