Subject: English as a Second Language
How important is learning English nowadays? Would anyone be able to speak English fluently and accurately simply by learning the rules?
English is our global language and hence to do well in our academic and career life, it is essential to be fluent in English. Learning grammar through context is how one can implement and be exposed to making the rules learned into a reality.
In what ways does language shape our identity?
Stories we read and the culture we are exposed to through the language shapes our identity. One becomes open-minded as language plays a role in defining both 'culture' and 'identity'. Characters introduced through literature shape the reader's identity through the moral lessons that are learned from the characters' experiences.
