Why are you learning English?

English dictionary
I heard on the radio this morning: nearly 700 000 000 people around the world learn English! It is absolutely amazing! And I began to think. Why? Why are these people learning English? Why are you learning English? Why am I learning English?

So, here they are:

My 5 reasons for learning English language:

First and foremost: I am microstocker. I draw vector images in Adobe Illustrator and sell them through the Internet with the help of microstock agencies. For example: my portfolio on Shutterstock. People all over the world can buy my images using this site. It is my way to earn money. But the problem is: most of microstocks located in the USA and, of course, they use English language for communication with customers and contributors. I have to describe all my images in English words. The conclusion is: no English knowledge – no money.

The second reason is: great part of my life I spend in the Internet. Nearly 75% of Internet resource is in English! We live in the epoch of scientific discoveries. But it is commonly encountered problem to find wanted information in the .ru zone. But with English help I can be well informed by reading web-pages and listening public media from all over the world!

The third reason is communication. Nearly 700 000 000 people around the world learn English! Plus 1 000 000 000 people already use English! It is seems like English becomes a global language! If I can speak English, almost everyone in the world can understand me. And I’ll never get lost in foreign country. So I’ll can travel more easily there and everywhere!

My fourth reason is: I really like reading. What could be better than reading my favorite English and Americans authors in the original? O. Henry, Mark Twain, Earnest Hemingway, Jack London, Jerome Salinger, Charles Dickens, Jane Austen, William Shakespeare! I understood something: the books’ translation and books’ original are not the same. The translators are not writers. They can reproduce words’ meaning but not beauty.

And last but not least: learning English is my hobby and I really like it!
