Топик 2 It is very important to learn foreign languages
A great German poet Goethe once said ‘He who knows no foreign languages, doesn’t know his own one.’ Learning foreign languages is especially important nowadays. Some people learn foreign languages because they need them in their work. Others travel abroad. For the third studying languages is a hobby.
Every year thousands of people from our country go to different countries as tourists or to work. They can’t go without knowing the language of the country they are going to.
A modern engineer or even a worker can’t work with important instruments or machines if he’s not able to read the instructions or to understand them correctly. A scientist, a historian, a diplomat — these people are poliglots as a rule, because they need foreign languages in their work. If you are fond of reading, you can read intresting books in the original. If you are fond of music, you can understand the words of the songs. If you are a sportsman, you can communicate easily during international competitions. If you want ot find a good job or get education abroad, you must understand how necessary it is to know a foreign language.
English is one of the most popular languages. It is the most spoken language in international communication. 75% of the world’s mail and 60% of the world’s telephone calls are in English. Half of the world’s scientific literature is written in English.
To know English today is absolutely necessary for every educated person, for every good specialist.
