LEARNING FOREIGN LANGUAGES
It is necessary to learn foreign languages. That's why pupils have got such subject as a foreign language at school. Everybody knows his own language, but it is useful to know foreign languages.
I learn English, because I understand that I can use it. For example, if I go to England I'll be able to speak English there. If I go to the USA, I'll speak English too. English is used not only in England, but also in other parts of the world.
I learn English because I want to read foreign literature in the original. I like reading books by English and American writers: Charles Dickens, Mark Twain, Lewis Carroll and others . I realise that I must know English well ehough to get a deeper understanding of English books in the original.
I like to travel. But it is difficult to visit countries, when you don't know the language of these countries. If I know the language of the country, where I am going to, it will be easier to travel there. If I want to ask something, I can do it in English.
I like to read books. And I like to read newspapers, too. If I know, for example, English I'll be able to read English newspapers and magazines. Knowledge of foreign languages helps young people of different countries to understand each other, to develop friendship ties between them. For example, we are having a foreign exhibition in Moscow. If I know the language, it is easy for me to come to the exhibition and explore the shows.
You can see a lot of advertisements, signboards, names in the streets. They are in foreign languages. Very often they are in English. If you know English, you can read and understand them.
Now we buy many clothes from other countries. If you know English well, you can read something about the size of this or that thing. It is clear for you what it is made of.
There are a lot of films in foreign languages. If you know foreign languages, you can understand films without any help and get a better impression of them.
There are international youth camps all over the world. If you can speak foreign languages, it will be easy for you to visit such camps and speak with the boys, girls, men even if they don't know Russian.
In short, I understand that I have to learn English in a proper way and I'll try to do it well.
