Why Is English Important?

Our learning specialists and academic tutors provide 1:1 individualized tutoring in English for students of all ages.

 

English is the Language of International Communication. English may not be the most spoken language in the world but it is the official language of 55 countries and spoken by an estimated 2 billion people across the globe. Being able to speak English is not just about being able to communicate with native English speakers. It is the most common second language in the world. Learning English is important as it enables you to communicate easily with your fellow global citizens.

The importance of learning English in the international marketplace cannot be understated – learning English really can change your life.

Difficulties and Problems in Learning English

Grammar

 

English Grammar is complex making it difficult to remember and use logically. Ensuring you use the correct grammar can be tricky, especially when you are in conversation with someone and they are speaking at a fast pace. Learning grammar is like learning to drive. You can learn all of the theory, rules and regulations, but you won’t master it unless you practice it and it starts to become second nature to you. Grammar is extremely important. Incorrect use of grammar can confuse the person you are speaking to and even change the meaning of what you are communicating.

 

 

Vocabulary

 

It is often a challenge to learn vocabulary particularly when it comes to verb variations and understanding which tense should be used in various situations. English has one of the biggest vocabularies of all languages and it can be very confusing for non-English speakers to master.

Slang and colloquialism

 

The English language has an extensive vocabulary and complicated grammar. There is a lot to teach students and rarely are they exposed to the slang words used by English speakers in everyday conversation. Sentences can be predominantly filled with slang words so maintaining a conversation can be difficult for anyone who doesn’t understand what they mean.

 

 

Pronunciation

 

Knowing how to pronounce words in English can be very difficult. English speakers have been taught these from an early age which is how they know not to pronounce the ‘k’ on ‘knight’. They are taught the subtleties in how to pronounce something to communicate the right message. Furthermore, depending on the first language of the English student, it can often be difficult to pronounce certain words properly, having not ever had to create that phonetic sound before.

 

 

Variations in English

 

The variations in the different forms of English can often be difficult to understand. For example, the difference between using formal and informal language or the differences between spoken and written language. This leads to students writing words phonetically. For example, how they would say it rather than its spelling.
