Why Learn English?


I am a fourth-year student at a good university in Korea.  I will graduate in four months and take a job with a company in a small town near Seoul.  I have spent almost 10 years learning English.  And let me tell you, it has been a waste of time.

To begin with, I will probably never use English in my work.  My job will be with a taxi company.  Everyone speaks Korea.  The owner of the company is Korean and all of the employees are Korean, too.  The taxi drivers themselves do not need to speak English because there are very few foreign visitors in our small town.

I don't need English in my free time, either.  If I want to read about what is happening in foreign countries, I can read Korean newspapers and magazines.  I can learn all about other countries by reading in my native language, not English.

And of course all the television stations carry international stores, so I don't have to watch the news in English in order to understand what is happening all over the world.

I think of the many hours, days, weeks, even years that I spent in school and at home studying English.  Just think of what else I could have studied instead of English.  I could have studied more history, so that I could understand my country better.  Or I could have read more literature, to help me understand the great writers of my country.

Instead, I spent so much time studying English.  And for what reason?  So I could pass examinations?  What a terrible waste of time.  I really can't understand why eople need to study English for so many years.
