Learning English

Post by dianne » Thu Oct 23, 2008 2:50 am

Hello everyone, I´m a student in Spain, trying to study to brush up on la traduccion textos tecnicos since that is what I´m finding most difficult. I think my best strength is in speaking English, I need to work on my grammar and maybe practice translation and interpreting correctly, as they are very specialized in each language, don´t you think? I was considering maybe going to una academia de ingles en Sevilla since that is not too far from my province and I would like to become as perfect as possible in my chosen language to learn. English is such a good language to learn, they speak it almost everywhere these days, but I want to be very very good at it. My ambition is to get an MBA executive Madrid in the city, so I can work for a big business as a multi-lingual worker, but I think I should focus on mastering my English before I start doing that. The most spoken languages in the world are English, Spanish and Chinese, but I think I made the best choice in picking English, Chinese must be getting popular now as the country is growing so much, but it can´t be better to have than English, right? Maybe I am wrong, has anyone had any experience looking for jobs using their languages as a how you say…”selling point?”

How important is learning English to students in China? When I was in China I was impressed with how enthusiastic young people seem to be to learn English...On the list of academic priorities, where would Chinese students place learning how to speak and write in English? Is this ability required for university entrance exams and/or to get a good job? And I see lots of info on private schools for English in China, do students feel such extra tutoring is necessary?
