English and me — Английский и я
The English language has become a world language in politics, sciense, trade and cultural relations. It is the language of computer technology. So most things are published in English, and if you want to keep up with the latest ideas in any subject, you need English. The native speakers of English live in Great Britain, Australia, New Zealand and USA. English is one of official languages of the Irish Republic, Canada and the South Africa Republic. As a second language it is used in the former British and US colonies. English is the language of international communication in many areas of life: air and sea transport, tourism, sport and entertainment, etc. Almost all kinds of jobs use English language. English is used in my own country as a second language. Many modern magazines and papers are in English. I think, that the international role of English is standing more and more important nowadays. I use English outside the classroom almost every day, because I play different computer games, which are in English. I have been learning English language at school 9 years, but I have never been in English-speaking country. I listen to many English songs. My favourite groups are: East 17, Plazma, Aqua, Eiffel 65, etc. My sister Ann speaks English, because she learns at the University. In my opinion, I will use English in the future, because almost all jobs demand knowledge of English.
