THE IMPORTANCE OF MASTERING ENGLISH

Posted by Alfan Ananta on 19.47



Language plays an important role in human life. One tries to acquire, learn and use language as a means of communications, simultaneously as a social symbol of humanity. By using language someone could make statements, convey facts and knowledge, explain and report something, and keep social relations among the language users. This indicate by means of language, people can express their ideas, feeling, information etc through communication.
As one of language in the world, English is considered and applied as international language. Since then, it is very popular and have been spoken and learnt by almost people in the world. There are some reasons why English is important and many people attempt to learn it. Some of them are: for finding job, traveling, interacting one each other, doing business, taking examination, doing research, writing in the foreign language, and etc.
In such developing country like Indonesia, English has a vital role in all aspects of life, particularly in science and technology. Furthermore, it can be used for developing relationships in the international forum, for reading English book (especially for students from primary school up to colleges/university), to tighten the relationship among nations in the world, etc. as students, we learn English are intended to obtain various knowledge, to comprehend and understand the textbooks learned in English , to gain knowledge and skills, and to be ready enter the university, as one of the test requirements for students of Senior High School (SMA), etc. Looking at the above important roles of English, that is why English is very important to understand and to master by every people throughout the world since before.
At the end of my speech, I will quote a wise expression: “ENGLISH WILL MAKE EVERYBODY SURVIVE AND GO ANYWHERE”. This expression reminds us how importance of English for human life is. As global or universal language, English is not only enables us to communicate and interact with every people throughout the world, but also it could alter our life to be better. Furthermore, we also must be aware that the western countries play extra ordinary role in developing and keeping science and technology. Thus, if we want to be a skilful scientists, linguists, and be able to compete with the other countries in the world, we must understand, master and learn the language they use, namely English.
Let me conclude the essential pints of my speech:
1.      English is highly necessary to be learned and mastered by everyone, in order to be able to compete in the globalization era,
2.      English is a key to open and master science and technology, because most of scientists write their experts and inventions in English,
3.      As students of anywhere schools, we have to prepare ourselves by learning hard, particularly English as well as the other subjects at school,
4.      By mastering English enables us to become survive and go anywhere throughout the world,
Goethe (a Greek philosopher) has ever said: “knowledge is not enough, we must apply. Willing is not enough, we must do.” Remember please that language indicates Nation, and don’t forget “English is a bridge for the future.”
I think it’s completely enough for me to this point. And I apologize to you if I have any mistakes in speaking. The wrong utterances are caused by limitation of my ability and the right one is merely from Allah SWT. So, once more I beg your pardon, and finally I say wassalamu’alaikum wr. wb.
