Knowledge of foreign languages helps to promote cultural, educational and technical cooperation among nations. Over the last years people of Ukraine display a keen interest in the study of foreign languages – mainly English. In our country English is taught in all the higher educational establishments and in most of schools. Nowadays English is the most important of the world’s languages. By the number of speakers it is considered to be the second. English is widely used in diplomacy, science, commerce, business and sports. It is spoken practically all over the world. It is one of the six official and working languages of the UNO. That’s why many millions of people learn it as a second language. Besides learning English at school, nowadays a lot of people study it in every possible way, attending different kinds of courses and foreign-language study groups.
And I must say, English is worth studying. First of all, a good command of English helps you to understand what’s going on and to be understood wherever you go in the world. In my opinion every visitor abroad should be able to find his own way about without interpreters. Besides, a lot of foreign delegations keep coming to our country and most likely they don’t know our language, and the thing is to help them to settle their problems.
I also think that to achieve real success in life is impossible without knowing a foreign language, especially English. If you are a scientist you need it to read special literature and to take part in conferences. If you are a student, you have a chance to continue your studies abroad if you know English. If you want to be a good specialist in any field you need English to receive new information on your speciality.
