Want To Learn English?
English is one of the major world languages that is used for business and trade. Spoken in several notable countries including the UK, US and Australia, it has become one of the most widely spoken languages worldwide and is particularly popular as an additional language. Due to its wide spread, it is one of the most useful languages to learn, especially in a professional capacity.
In terms of native speakers, English has around 400 million around the world. Adding in second language and other speakers, that number goes well above the 1 billion mark, nearing 2 billion. This makes it the most spoken language in the world. There are essentially two distinct variations of the English language: British English and American English. While these are mutually intelligible, there are still some spelling and vocabulary differences. Within each variety there are also multiple dialects. It is a West Germanic language, being closely related to german and Dutch.
English makes use of the standard Latin Alphabet when written. It follows an SVO structure and does not use the inflectional case system. There are some remnants of it however, which can be seen in pronouns. Grammatical gender can also be seen when looking at pronouns, but is not a feature of the English language.
English is generally learned as a second language in schools at a young age around the world, though comprehension may vary a lot. It has many usage scenarios relating to travel and business, as well as in professional contexts thanks to its role as the lingua franca. If there is one language you should choose to master and achieve fluency, English is a very good choice.
