English, an International Language

Why learn English
Because English is the most important international language in the world. Some facts prove that: English is the international language of air and sea travels, of computing, of pop music, of politics, of science and medicine, sports, TV and films.
The world today is a very small place. Communication and travel are extremely quick: think of jet planes, satellite TV, telephones, telex and fax, the Internet, for example.
Because of this, we need  a common language, and this language is English.
English is the first language in: Australia, The Bahamas, Canada, Ireland, Guyana, New Zealand, The United States.
  And it is the official second language in many other countries such as: India, Nigeria, South Africa, Israel...
    English is slowly becoming more than one language in very country it is spoken there are differences in some vocabulary words, in some grammatical structures.
  British English and American English: What is different? Let's see some differences:

Do you have a problem                                   Have you a problem                                 


                            PERSONAL PRONOUNS            

You make me feel insignificant. You treat me like a child. You belittle me.you don't like my friends, you get angry with me when I see them, you don't want me to succeed. You undermine me, nothing I say is correct. I can't even choose a movie or order dinner, you think the things I'm interested in are ridiculous, everything is rational and calculated to you, you're not supportive of my work, you don't want to to own me and control everything, but people aren't like- you can't run their lives or derive your security from possessing them. You can't expect me to spend my life trying to be what you think I should be.
