Learning something new involves a lot of courage and hard work. Not because one is weak at it, or because one can’t do it, but because the ability to learn something new is in all of us. All it requires is a little push, from our side as well as from the side of others who play an indirect role in our learning.
‘ENGLISH’ as it has become one of the most widely spoken and written language everywhere. Those who cannot speak English or read the language are looked down upon. Even for things which seem to be very easy, a person whose English is not very good may refrain from doing the task. For instance, when a mother who is a homemaker may shy away from going to the Parent- Teacher meeting, in her daughter’s school. As the mother would feel that because of her broken English she might embrace herself as well as her daughter.
But this is not the only reason, why one should thrive upon learning English. The other reasons are-
