I think learning English is more important than earning extra money because being able to communicate and understand English is a skill that will help one earn more money. English seems to be the major language being used in communication with foreign countries. It has become a universal language especially in trade. Earning some extra money won't bring us far but being proficient in English can really boost our potentials especially if you are in a country where the people doesn't speak in English very often. Besides that, the value of money fluctuates frequently whereas knowledge is an asset that will stay with us forever without much change in its worth.

i think it primarily depends on the person. i know english so obviously making money is what im here for. i think for those on here who dont speak english very well should focus on that because that could have a great impact on them. their ideas will be better understood by a larger community, i assume better job opportunities or something along those lines. as for us who just wanna make money, we appreciate knowing what in the world someone is trying to say.

I already know English. It was my first language. So I guess the money is more important. But I agree there are other things on mylot not just the money. Thanks for reading and good luck.
