English is everywhere. Globalization and the Internet have made English an important aspect of our lives –
If we live in India and have the knowledge of English, we can learn from the experiences and mistakes of the people living in other developed countries. We can reject the unacceptable and accept the justifiable. Using English, we can also promote our theories among the global audience. English has thus become an effective means sharing experiences and strengthening our cultural identity all across the globe.

Knowledge of English opens up a large number of employment opportunities in almost every business domain. Almost every employer expects his employees to have basic to excellent English speaking skills.
If you were supposed to travel to another country, either for business or as a tourist, imagine how you would communicate with their natives. English, being a global language and spoken by more than 950 million people all across the world, certainly can make your life easier when you travel. Knowledge of English can let you communicate with people anywhere you travel.
English is the major medium of education in India. Those students who are interested in higher studies from universities and colleges abroad, they are supposed to clear exams like IELTS and TOEFL. These test your proficiency of English in usual day to day verbal and written communication.
