The PURPOSE of ESL is to open doors

Though there are a few die hard language lovers who just learn English because they love learning a language, most people take up and ESL course because they know it will open doors for them.

The doors might be to:

  1. Education
  2. Higher paid job
  3. Better job
  4. International job
  5. International business deal
  6. Diplomatic job
  7. Ease of travel
  8. Entrance into a country
  9. Ease of everyday life in an English country
  10. Expand your romantic network

Yes, I know you all laughed at number 10. But it’s true. Today online so many people are meeting each other and falling in love. This is not because online dating is so much better, it’s just that online …anything…opens any market up enormously, and it’s no different when it comes to looking for a life time partner.

With the usual dating your market was probably only your city or even your neighbourhood, but with the introduction of online dating, the chances of finding someone wonderful from the world out there, suddenly got more exciting.

It’s hard to imagine today anyone not considering learning English if they are under the age of 30. There is just too much going on in English for people to opt out, and if they do so many doors will continue to be locked in the future.

So tell me, what doors are you looking to be opened by you learning ESL?
