More about the subject
Language skills, of course, necessarily comprise your own main and original language as an essential and innately humanly based property and capacity. Within this language in which you are founded, you should actively, consciously and continuously avail yourself of training and holding on to a large and rich vocabulary together with concepts of many shades and nuances.
Consequently, you become able to express everything under the sun, and not only concrete matters, but also joy, thoughts, doubts, stands, dreams, ideas, sorrows and longings, striving all along to express yourself in rich and not scant ways. Thus, you thrive in the company of your fellow man.
But not only will that be a thrill of your life, because that is what having good company and being good company do, it will also pave your way to becoming an intellectual with language control. That intellectual teacher will be of importance to their country and to the wider world, a possibility much closer to modern man than in any other century.
Learning a global language: English
You don’t learn languages just for your own benefit, but also to benefit the Other; those on the other side of a border, in another country, those in a bad situation, those in need of the outcome of your labour in the shape and form of an intellectualism made available because of your politically based understanding of not only the personal, but the common value of your language abilities.
You need to develop your language to become better at formulating theories and concepts, to think and talk about abstract matters and figure out things, speaking with others and with yourself. You should never cease to hone your language skills during the course of your lifetime.
Language is a means of expression and communication. The more you master your language, the better you can express your humanity and what is on your mind, the better you can understand what others want to communicate to you, and the more apt you are to consciously plan and implement common deeds and actions.
A precise and exact language with a rich vocabulary helps you to become a master of communication. It also assists you in thinking more clearly and actually knowing what you are saying, and in expressing yourself in a rich, varied language, consciously bringing across what you want others to understand.
A rich language is also a foundation for being able to create concepts and theories, which again are necessary to concentrate new knowledge into a deeper understanding and to develop more complex and abstract thoughts and ideas.
Language is a tool that lets you in on new knowledge and understanding, exploring the reality of the world, its people, countries, spirit and prospects for the future. Whether seeking knowledge through books, radio, television, conversations, investigations, teachers, news, the Internet or other sources, language is the fundamental prerequisite.
Language skills give you access to a large range of functions, facilities and experiences of the modern world, wherever you live and work. Think of access to libraries, the Internet, cash machines, maps, traveling by road or air, modern means of communication such as mobile phones, computers and more.
English language skills give you the ability to get into contact with and communicate with people from many other countries, learn from them, enjoy their company and cooperate and join forces with them.
English is a tool which gives you access to a great variety of news and knowledge about political, economic, social and cultural conditions all over the world, as well as arts and entertainment from around the world via television, the Internet, books, magazines, films and performances.
Mastering the English, you are freer and in a better position to travel the world, and more able to find your way around, and you will nearly always be able to find somebody who speaks English. You will be able to serve on a global platform, a must for the modern intellectual who wants more than the average for his life and work.
