What do you learn English for? (Зачем учить английский? + бонусное видео)

Lately, Russian Forbes posted an article “You don‘t need English: how Russians trick themselves when they start learning English”. Even though it was a tricky article promoting one of the language schools in Russia, it created a tsunami of questions and debates.

What do we really learn the English language for?

  • To feel comfortable while traveling?
  • To be able to exchange ideas with other professionals from our field?
  • To learn new skills almost for free?
  • To read the newest business books and scientific articles?
  • To interact with people all around the world and learn new things?
  • To extend the capacity of our brain?

If you are not the native speaker of the Russian language but still want to learn more, feel free to write me in the comments!

Kindly yours,
