It would be fair to say that in 2018, and with every year that follows in the 21st century, the connections between different countries, societies and cultures becomes stronger and stronger, and what used to be completely out of an ordinary individual’s remit, is now decidedly less ‘foreign’ to them thanks in large part to the kinds of technological and cultural developments that have joined together nearly all of the far flung corners of the world.

Learning a second language opens up a ton of career opportunities. I’m not just talking about freelancing or working location-independently either, though these are excellent ideas which I’vepersonally used. There are lots of other ways that speaking two or more languages can improve your employment prospects.

Today since we need to be globally competitive, we need to be familiar about the correct usage and appropriate way to speak the English language. All of us should learn English as our secondary language because it is the only way in order for us to be part of the fast progressing countries in the world. It is also in demand job today because there are certain countries in the world wherein most of their people are not able to speak English language correctly. They are having hard time learning to speak and communicate to others using English language. It is worth studying because you will learn a lot. Your English grammar will be enhanced and you can communicate to foreign people effectively. Lastly, English language is what we need in order for us to be part of globalization. It is the common language that most of the countries is using today. With learning that language, we are able to expand our horizon of learning. Learning English language will give us positivity in life. And let us help everyone to learn on how to write and speak English language in order for all of us to be globally competitive individuals.

Secondly it is unequivocally Mandarin. This form of Chinese is the most widely spoken language in the world, with an estimated 955 million native speakers. This equates to more than 14% of the earth’s total population, and the numbers are only set to rise as the years go by. The Chinese economy is set to overtake the currently towering US economy by 2028, which might give us an idea of a timescale for when the language might become truly dominant.

Lastly that one might wish to learn is Arabic, currently the fourth most common language used online today. There is a drastic and clear to see fast growing market in the Middle East thanks to both oil and a burgeoning products industry, not to mention the fact that the Arabic speaking world continues to be a central part of the conversation regarding complicated political and social and cultural matters. Any individual who possesses the wherewithal to be able to learn a good degree of Arabic will put themselves in an excellent position for high end diplomatic job prospects in the near and distant future. According to the World Economic Forum, Arabic is the fifth most powerful language in the world.
