Increasingly, English is becoming the language of international business. Some sectors, e.g. industries and engineering, use English as the common language of communication in international projects. If you are looking to fast-track your career, a good knowledge of English will help you gain employment, not only in English-speaking countries, but anywhere in the world.
English is also increasingly the medium in which courses are being taught in international colleges and universities, such as Utrecht University (The Netherlands), University of Helsinki (Finland) and Monash University (campuses in Australia, Malaysia and South Africa).
