Why We study English? It is a good and simple question, but not easy to answer. I am saying it is a good question, because We are now working people in English ; I am saying it is a simple question, because probably I can simply answer it that my work demands me to do so, working in English is my job. And why I am saying it is hard to answer? The reason is that I have been working in English for years, however, I have been chased for many times now and then by some people and by myself and the answers were always no big difference. Now, here comes the old question again. It is evident that it is the very time and is good to remind all of us to thoroughly review the purpose of our choice and to rediscover and clarify the best rational and convincible motives deep in hearts, so that we can be pushed forward not only in the activities of English studying but also in that of applications today and tomorrow.
Objectively speaking, as we all know, China has been developing for about 20 years and at the moment it is still marching forward at certain surprising high growth rate in world history and is continuing to be involved into the international society much more deeply than before in every aspect such as global economy, international politics, culture intercourse, education exchanges, inter-state trades, and military interplays as well. A more opened China and the much more and heavier global roles and the international responsibilities it is taking and it is pursuing demand more and more skilled experts who are well trained and well experienced in the international communication in English and other languages in all these areas. And therefore, it is true, that the development situation at present and trend in front of us undoubtedly will imply some more serious challenges and more profound opportunities for everyone and already did. All these are forcing us to pick up or continue to study English, or it would not be a chance for anyone to be invincible anyway as previous in this hard-to-breath tide of development unless you are ready to be dead.
Nowadays, China is transforming into a more improved market economy system to its perfection, anyone should not ignore the booming market and the arisen competitions surrounding him or around the corner and No one can avoid the shock from it. Whoever you are, and no matter where you stay in the state-owned or private enterprises, there is no where for you to be harbored, thereupon you would better actively to make a show out of yourself and supplement where you lack to tackle different and more and more complicated business and works. For instance, you shall be well qualified to what you are working at, and you should be able to balance with those who came with you in the same year or even later and were with high degrees and good background but now they have differed in position, payment and other treatments as well. That is a very exigent task for almost every one of us.
Surely, indeed, the fact is that We are English oriented now and We are working to keep up with times. I believe after years of running in studying English, We would eventually be one of the best order-made qualified candidates for any challenges and better opportunities. If the various knowledge and English are with us, nothing can be against us.
Nevertheless, be sure to remember don’t be always content with any historical achievements you have made and don’t forget to review periodically and to study English continuously more in depth and width with a plan of when and where needed, as every body is running like you. Don’t give up and relax by far when you encounter difficulties. A daily but continuous effort you are making today will bring what you expected when you decided on and it will do.
