why do we need to speak english
Learning to speak in English is a big effort. It needs time, money, energy and commitment. Why should you spend time, money and energy trying to speak in English? Fair question! When Chinese and Japanese can make progress in their own language, why can t we? Fair question, again! Ours is a 5000 year old culture, we gave them zero, created epics when the world didn t even know writing and wrote the most awesome sex manual when others were still climbing trees. Why should we leave our culture now? Awww, that s quite a handful but let me try to address it. First off, these are the cool things that happen to you when you become a good communicator in English:
1. English communication increases income Yes. All good jobs need good English communication skills. Business requires you to be able to talk to clients in English. In a global market place, you can reach more customers if you can speak their language. You can source better and cheaper raw material if you can communicate with a supplier from a far off place who doesn t know your language. 2. English skills get more respect It is weird but true. We in India give more respect to those who speak in English. I don t know the reason and I don t like this but that s not important. What s important is: a) speak good English to earn more respect, and, b) if you feel strongly about it, treat those with and without good English speaking skills with equal respect. Judge people on their inner worth, not the language they speak. But, till the time everyone begins doing it, learn English so that you are not judged unfairly. 3. English gets you more knowledge Whatever be the historical reasons but the truth is that the latest research in science, technology, humanities and almost everything today happens in English.
You can either learn English to share in that knowledge or refuse to do that and try to reinvent the wheel in your own language. Former is better and it also gives you a chance to make that knowledge available in your own language. 4. English makes travel easier English is the most widely spoken language all over the world. If you know the language, you have an open window to most of the countries in the world. That s a big advantage unless your goal in life is to remain within 40 kilometers of where you were born throughout your life. 5. Biggest movies and books are in English Hollywood is the biggest movie industry. Almost all prominent books in the world are either written or translated into English. English language music is huge. Why would you want to miss out on such a huge body of fun and mind expanding stuff? 6. Knowledge of English helps make friends Yes. People not from your state, people not from your country, people not from your continent. There are so many wonderful people in the world. Wouldn t it be cool if you can communicate with them and see which ones can be good friends, which ones are fine as just acquaintances and which ones you should run away from? And, just between you and me, it can help you get dates as well as girls (or boys) may just like someone who is from a different place but can communicate with them. 7. English communication givesВ power influence Knowledge is in English, knowledge is power and you need power to fight for yourself. Most of the modern day knowledge and communication tools work in English: Courts, law books, websites most of them work in English.
Social media works in English. Mainstream media has a majorlyВ influentialВ English segment. If you don t know the language, you are denying yourself more than half the weapons. 8. English helps the world know our culture This is important. The world today is not about forcing people, it s about convincing them. It s called soft power. With our 5,000 year old culture, why should we be defensive and behave like frogs in a well? Why not study the culture and present it in front of the world in the best possible way? Didn t Vivekanand do that? Didn t he do it in English? Isn t he one of the brightest torch bearers of our glorious culture? 9. В English helps us innovate better Our forefathers were great because they dreamt of new ideas, invented new things and broke new ground. They were rightly respected throughout the world. We can either try to live off their name or create new ideas and new stuff ourselves thus bringing glory to us and them. To break new ground, you need to know where all people have reached and use that knowledge. You can t do that by shutting yourself off. 10. English skills are our national advantage Yes, and that s no exaggeration. One of the very few areas where India beats China is the number of English speaking people. Major advantage and we don t want to surrender it to our friends from Shaolin. There are many reasons to learn English, but because it is one of the most difficult languages to learn it is important to focus on exactly why it is you want to learn English.
