Experience and Study English in the Philippines
English has been the most useful language in many countries or maybe their second language. As the time goes we are experiencing global competition in the English language. Now we must study English for us to be globally competitive.
In the Philippines, we already have an English subject even we’re just in grade school. We study from the basic to the hardest part of it. We practice this skill by reading English mediums like books, newspapers, magazines, and charts that personally made by dedicated teachers. It is also practiced by having one new word every day so that we can widen our English vocabulary. We also often open a dictionary to further understand what we are reading.
Secondary or High School and College level there are some subjects that we are prohibited to speak any language except English or the so-called rule “English Only Please.”
Finding a job requires to at least can speak, write and understand the English language. For the experience that we had from school, we can at least find a job that suits our qualifications. Nowadays, if a person can excellently speak, write and understand the English language he/she can easily find the job he/she really wants.
English is widely spoken in the Philippines. We use this language in government and businesses. It is also a medium of instruction in education. Almost Filipinos can speak and understand English because it has been part of our daily lives.
