The number one reason to learn English is that is the most commonly spoken language in the world.
Which Languages Have the Most Speakers?
Rank Language Total Speakers
1 English 1,132 million
2 Mandarin Chinese 1,117 million
3 Hindi 615 million
4 Spanish 534 million
Reason number two:
Learning English and having English qualifications can increase the chance of better paid employment opportunities.
According to research from the US, those who speak English as a second language can command a wage increase of up to 30%, while those who have mastered it can earn 67% more. As the US is a leader in technical innovation (behind China), the number of roles available to English-speakers has increased and US companies are looking abroad for market growth more than ever before.
When it comes to employability, having a second language is immensely valuable and being bilingual will put your application ahead of monolingual candidates. And the employment options available to those having English as a second language will only increase.
