I met someone last night who was a lawyer, he was fascinated with the whole learning of English thing, though he himself was a native speaker. I asked him why he, out of anyone, would have had such an interest, and he said, you and I deal in the same business…words!
He said he was a trial lawyer and that the winning and losing of a case can be simply down to the war of words, and if you are a good lawyer you will know exactly the right words to say at the right time.
I would say the same thing for those people considering getting married or having a long term relationship. Everyone knows that disagreements in relationships are normal, but the way in which you solve these disagreements all came down to …words!
When you are trying to get a job, of course if you have English then your chances are higher of securing the job, however, if you are up against a number of people who have the same amount of English as you, chances are you will win this job purely by…..words.
English today is everywhere around us and is needed for almost anything and anyone who wants to move their life to a new and higher place. Therefore don’t just think ‘I need my English for my university degree’, think bigger! This language you acquire will keep giving back to you again and again in ways you could never imagine.
So think again, try to get the best language course you can, try the hardest you can to do the best you can and always, always, always keep learning and pushing yourself in all the different areas in front of you.
Learning English should never stop at the certificate.
