Why learn English? Just after Mandarin and Spanish, English is the third most common native language in the world and it is definitely the most learned second language. English is the today's world's lingua franca. Many occupations and professions require at least working knowledge of English, as it has become the most widely used language used in international publications, international trade, telecommunications, entertainment and diplomacy.
How hard is it to learn English compared to other languages? It depends, of course, on the languages you speak already. The most difficult aspects of learning English are the vast vocabulary, the differences between spelling and pronnunciation, the subtleties of grammar and the different ways it is used around the world.
