Job for English's leaner.

Postby mybikiny » Thu Feb 14, 2008 5:20 am

I heard someone tell me that "English is not a job, it's only tool for you to get a good job" :shock: and i am wondering if your major is English,what do you think about it. Learn another thing to support for your Englsih's major or keep learning English . Tell me your opinion. :|

I've got a degree in English Philology, and now I'm an English teacher. I teach English, but I also learn at the same time. It's difficult to master a language that is not your mother tongue, especially when that language is not official in the place you live and you don't get the chance to practise it every day. That's why I keep learning.

Of course English is not a job, it's a language :D I agree with that saying of yours: "English is not a job, it's only tool for you to get a good job". Nowadays, the more languages you speak, the better, and if one of them is English, great.

English isn't my major and that proverb can be applicable on/to me. If English is your major, I think you can work as a teacher and don't need learn something else. However, if you're a top manager of a big company, you will have to also learn some Asian languages, Chinese for instance. That's because it's economy is fast growing and a lot of western companies prefers to concentrate their businesses there due to they don't have to pay higher salary for local people.

I wish the international language were not English.

Teachers have a good salary in my country, but the work is no piece of cake. However, I've heard that in other countries, like China, teachers have a quite low salary.
