Well, here is a list of reasons to learn English:

(And by the way, you can share yours in the Reasons to Learn English page)

Get more knowledge1. You can get more knowledge.

If you know English well, an incredible amount of resources becomes accessible: books, courses, videos and of course, a great part of the Internet.
Most of the blogs and websites are in English (second place is Chinese).

Get a better job2. You may get a better job if you know English.

Many positions require dealing with clients, service providers or colleagues from other countries. In those cases, your knowledge of English is a critical advantage. It can help you advance further in your career.

Manage abroad better3. You are able to manage better abroad.

You can speak with confidence and get your message across clearly, instead of hesitating and stammering.
Even in non English speaking countries, it can be very helpful for a tourist to know English.

Meet new people4. You can meet many new people from around the world.

You can do that while you travel to a different country or even from home using the Internet!

Enjoy English art5. You can enjoy English art in its original form.

You can watch movies, read books and listen to music in its original and untranslated form, which is in most cases more authentic. And songs tend to be better when you can truly understand them.


A global langaugeBut why learn English rather than another language?

Well, it's a GLOBAL LANGUAGE. As an example, a German person and a Mexican person can communicate using English. They usually wouldn't communicate using Bulgarian...

The bottom line is this: more and more opportunities.
You simply have many more options, and those options can help you in life.

Any Downsides?

Like in mastering anything, it involves learning, and practicing, and making mistakes, and picking yourself up again. It takes time and money, but most of all, it takes will power.

However, it doesn't have to be backbreaking. Not if you do it right, and step by step.
