According to Mr. Walker, English is studied everywhere, in Latin America, India, South-East Asia and, most of all, in China, where this language is studied in the third grade by law. That’s why China would become soon the largest English-speaking country. Learning English represents the opportunity to get a better life. In the exam that determines the Chinese students’ future, 25% of their grade is based on English. The intensity to learn this language is unimaginable but, is learning English a good or a bad mania? English is the second most spoken language in the world. Our native language is our life, but with English we can be part of a wider conversation, a global conversation where the most important decisions are made. That is why English represents hope for a better future. A common language to solve common problems.
