Are you really a native speaker? How does English language help you? Does it change your life?? Is it really necessary to learn English nowadays?

English is my only language,and i do know a little spanish.To me English is very important if you live anywhere in the united states,because mostly that is all we speak.If is very hard to come to the US and not know english,you do not understand us and we do not understand you.I respect people that do not speak english ,but i think if you are going to live in the states you should learn the language for your own benefit and also for others.It is very hard for me to commicate with someone who speaks very broken english, and impossible to talk with them that do not know any english.If i were to move to another country,the first thing that i would do is start learning their native language so i could communicate........

English is an international language widely spoken all over the world. One can never refuse its importance by just saying that its bad to learn english. Here, British Empire ruled over united India for a long time and definitely it became the second language widely spoken at that time. I personally have no much fluency but I tell you that I really made it a tool to move forward among the professional society. I do recommend to learn the English but not at the cost of your own native language.
