Why should I learn English? Well, where do we start…

“Learning English in England offers so much more than just learning a language.”

We are lucky enough to live in a time where the world is a smaller place. We have countless opportunities to communicate with people from all over the world. Through the power of the Internet and Social Media, you can keep up to date with news and stories from every corner of the globe. But, did you know that over 50% of the Internet is written in English?

The most popular Twitter and Facebook users write in English, even the most popular football clubs like Real Madrid and Barcelona use English as their first choice in communication.

When people of different Nationalities meet, the most common language spoken is English. This makes English the ‘Lingua Franca‘ and truly it can be used to communicate on a global scale.


It is not only the Internet that has a large percentage of English use. Throughout the world, our media communicates in English, the most popular films and books, global sports and brands. The next big Hollywood blockbuster will be in English, the next smash hit song will probably be recorded and released in English. Even the books that are not written in English are quickly adapted to reach the largest market on earth, English speakers.

The books that you study at school? It has been suggested that around 90% of all academic books are written in English. If you want to study at University, climb to the top of an International company, to communicate with the global community, you will find it easier through knowledge of English.


With over 400 million first language speakers and 90 countries where English is taught as the 2nd language, that is a lot of conversation and friends to be missing out on!!
