This article discusses some of the motivations for learning English. It is currently from the view of school students in Japan.
Who needs English
This is a list of the professions in which English is vital, or an advantage to have (for working in Japan):
- International sports players
- International entertainers
- travel agencies
- Elementary Teachers (especially as of 2011)
- English teachers
Having accomplishments is great for motivation. The goal of learning English should not be the learning in itself; it should be for communicating an idea / thought.
