Foreign languages are absolutely necessary for us
nowadays because of our growing international contacts with all the countries
of the world.
There are many reasons why we begin the study of a
foreign language. One of them is to be able to communicate with other people
who use this language. We may be planning to travel in one or two countries
where the language is spoken. If we know the language of a foreign country, we
can talk to its people and understand what they are saying to us. If we are
working in any branch of science, we naturally wish to read scientific books
and magazines in other languages. Making business nowadays also means knowing
foreign languages because of the growing international business contacts.
Knowing foreign languages helps people of different countries to develop mutual
friendship and understanding. We can also make our intellectual and cultural
horizons wider through contacts with people of another culture. It is also very
interesting to read foreign literature in the original. We can also read
foreign newspapers and magazines and to understand films in foreign languages
without any help.
Learning foreign languages is compulsory in all the
secondary and higher schools in our country. English is a very popular
language. People use it in many parts of the world and there is a lot of
business correspondence and literature in English.
I think, it is very important to know at least one
foreign language — English, German, French, Spanish or any other one.
