Importance of Studying English

We all know that most parts of the world are already familiar with the English language. In fact, it鈥檚 a language that is used for every aspect of society - may it be tourism, economics, politics, etc. 

But even though it鈥檚 considered to be the universal language, it鈥檚 not always the first language that people learn. For non-native English speakers, this language is often taught in school and eventually becomes the second language. 

Because it鈥檚 being widely used all over the world, it鈥檚 become a necessary language to learn given that it鈥檚 also the language of business. When working with international clients, regardless of which country the respective parties are from, English will most likely be the language that will be used. 

Benefits of Learning English

When you鈥檙e learning something new, there are always benefits that come with it. No matter how good or bad you think you are, the process of learning will always help you become better at it and a better person, in general. 

As for learning English, there are tons of benefits that come with learning a new language - much more that it鈥檚 the universal language. 

Job Applications

In the previous section, it was mentioned that English was the language of business. There, studying English becomes important because it鈥檚 one of the many things that will be checked when applying for a job - you need to be able to communicate well with other people should the need arise. 

It鈥檚 definitely an advantage if you know how to write and speak English when you鈥檙e doing reports and proposals. If you want to apply for a multinational company, this is definitely a skill they鈥檙e going to need.


In another aspect, it鈥檚 the language that will get you around. If you want to travel the world, it鈥檚 best to learn this language because you can expect that even though you can鈥檛 speak that country鈥檚 language, they have higher chances of understanding English. 

No matter what country it is, you can expect that a few words will help you get from point A to point B. Chances are, knowing how to speak in English will lessen the likelihood of you getting lost in various countries. 


The internet is now becoming an important source of information. Today, almost everything can be found on the internet if you really know how to find them. This means that you need to be able to understand basic English because websites are most likely to be in English. 

If you鈥檙e looking for international news, you won鈥檛 struggle with the language barrier. Understanding English makes everything almost accessible to you - research, case studies, reports, news, etc. 


Although there are subtitles available for each language, the most common subtitle would be English. This is quite expected since over 53 countries consider it as their official language. 

So if you want to understand movies, songs, or other forms of entertainment quite easily, better learn how to read and speak it. 

Challenges of Learning English

While learning the language seems to be more of a right than a privilege, there are still challenges when it comes to its accessibility. Institutions and schools that teach the language aren鈥檛 always accessible for all people. 

Here are some of the challenges: 

Unqualified Teachers 

It鈥檚 so easy to become a teacher nowadays because when you simply impart knowledge to a person, it can already be considered as teaching. But since we鈥檙e dealing with an important language such as English, those who teach it should be qualified and certified. 

Meaning, they need to have the necessary knowledge and background in order for them to be credible as teachers. The English language has so many crucial fundamentals and elements, that if not taught properly, may only defeat the purpose of learning. 

Therefore, when you鈥檙e learning English, make sure that the teacher is qualified and has sufficient background on the language - may it be a degree or a certification. 

Limited Real Life Applications

Even though students are already learning in class, it鈥檚 also very important that they have time to actually use it in real life. What鈥檚 the use of learning a skill that you don鈥檛 get to practice every day, right?

While there are exercises and activities, it鈥檚 not enough that the practice ends there. The students need to be able to practice it frequently so they truly master it. 

The challenge here is that not all students have environments that allow them to practice what they have learned. This is quite common for non-native English speaking countries where the language used at home is not English. 

So, it鈥檚 very important that the student has a supportive environment where he or she can practice what was learned in class.
