Learning English could be fun if you put your heart into it. Not only you'll learn to interact with other people but you'll also learn different cultures.

Learn English - Learn About Other Cultures

English is a great language. Nowadays, people are very eager to learn the universal language. Since the primitive era, our nature is to socialize and in order for us to do so, we need to communicate through a common language - the English language. Wherever we are in the world, as long as we speak the common tongue, we will never be lost.

I was quite impressed by my 10-year old Korean student when he presented me his own article entitled: "Learn English - Learn About Other Culture".

This was the content of his write up:

"Learn English - Learn About Other Culture"

"We can learn English these days. It can help us learn about other cultures, too.

First of all, we can watch TV programs in English. We can watch international news, cartoon shows and many other programs in English.

Second, we can speak English with other kids in other countries. We can learn about their countries and also tell them about our own country, as well.

Third, we can read more books in English. We can read many books in English and learn more about other places.

Let's learn English so that we could learn about other cultures."

Though the article uses simple words and grammar, I could comprehend my student's willingness to learn the language spoken by everybody. His determination to speak and his skills to communicate will never fail him to learn not only the culture of his own country but to other countries, too.

So, let's learn English and together, let's learn about other cultures.
