Pupil 2: I should say that English is one of the most popular, wide-spread languages in the world. Many centuries ago, The British Isles were captured by Anglo-Saxons tribes. They called this country “Anglia”, that is “the land of Angels”, it means that we speak a very nice language, the language of angels. It sounds beautiful and fantastic!
Pupil 1: Nowadays it is very important to study foreign languages. People in Europe speak their native languages: German, French, Italian, Spanish and so on, but most of them know English very well.
Many professions require a working knowledge of English, they are, for example: pilots of international airlines, air traffic controllers, diplomats, translators, tourist guides and others.

It helps you to be a better learner of your own language and culture.
It is a good exercise for the intellect.
It can expend your knowledge in different fields: in science, politics, medicine, social and human relations, history, culture, arts and sports.
You’ll be able to travel all over the world and communicate with people everywhere.

You’ll find a good job and earn enough money to travel.
Almost all business in Ukraine today is international. English prepares you for a successful career.
You can be politicians, scientists, doctors, lawyers everywhere in the world, or girls just can be a secretary who has to write letters in English and speak English on the phone.
Pupil 2: What makes a good language learner?
You should read English books a lot, listen to English songs, learn English poems and texts by heart, do English crossword puzzles, watch English films in the original and lots of things that help you to understand and speak this wonderful language.
