People in this part of the world are expected to use English fluently because it is the preferred language of our commercial industry. A job applicant needs to at least express himself in comprehensible sentences, so he could get a job; a waiter should at least know basic conversational English, so he could serve his customers better; and a school teacher should master the language, so that her students would learn their lessons well.
Both locally and internationally, our global workforce is highly competitive because of our firm grasp of the English language. We are able to express ourselves and meet the demands of our clients because we fully understand the language that is being used. By learning and speaking it properly, we are able to convey our messages clearly and sell our products and services successfully. Most nations have adopted English as their second language, therefore, enabling their workplace to keep up with the global standards. The language is very much prevalent on the internet and social media, so we must fully take it to our advantage. And since English is the language of the most powerful countries in the world today, we are bound to learn how to effectively use it not only for our company’s growth, but for the whole economy as well.
