Language is important in a human being’s life. Through language we express our feelings and viewsto build a good relationship with the community. These days English is becoming a common language to communicate with each other all over the world. One out of five people can speak or at least understand English!So when it comes to the education field people all over the world decide to study it as a second language, even children start learning English at a young age.

I am fortunate to have had the opportunity to learn English as a second language.Being a Hindi teacher in Bangalore I still use English many a time as students who come from different states and countries don’t fully understand Hindi but are fluent in English. As a Teacher I need to first make my students comfortable so that they are happy to learn another language.

It is not just in the education field, but even in any other fields English language is widely used. To establish world peace and bring different countries together, it is important to step into the culture of other countries and learn their values which is possible these days if we know English.

All the languages have their own importance and I do respect my mother tongue Kannada and national language Hindi. But

“The limits of my language means the limits of my world.”
― Ludwig Wittgenstein

So according to me to know the world we need to give importance to the world common language that is English.
