While standard Chinese holds the honor of the language with the most native speakers in the world, English is the most used official language, and it’s also the most widely spoken second language. About twenty percent of the Earth’s population, about 1.5 billion people, speaks English as their main or second language. So learning English puts you on a path to know the most valued language across the globe.
Some of the many reasons people learn to speak English are:
In order to speak English confidently in conversation, you’ll need to go beyond vocabulary and memorization. Learning how to speak English in context with an immersive approach, and practicing your pronunciation, is the best way to learn English.
English is commonly renowned for its extensive number of words compared to many other world languages, and has a vocabulary larger than German, Dutch, or the members of the Romance languages. However, if you can learn the most common thousand English words , you will be able to comprehend close to 88% of English in conversation.
