Why Do We Learn the English Language

   I am sure, in order to have a good job one should know foreign languages. The most widespread languages in the world are Chinese, Spanish, English and some others. But every well-educated person in the world speaks English, because it is the language of communication, business, science and culture.
   English is now the most important and widespread language in the world. It is the state language in five countries: Great Britain, Canada, the USA, Australia and New Zealand.
   English is one of the six official and working languages of the United Nations. It is the second working language in the European Community. In many Asian and African countries, such as India or Egypt, in former British colonies people speak English besides their native one. People also speak English in Europe. English is spoken practically all over the world.
   Russia has relations with many countries. More and more direct contacts are established with the countries of Europe, with the United States, Great Britain, Canada and other English-speaking countries.
   Taking into account the economic development in our country, hundreds of joint ventures have appeared in every city and town of Russia recently. Besides, a lot of foreign delegations come to our country. Our businessmen, tourists, experts often go abroad. As I have already mentioned just English is the language of the international communication. That is why it is very important to learn English.
   Nowadays, a lot of people study foreign languages in every possible way. Foreign-language study groups are organized at industrial enterprises, at the offices of big firms, at the educational establishments, at research institutes.
   I think English is worth studying. There is a proverb "A new language — a new world".
   There are some schools specialized in studying foreign languages in Russia. Their pupils have lessons in foreign language every day. But their number is rather small. Most schools have Foreign Language only once or twice a week. It's impossible to master any foreign language under such conditions. That's why those who want to improve their knowledge have to take private lessons.
Зачем мы изучаем английский язык

   Я уверен, что для того, чтобы иметь хорошую работу, нужно знать иностранные языки. Самые распространенные языки в мире — китайский, испанский, английский и некоторые другие. Но каждый образованный человек в мире говорит по-английски, потому что это язык общения, бизнеса, науки и культуры.
   Английский язык сейчас — самый главный и самый распространенный язык в мире. Это государственный язык в пяти странах: Великобритании, Канаде, США, Австралии и Новой Зеландии.
   Английский язык — один из шести официальных и рабочих языков Организации Объединенных Наций. Это второй рабочий язык в Европейском Союзе. Во многих азиатских и африканских странах, таких как Индия или Египет, в бывших Британских колониях кроме родного языка люди говорят и по-английски. Говорят по-английски и в Европе. На английском разговаривают практически во всем мире.
   Россия поддерживает отношения со многими странами. Все больше и больше прямых контактов устанавливается со странами Европы, Соединенными Штатами, Великобританией, Канадой и другими англоязычными странами.
   Сотни совместных предприятий появились в каждом городе и городке России. Кроме того, много иностранных делегаций приезжает в нашу страну. Наши бизнесмены, туристы, эксперты часто ездят за границу. Как я уже отметил, английский — язык международного общения. Вот почему так важно изучать английский язык.
   Сейчас иностранные языки изучают разными способами. Группы изучения иностранного языка организованы на предприятиях, в офисах больших фирм, в образовательных учреждениях, в исследовательских институтах.
   Я думаю, что английский язык достоин изучения. Есть пословица: «Новый язык — новый мир».
   Есть школы, которые специализируются на изучении иностранных языков. Их ученики ежедневно занимаются иностранным языком. Но таких школ мало. В большинстве школ уроки иностранного языка только один или два раза в неделю. Невозможно совершенствоваться в любом иностранном языке при таких условиях. Поэтому тем, кто хочет улучшить свои знания, следует ходить на дополнительные занятия.

Age   "How old are you?" It's a simple question, and there's usually a simple answer: 'sixteen years old', 'twenty years old', 'fifty-five', etc. But if someone is described as 'young' or 'middle-aged' or 'old', then how old are they? It's difficult to know because these words have different meanings for different people.   Except for the word teenager, which describes young men whose age are betw
About Myself    It is both pleasant and a bit difficult to speak about myself. It is pleasant because every person enjoys speaking about his or her interests, likes or dislikes.
