Hello, Faby! Yesterday I saw our president's interview. He said one interesting think, that everyone in our repuplic have to know three languages: Kazakh (our national and native language), Russian (most popular and spoken in our republick) and English. In ourdays Kazakhstan close connection with other european countres, like Germany, Great Britain and others, therefore English connects our republick with other world and have an influence on our republick's economics. I think, that I answer your question, Faby...

Hi RitaandCarrie

I do think so too but there is one thing I disagree with you on. Chinese may be more complicated and difficult to use for many speakers of some languages but not for the Vietnamese, Koreans, Malaixians, Singaporians. These countries either have a long period of the past spoke the language as frequently as their mother tongue or have many citizens who speak chinese as their first language. As I know in my country, learning chinese is quite easy compared to english or other languages. I think the power of economics and politics is the most important.

Hello everyone,
I do believe that English language became an International
language because most of the people know this language,
I know most of us had/have a television,this is a good example why. Did you
notice that most of the channel got English language speakers?
for it is easily understood by people, And television helps the
people understand the language more often also radios.
that's why i would say English language
is right to be our International language,
we are more competitive if we know this language.

agree?

Worldwide English is known as the language of business or the language of money. Once you can speak English you have an edge when it comes to dealing or interacting to different nationalities. Also if you started young it will be very easy studying English as your second language. For me English must be considered as the primary second language, its just like English is the neutral language everyone can understand. But there are some who considers English not as their second language, it can be Italian or mandarin but in all it can be very beneficial once you learn to be bilingual.

Hello everybody,

I agree that English language is the best choice to be the international communication. That is coz of several reasons but the most obvious on eis that, it is the language of the elit people in Britian and it was used as pristigous language. then, it is using in everywhere...thus it is the right means...


Have Fun! {-:

Hi guys,
I think you have to start with something.
So, why not English
What I think is that English is not hard to study
Ýou woudn't want to study hard, like Arabics or my language Dutch, would you?
In my opinion English is a good choice
