As an international standard language, English was introduced to other countries over400 years ago and was widely in the world gradually. As a result, a good command of English is of great significance in a number of fields.
On my own point of view, I reckon that it is intensely necessary for us to learn English, whose ultimate goal is to achieve cross-cultural communication and to exchange ideas with foreign friends.
Nowadays, people attach great importance to learning English, mainly for two purposes. Firstly, a good command of English definitely lays a solid foundation for a more successful business career. Secondly, English can serve as a bridge on which people from different cultural backgrounds can exchange thoughts freely.
My personal experience can be a good example to illustrate the positive effects that English has on our daily lives. Once I paid a visit to Thailand where the local buildings were so amazing that I could not catch up with the guide and lost my way while busy taking photos. On knowing the situation, I turned to a shop-keeper and told her my problem in English. Luckily, she could speak English as well and helped me find my way. Only then did I realize the important role the English played on the cross-cultural communication.
English，one of the 6 official languages of the UN, is the standard language for international communication, which is a great requirement in many fields. English has been spread by the UK and the USA for 400 years.
From my point of view, a good command of English is a must for people who live in the modern society. For one thing, it can provide us with a lot of opportunities in the future, which will surely do good to our lives. For another, it will be more convenient for us to communicate with foreign friends, helping to broaden our horizon.
For most of the people, learning English is to prepare for a brighter future. For us high school students, learning English will help us get a good mark in the gaokao, which will determine which college one is going to attend. For college students, learning English well does good to their future career and helps develops themselves in their society.
Use my own experience as an example. When I traveled to the USA a good command of English helped me understand what the local people said better, and get what efficiently, making my trip more enjoyable, which truly let me realize the importance of learning English.

From my perspective, it is necessary for us to master English. Only when we equip ourselves with English can we make international communications.
People learn English for various reasons. Some people learn it for special requirements in a number of fields and occupations; others learn it because they want to know more about western cultures.
Learning English makes a positive effect on our lives. Take myself as an example. In 2010, our family went to Expo in Shanghai. When we were at the queue, I notice that a foreign mother was anxiously searching her child but no one could communicate with her fluently. I ran to her and asked her if she need my help. Then she described her child’s look to me and we searched her child together. Finally, we successfully found her child. In this incident, English became the bridge between us. It is the English that helped me to understand what she meant. Thanks to English, our communication was more convenient.
