    Every language is beautiful but English is the most commonly used language among foreign language speakers. Throughout the world, when people with different languages come together they commonly use English to communicate. Training and learning English is very important because it can be the bridge to achieve satisfaction in one’s life. It improves and excels one’s chance of getting a good job, helps one communicate to have more friends and broadens one’s social networking. Lastly, people who understand English can travel much more countries by themselves than people who do not speak English. Therefore, it’s an advantage to learn English.

    Learning American English is a must for me. I’ve been an intern at a BPO company before for almost 3 months as a recruiter and I’ve encountered applicants whom I interviewed that spoke English way better than me. I told myself that I needed to improve and excel more on my English communication skills, specifically grammar, pronunciation and sentence construction. American English Skills Development Center helped me a lot in enhancing my communication skills by offering precise and compact training. Learning English in a fun way greatly encourages me to do better in every exercise and word drill.

    I got interested i studying English when i have a classmate in commercial cooking,tried to interact with me in English thought that time he is the only one who has knowledge in pronouncing English in our class,and i just smile at him.He said to me,” Why is that your reaction?” I answered, nest I don’t argue with you. If you think you are good.. you are.And said.. “jho starting today you must exercise your vocabulary, so you can interact with everyone.and you can even understand English and mostly you can speak it well.That time, I told to my self that I need to go to school and study English again.When my friend offered me to enroll here. I grabbed it without hesitation. Nowadays English is very important specially on how you are pronouncing it. I can read and everybody can do, but not everyone can do the right pronounce with the right sound.I need to be trained properly and I want my communication skills excel and be competitive in my journey in life.

I always want to improve and excel in my career so that I can work in Japan and pursue my greatest dreams. I also want to be a blessing to other people. Learning the English language is important for me to reach and understand the world. I believe that a language can be used to develop ourselves so that we can be confident and passionate in doing what we love. The American English helped me to discover great things about myself.

    Learning and improving your English is important. First, English is the universal language. Communication is smoother because most people around the world know English. Almost all diaries, journals, movies, scientific facts or discoveries have a translation in English . If there is a Japanese article, most likely, there’ll be an english translation after it. Second, it is a sign of good education. Being able to speak or excel in English needs training and practicing continously. That is why, we always have the English subject from elementary til college. People will look up to you. When applying for a job at a company, even though you’re not good in Filipino but your English is excellent, then you are most likely to get in.

    We all know that English is the second language in the Philippines. Most of the people would speak in English in order to communicate with their business partners or even foreign investors. Being the second language in our country, we are trained to use it from the time we enter our schools until we graduate.
    We need a better facility of learning yet affordable and quality educators that would give us a better understanding of the proper usage and correct grammatization. This will result in excellent future leaders and quality workers. Improvement can lead to prosperity and at the same time employment for all.

    English is the universal language. However, for us Filipinos, there is a need to improve our English because it is just our second language next to the Filipino language. In order to be globally competent, we have to excel both in written and oral English to be able to express ourselves clearly and to easily understand others. Learning from books is not enough for I believe that training with other people especially with native speakers and teachers of the English language is the best way to improve our communication skills as they will be able to point out areas for improvement.

    A lot of countries are using English as their main sub-language, and there are multiple simple English phrases spreading around the world. Having good training and an understanding of English language helps people when travelling because people can communicate and understand better. Also, people who speak English have a better chance to excel at being accepted into training programs or colleges English-speaking countries and mostly in an interview for a job. Another importance in learning English is that, they can make friends easier if they know English. They will understand each other easily and it can also improve oneself.
