Why English speaking skill is Important?

Post by rachithamaha » Mon, 20 Jun 2022 8:50 pm

If you know English, your chances of landing a great career in a multinational organisation located in your native country or finding work in another country will be significantly increased. Because it is the language used for international communication as well as in the media and on the internet, learning English is not only important for professional reasons but also for socialising and having fun.

This is reading a lot like a school style essay, but your point is valid. Over time I’ve realized the reason why many resent Americans for only speaking English yet continue to engage with them IN English rather than reverting to their own languages is because at the very end of the day, it is imperative that the world has one language in common in order to communicate, and for several reasons (British colonization in particular) that is English.

Lisa, they got you again. Didn't you notice anything strange about the OP's post?
a) first clue is the OPs nick
b) it's the first post
c) Joined 20 June @ 8:48 pm
d) Made 1st & only post @ 8:50 pm 2 min later
e) not even remotely related to the Forum posted in.

Needless to say (s)he will not be responding. And, from my end (the above can be seen by all from the post alone) (s)he is posting from an Indian IP address.
