Why is learning Tagalog important?
Tagalog is the national language of the Philippines. The importance of learning it really varies from person to person. For instance, a foreigner who's been living or is planning on living in the Philippines should learn how to speak Tagalog as it is the one language everyone in the Philippines know, regardless of location. Vacationers would also feel more at home, and would experience the wonders that the Philippines have to offer more, if they knew how to speak the local language. But generally, the Philippines is rich in culture, diversity and natural resources. It has Hispanic, Western, and even Asian influences. It is also known for producing quality and hardworking citizens, working all around the globe. So, if you just want to learn a language that is spoken by people who you can find all over the world, then Tagalog is a great choice.
Why is English hard?
It's not! English is all around us. It's on TV, it's in the newspapers, it's on everyone's social media; it's EVERYWHERE, regardless of where you come from. This is why I have noticed that even those who have little or no education on the English language still have English skills, no matter how small. Some may not be able to speak it, but they can understand it a little. Some may not know how to write in English, but they know how to speak it. This is why I firmly believe that everyone is capable of learning English, because if we just concentrate and look closely, we already have the foundations of English. We just have to trust our instincts and practice it everyday to be fluent.
Why is English called the Universal language?
Well, I can go on about the British and American global influence, but that would be a very long story. So let's just look around us and see why English is the most important language to learn. When we go to school, English is always one of the subjects. When we apply for professional work, English is the language being spoken during interviews. When we talk business, English is the default language to use no matter where you come from (these are just based on my OWN experience and observation). If these are not signs enough that learning English is important, then I don't know what is. I am a true believer of the power of the English language, and hopefully I can help a few people with my own knowledge and experience.
