Foreign languages are of paramount importance for everyday life. The world is no longer a combination of separate countries; it is a complex of interrelated parts, connected in many ways. Learning a foreign language is a very useful skill. Firstly, it aids communication and global understanding. Secondly, it helps cultural exchange.
Thirdly, you can find a better-paid and rewarding job. Language is also of educational value because it helps to develop the human brain. In today society English is more popular than any other one. English is the language of international communication and the most spoken language all over the world. One of the reasons of this status is that English is the dominant language in the United Kingdom, the USA, many Commonwealth nations, and other former British colonies. Moreover there is one more reason of learning foreign language for me. It gives person a chance to become a volunteer and go abroad.
Volunteer is a person who wants to make our world better and open for himself new countries and interesting people. Volunteers search for answers to some questions like:
Can we change our world?
Why so much evil is done by people to nature?
What should we do to make the Earth cleaner and friendlier?
Volunteer’s camps gives free residence and food for people, who work free of charge. Such people should know some foreign language and be enough enthusiastic and tolerant.
For me to be a volunteer is a chance to see the world, to meet new people and make friends with many of them and to have some interesting and challenging work. There are so many things which need to be changed, for example: old neglected gardens or parks, unpopular museums with beautiful exhibitions. Volunteers can alter this situation: to open art for young generations by advertisements and other methods, to make people interesting in walking in parks instead of dirty streets in cities.
I think that it is a wonderful idea to work without compensation for society. Volunteers can help it in many ways: to care of parks and trees in towns, or to plant flowers, or to clean roads and pavements. You can also look after children or organize festivals or just work in camps. There are not enough enthusiastic people who work for the sake of their city or country. Volunteers are usually young sociable men with lots of aspirations to beauty and good. I believe that the fate gives me a chance to become a volunteer and I’ll try then to make use of it.
