People start learning English as a second language at various stages of their education. A child would start at an elementary level and continue further during his teen years in high school. If he desires, he may pursue profound English learning as a particular field of study in a recognized university. But perhaps he would opt for a different subject rather than language learning or miss college education. In such a scenario, his English knowledge would be limited only to what he acquired during his elementary and high school years.
It is a common case for a majority of people. Very few gain graduate-level English knowledge in their lifetime. In most instances it is due to the lack of interest of the student. He finds his school time English quite sufficient for him to apply for a new job, to get his next promotion –or maybe – to migrate. He may also decide against higher English learning at university owing to inadequate career opportunities. Compared to other advanced studies such as mathematics, medicine and law, people consider advanced English to be simply an additional qualification. English enhances an individual’s value, but only when that individual has something besides English to offer.
So, on average terms we can safely assume that lots of people depend on what English they learn in their early school days. What they have learned can be very basic, but that initial knowledge can have a far wider effect than any other educational development they undergo later in their entire course of life. We experience this every day. When we listen, read, write and speak, we never hesitate to identify or use words and sentences we learned during our childhood. We have come across those words and sentences so many times that we are confident that they mean precisely what they ought to. On the other hand when we see new words or try to use a new word we reconsider it. Referring to the dictionary, asking someone else’s opinion, searching on the Internet to make sure.
This is why elementary level English education is essential for everyone. The requirement becomes more pressing when one considers the importance of the language as an international medium of communication between individuals, communities, and even countries.
