If you are learning English at a college, school or further education
institution, you join approximately one billion other people around the world who

proper grammar, and try to avoid the common mistake for students learning
English, you might be wondering why you can learn English in the first place.
Language plays an important role in human life . One seeks to acquire, learn
and use the language as a means of communication, and social as well as a symbol
of humanity. By using the language a person can make statements, convey facts and
knowledge, explain or report something, and maintaining social relationships
between the users of the language. This shows that by using language, people can
express their ideas, feelings, etc. of information through communication.
In developing countries such as Indonesia, the UK has a vital role in all
aspects of life, especially in science and technology. Furthermore, it can be used to
develop relationships in international forums, to read English books ( especially for
students from elementary school to college/university), to strengthen the
relationship between the nations of the world, etc.
As students , we learn English intended to acquire a variety of knowledge,
to understand and comprehend textbooks in English learning, to acquire knowledge
and skills, and ready to go to university, as one of the requirements of the test for
senior high school students (high School), etc. Given the critical role of the
language in, which is why English is very important to understand and master by
every people around the world since the previous year.
As global or universal language, English is not only enables us to
communicate and interact with everyone around the world , but also can change our
lives for the better. In addition , we also have to realize that the western countries
played a remarkable role in developing and maintaining science and technology.

countries in the world, we have to understand , master and learn their language,
namely English.

getting an 'A ' in English is almost worthless, in terms of communication, if you can
not speak the language . Spoken English is the best career , the best universities,
and is increasingly being used at job interviews. So like it or not, English is the
language that is very important to learn how to talk.

CHAPTER II
THEORY AND DISCUSION

2.1 Why Should English


English language is referred to as a universal language. That is the language
that is often used to communicate in different countries.In general English is
divided into 2 IE, british and American. And usually people in various countries put
on the American version of English. In addition to communicating in English
language also plays an important role in finding a decent job that two years will
face free market of AFTA.Although there is still a language that can be used as an
international language. There are several reasons why the English language is used
as an international language:
1. Historical Factors
United Kingdom known as the country of inmperealis, where in the 17th
century – 19 United Kingdom has occupied 2/3 of the Earth. Automated many
countries using English as the official language. In addition, an independent
State under British nationality makes the English as the everyday language.
2. Order of the language
Language of the United Kingdom has an extensive language order and
tidy, so it is easy to learn and apply. Indonesia also has the actual order of the
language as well as with the United Kingdom, only returned to the first factor
had been the United Kingdom into the community because the Commonwealth
of Nations formed by the United Kingdom.
3. More advanced developing era
United Kingdom is known to have a more advanced civilization. Often
new thoughts emerge from there. The United Kingdom's position is strong in the
eyes of International and is considered one of the main direction of civilization.
Logically, if we want to learn from the expert, of course we have to understand
the language that he use.

2.2 English Now a Days
Nowadays english language holds an important role in the life of the global
community. English langugae has now publicly acknowledged as the international
language that has been domiciled in various industrial fields. Be it politics,
economics, or art and culture. English language has invaded all sectors and
dominated the pop culture society, the majority of the content of the (www) is
written in english language. even now In a lighter perspective, we can see the
development role of english language in pop culture society young Indonesia. The
entertainment industry been filled by many English language content.
Thus, it is necessary to realize the importance of education English language
for us, Indonesia, society for future provision and careers that will or are currently
living. Now, the global competition is getting tougher on Indonesia. By employ
foreign labor force, population, we must seek more actively again in order to
compete with the expat. Later, the foreign companies who invest in Indonesia
growing a lot, and certainly they opened the opportunity to work in their company,
especially to the people who can speak in english language.
Education industry has realized the importance of the role English language
in Indonesia. International schools started many we see in every corner of Jakarta,
and in some other major cities. English language curriculum in schools nationwide
have also been developed and/or renewed each year for current community needs.
Courses of English language from a different world, or locally owned lots are found
in every town. With a price range of different courses, language learning is
available to any English language among the public.We Can’t denied the role of
English language, particularly in Asian countries will continue to grow with over
time. And similarly, in Indonesia, the English language will continue to play an
important role in our daily lives.

2.3 The Development Of The English Language


The ability of English-speaking communities in Indonesia is recognized is
still very minimal. According to a study conducted from 2007-2009, which was
held by an institution of the English-speaking communities can be inferred

4
Indonesia world number 34 of the 44 countries that have a mother tongue other than
English.
Indonesia still lose much with neighbouring Malaysia which was ranked
9th. Many of the reasons underlying the community by Indonesia in learning the
English language, as it is difficult to learn or too complicated, feel that English is
not too important, or for people who are old it's too late to learn English. Though
English is the language which is very important and must be mastered by the
community and not of age, especially for people who are looking for jobs or who
already have a job.
Many large or small companies or Government agencies that demand a
person to be proficient in English. In the advertisements cover much of the work
that lists the applicants mastered the English language. English should be very
overwhelmed because English is an international language of the world. This
language is used to communicate and interact within the SCIENCE and
TECHNOLOGY exchanges and cooperation in business with entrepreneurs from
other countries. Job opportunities for someone who mastered the English language
is very wide open received work in companies or private institutions or the
Government. It is certain also can get a good position in the company or the
institution. Without English difficult for someone in getting a good job.
Gradually the country Indonesia will use a system like other developed
countries, the global market is where all people in different countries can work in
Indonesia regardless of profession, because in the year 2012 is still foreign workers
in Indonesia are the top position only example Supervisior, General Manager,
Managing Director, etc. Today, able and adept at mastering English is a plus
because every companies requirements which must be owned by someone of
workers or employees of the company especially if international scale.
The importance of new English-speaking consciousness it’s just realized by
someone after searching or finding scholarships info workers requiring English
language proficiency either oral or written. One of the requirements that must be
owned by someone to get a job both on the international and foreign scholarship
should have A minimum TOEFL score requirements that must be achieved is 550
