Learning to communicate in English is far more beneficial nowadays than in the past. From academic requirements to personality development, learning English for job hunting is the most popular reason among people I know who are struggling to land a good paying job.
Indeed English becomes the widely spoken language of instruction around the world and having said this, most students are required to take some widely know English tests like IELTS, TOEFL, OET, TOEIC and PTE. For people who are planning to study overseas especially in an English speaking countries, this must not be taken for granted and starting early on is a better option.
Further, proficiency in English helps people to present the better version of themselves. People are able to present and express themselves fluently and with clarity. Better presentation results to the development of self-confidence. Oftentimes in my experience, a good speaker does not have the best topic but a good presentation skill which leaves a good mark to the spectators only because their confidence is real and engaging.
Last and not the least, a convincing answer to the employer’s interview right at the first encounter is a great deal breaker. Learning what to say and how to say it at the right time can make the interview process a lot easier for both parties. Landing a job nowadays only takes a good oral presentation skill which covers fluency, accuracy and engagement in the interview process assuming that the applicant is already applying for that perfect job. A good spoken English is an obvious skill that anyone can have to land from a variety of jobs available online or face-to-face.
