Эссе по английскому «Some people think that learning foreign languages is a waste of time and money»
Learning foreign languages is becoming more and more popular nowadays. A number of language schools and teachers is constantly growing up. But there are some people think that learning foreign languages is a waste of time and money.
In my opinion, learning languages is extremely important for a number of reasons. Firstly, it is impossible to make a successful career without knowing a foreign language, especially English. If you do not master this language, you cannot be up-to-date, establish business contacts, and carry on talks with your foreign partners. Secondly, foreign languages help you understand native people when travelling abroad.
However, there are some people who believe that it is not necessary to learn languages. Their reason is that you can always find a translator or interpreter who will do the job. Nevertheless, I cannot agree with these people because you will fall short of money to buy services of translation or interpretation every day. You had better to be able to do it yourself. In addition to it, the more languages you know the more you rise in your self-esteem.
In conclusion I would like to emphasize the fact that languages have a wide range of application, from everyday life to special purposes. Profound knowledge of languages opens up opportunities and provide advantages in professional field.
