2Language is the means of communication. The most common way of expressing an idea for people is to say it out loud. Language helps people to understand each other. There are many peoples in the world and most of them have their own languages. Some languages are spoken by many people, for example, Russian and Chinese. Other languages are spoken by a few people, for example, languages of Native Americans.
3The knowledge of foreign languages helps people to understand each other when they travel. One of the most important languages is English. It is the language of international communication. Many people can understand each other if they speak English. And that’s why people all over the world study English. And I’d like to mention some reasons for that.
4Nowadays the English language is spoken by 750 million people and half of those speak it as a mother tongue.
5It is interesting to notice that 60 per cent of the world’s telephone calls are made in English.
675 per cent of the world’s mail are made in English.
780 per cent of the information in the world’s computers are also in English. The rise of English is a story of wonderful success.
8When Julius Caesar landed in Britain nearly two thousand years ago, English didn’t exist. The English language was born from the union of the Norman conquerors and the defeated Anglo-Saxons.
9In the 5th century, English was already spoken by the people who inhabited Great Britain.
10 At the time of Shakespeare, English was the native language of about 6 mln Englishmen. Then as Great Britain conquered many lands English was spoken not only in Britain but in the countries and even continents.
11English is so widespread now that it has become the most useful language for all kinds of international communication and the first truly global language. Nowadays English is the international language of business people, sportsmen, scientists, politicians, students. English is the world computer language. For many people it is the key which opens the door to the world.
12As far as I know is one of the richest languages in the world. Let’s compare English, German and French. English has a vocabulary of about 500 000 words, German-185 000 words, and French-100 000 words.
13There are a lot of borrowings from English in other languages. For example such words as book, water were borrowed from German; library was borrowed from Latin; telephone, television were borrowed from Greek; alcohol and algebra come from Arabic; chocolate and tomato from native American languages; tea comes from Chinese.
14I’m sure that nowadays no man can be considered an educated one without any knowledge of development and new inventions in his field. The most important demand to a specialist now is not to know everything in his field, but to be able to find the necessary information.
15English is now the language used in computers. About half of the post and scientific books are in English. English is the official language of many international organizations such as the Olympic Committee, the Organization of the United Nations.
16Learning a language is also learning the life of other countries, their customs and traditions.
17Now the knowledge of English is considered a necessary feature of a good employee. Those who want to find an interesting and well-paid job must know two or three languages.
18Learning English broadens your mind and way of thinking. So English is a global language nowadays. The problems of war and peace, ecology, democracy and many others can’t be solved if people do not speak the same language. You’ll agree with me that the English language surrounds us like a sea and like the waters of a deep sea it is full of mysteries…
