3rd Part
Answer the following questions completing the chart:
Is English important in your life? Why?

Is English important in your career? Why?

Yes, English is important in my life because


it will provided me with knowledge about
the language learnt (English) and the culture
of the places where people speak English.
When we learn a second language, we are
exercising our brain, because we are saving
lots of pieces of information there. In this
way learning English matters, it makes us
intellectually and culturally rich people.

English is important in my career as an


environmental engineer, because it will help
me to find better job opportunities could be
here in Colombia or in other countries.
Learning English will also give me the
ability to read about environmental issues
that are written in English. In the
environmental field there is always
something new to learn about and there are
so much information written in English
about those topics. What is more, I can also
get update in the last news about
engineering and can listen or read them in a
second language.
