Students taking English conversation classes may not realise their spoken English will have a bigger impact than just the conversations within the classroom walls. Why should foreign students learn English in London? For many, they may feel speaking their native language is enough, that they can work and do what they need without knowing English. Still, it is beneficial for students to learn English in London.

One of the reasons to know English in London is that, bilingual employees will be able to learn more and grasp things quicker than employees who have not learnt English in London. This is why the English conversation classes in school are not just helpful exercises. They are a stepping stone to prepare students to continue their learning of English in London. One study found, men earned 3.6 percent more and women earned roughly 6.6 percent more than their co-workers who spoke just one language. This is why speaking English may help students get higher paying jobs when they graduate, because they are bilingual.

English is the language of innovation and also economic development

Did you know that despite China being a leader in business and being technologically advanced, the United Kingdom is not too far behind and English is still used in economic development and also in the field of technical innovations? This is why it is all the more beneficial to take away as much as you can from those English conversation classes in school. You may be asked to help design the next energy-efficient car! How can you express what innovations are needed if you cannot speak the language?

If you learn English in London, this can open up a window of endless opportunities. You will be able to seek a better job. It can also help you to be able to communicate better with the people you may be trying to do business with. You can of course, get an interpreter, but this just slows down the process whereas speaking the language allows you to understand what is being said, without any translation. It may also impress those whom you are doing business with.

It may be all in the science

Did you know that the field of science particularly relies heavily on English? This is why students need those English conversation classes. While it takes time to learn English in London, you may have an advantage knowing English in London. This is because knowing the English language can help while you are studying in any scientific field. The better you understand the language, the easier it will be to research and share your findings with colleagues and scientific journals.
