Foreign Languages in Our Life

   Learning a foreign language isn't an easy thing. Nowadays it's especially important to know foreign languages.
   Some people learn languages because they need them for their work, others travel abroad, for the third studying foreign languages is a hobby. Everyone, who knows foreign languages can speak to people from other countries, read foreign authors in the original, which makes your outlook wider.
   I study English. It's a long and slow process that takes a lot of time and efforts. Over 300 million people speak it is as a mother tongue.
   The native speakers of English live in Great Britain, the United States of America, Australia and New Zealand. English is one of the official languages of the United Nations Organization and other political organizations.
   English language is a wonderful language. It's the language of the great literature. It's the language of William Shakespeare, Charles Dickens and others. Half of the world's scientific literature is in English. It's the language of computers technology.
   The great German poet Goethe once said, «He, who knows no foreign language, doesn't know his own one ». That's why in order to understand oneself and environment one has to learn foreign languages.
   I think, that to know English today is absolutely necessary for every educated man, for every good specialist.

Иностранные языки в нашей жизни

   Изучение иностранного языка — нелегкое дело. Сегодня особенно важно знать иностранные языки.
   Некоторые люди изучают языки, потому что это необходимо для работы, другие — потому что много путешествуют, для остальных это просто хобби. Все, кто знает иностранные языки, могут общаться с людьми из других стран, читать иностранных авторов в оригинале, что делает кругозор шире.
   Я учу английский язык. Это долгий и медленный процесс, который отнимает много времени и усилий. Более 300 миллионов человек говорят на нем, как на родном языке.
   Носители языка живут в Великобритании, Соединенных Штатах Америки. Австралии и Новой Зеландии. Английский — официальный язык Организации Объединенных Наций и других политических организаций.
   Английский язык прекрасен. Это язык великой литературы. Это язык Уильяма Шекспира, Чарльза Диккенса и других. Половина научной литературы мира на английском языке. Это язык компьютерных технологий.
   Великий немецкий поэт Гете однажды сказал: «Кто не знает иностранных языков — не знает и своего языка». Поэтому, чтобы понимать себя и окружающих, необходимо изучать иностранные языки.
   Я думаю, что знать английский сегодня необходимо каждому образованному человеку и хорошему специалисту.
