If I understand your question correctly, you are wanting some ideas about why it is necessary to learn English. Here are some thoughts on that:

English is fast becoming a "universal language." It is used in business across the globe; it's used in entertainment, sports, and politics. People who live in non-English-speaking countries will have a definite career advantage if they become fluent in English, and will also have the opportunity to communicate with more people from other countries who also speak English. Learning English opens the door to a wider world.

I hope this helps give you some ideas for your essay!

Starting a new way for English learning - anyone have a personal bookcase in our brain

Hello guys
I would like to start a new way for English learning I think that anyone of us have to personal bookcase in our mind, you know maybe I learn a new word after five times repeating and others person only one reading it and after that he/she is able to use it .I want to say that there are very kind of way for language learning but maybe one of them be useful for us. I'm going to write a new text every day. When you write a new text, your brains start to recovery new words and if you read it with aloud, part of your brain will be activated in the other word it is a part of unconscious.

I have a question:
English has become a global language nowadays, some say it's caused by the British colony, others think the Industrial Revolution was the main reason to this phenomenon. However, I would argue that France was as well a powerful country in the past, which controlled almost the entire Africa. Why is that only English become the most popular option for second language learners?

I feel like learning English enables me to know so much more than before. Academically, when I entered college, all textbooks are written in English. Even though there are some translated versions ,I hardly found valuable information in there. Socially, when I went on a foreign exchange, English is the internationally langue for me to communicate with others. I made a lot of friends coming from around the world. I learned so many things from those who come from different background, culture and religion. As a whole, English can improve the competitive advantage.

I think you can give the example of Jack Ma, the richest man in China. He had a desire to learn English, so he rode his bicycle each morning to a nearby hotel to talk with foreigners. Without English, Jack Ma could not go to USA to be a translator and not have the passion for the Internet, so Alibaba would have not founded.

As far as i concerned, studying english decades ago in my country was not really necessary. However, nowadays it becomes the second most interesting language. It's cause by many of graduates who want to climb their dream by taking not only higher education but also working in overseas. Those are the reason why english is imperative in my country.

Yes, it is necessary to learn English as it is an international language. When going abroad in a non-English speaking country, if we don't know each other's native languages then usually we all resort to English.

Hi Baonhi
This depends on what your career plan in the future is. If you are happy with stay in your country, then it is fine to not learn any other languages. Because you do not need them. If you are seeking a better life and career status, then learning a second language is the key to the world, especially English.

No, it is not necessary to learn English. Of course, It would give you many advantages over those who only know one language, especially since it is consider as a "universal language". However, it depends entirely on your interests, for instance if you´re planning to study abroad or just travel it would be a bonus to know English. Now if you want to stay in a non-English speaking country for the rest of your life then it would not actually matter whether or not you know another language.

Flexibility is also a reason why we should learn English. For example, you can write a sentence in active or passive tense, or a word might be a noun or an adjective. In that sense, English users are in an advantageous position to express their ideas in many ways

The only thing that becomes important and creates attention is the one that stands out from many in a unique way. So having an English background or learning English, is very important as it gives you the upper hand in the field of work and other areas for communication.

English is a common language which is spoken in each corner of the world. For one's personality, It is like a cherry on the cake. English as a language is required everywhere you go. For example, if you go for an interview in any multinational company, business, even in most of the schools in the world. It is sure that your native language will not be known in each country but it is sure that English is spoken everywhere.

So, English is a language which can help you conveying your message regardless of the country/city you are in.

I hope it make sense to you.
Thank you.

You need to place commas, periods and other punctuation with no space after the word, then a space and the next word is to start with a capital letter. I moved some thoughts around hope you do not mind. I am not sure this is ok this is my first time helping. But you had good thoughts but try to use them as if you were actually speaking aloud to someone, by doing this you will be able to hear if it sound right of should be re-worded. Good Luck!

I suggest you to reword some of your sentences. For instance, don't open your arguments with "actually" in this kind of question. The question asked whether ENglish is important to learn or not (neutral). It doesn't say something like "English is not important, is it? (negative)".

Other things I would suggest you to fix is always remember adding a space after any punctuations. Also, always capitalise the word if the word starts the sentence.

Oh and another thing. When you post questions, try to add information about the essay: maximum number of words, type of essay, where you get it, etc.

Good luck!

First of all, I am not a native speaker of English, but if your future career or academic development is big enough, learning English is your only way. You will find that almost all colleges and universities or official organizations or multinational enterprises require their employees to master English. It also paves the way for you to integrate into such a globalized world.

Yes, it is true. I think it will be quite shifting because of other language in the global area will also dominate such as Mandarin.
