The knowledge of English has become an objective social  need because for millions of people  the English language is now  a tool of their Trade. Businessmen, tradesmen, engineers, scientists and scholars  all over  the world  must know  English  because it is the international means of exchanging information and experience.
There are many reasons why we study English. Now, in a period when we are reconstructing our economy, when there are many joint ventures with foreign companies operating in our country, we need a number of specialists who know foreign languages.

I think English plays an important role in our life not only because that it helps to communicate with people from other countries but also because it helps to know more about other cultures, traditions and habits.
