English, One of the World’s Most Important Official Languages

The English language has been one of the world’s most important languages for a long time. Since the industrial revolution and the peak of the British Empire, the English language has been one of the world’s most important languages. Would you like to learn more about English speaking culture? Would you like to come to the UK and study the English language in London? The capital of the UK is a very popular destination for foreign students who want to learn English as a second language.

The English language was first brought over to the British Isles by the Angles and the Saxons from Denmark, Germany, and the Netherlands. There are over 300 million native speakers of English (most of whom are found in the US, UK, Canada, Australia, South Africa, Ireland, and New Zealand). There are somewhere between 400 million and 1 billion non-native speakers which means that there could be almost 3 non-native English speakers for every native speaker of the language.

English is the most studied language on the planet and is regularly used in international business, the sciences, the arts, and in travel and tourism. It’s also the official language of many former British colonies.

In fact, English and French are the only two languages to hold official status in every continent. It’s the official language of 55 different sovereign states, the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), the African Union (AU), the United Nations (UN), the European Union (EU), the Council of Europe, the World Trade Organization (WTO), the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), and the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO).

Additionally, English is commonly used as the lingua franca for academia, business, tourism, science, and technology. Learning the language will allow you to take part in international student exchange programmes in English-speaking countries and academic institutions.

People all over the world have been fascinated by European and British culture. Thus, there a number of people wanting to live and study in the UK and London in particular. However, new arrivals will quickly learn how important their English language skills are once they've seen just how few people in the UK speak a foreign language. This is where Superprof's private tutors come in. They can teach private English tutorials to foreign students wanting to improve their English language skills. In order to learn English, there are two main parts of the language you'll need to study: grammar and vocabulary. You can't learn to speak English without learning both.

Good Reasons to Speak English in London

In terms of your career, speaking English and any other languages can help you gain an advantage over other candidates, command a higher salary, and even apply to jobs that wouldn’t otherwise be able to without English language skills. Education, training, experience, and skills are all highly sought after by recruiters. Learning English will open a lot of doors in London and in other English-speaking countries such as the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa, for example. The UK is the world’s fifth largest economy and is a major trading partner with other developed countries including Germany, Spain, Italy, Canada, the US, France, Australia, China, and Japan.

Thus, you could apply for positions in the UK as a journalist, translator, etc. Also, English speakers can give English lessons abroad (either during the evenings, holidays, etc.). In teaching, English is one of the most important languages in the world. Wouldn't becoming a teacher be a great career change?

To teach English, you can either become a teacher by doing a PGCE or getting a TEFL qualification such as the CELTA. Nevertheless, if you don’t have a degree or qualification, you can still become an English teacher.

English is a language that's commonly used in cooking, fashion, the visual arts, dance, architecture, music, and cinema, as well as many other fields. A knowledge of English was what allowed many English-speaking authors to spread tales of London all over the world. In fact, there are plenty of famous English-speaking authors from London: Virginia Woolf, George Orwell, Sylvia Plath, T. S. Eliot, etc.

Another reason to learn English in the UK is that getting lessons in London can help students gain the necessary level in English to attend prestigious schools and universities. Whichever level on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) you need to achieve, A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, or C2, English lessons can help you get there.

What's better than living in the UK for improving your knowledge of English grammar, pronouns, homophones, prepositions, adverbs, subordinate clauses, nouns, word families, complex sentences, everyday vocabulary?

In addition to English as a Foreign Language (EFL) classes, learners will be immersed in British culture, use the language every day, and get better and reading, writing, and speaking English.
