You might be thinking that this question is a no-brainer. "It's obvious why I want to learn English– it's the global language, and almost everyone needs to use it nowadays." That's true – every day, more and more students, businessmen and travellers are using English as a second language, and it's now spoken in so many countries that it has reached real 'global language' status. However, if you want to learn English only because everyone else does, you'll have a very hard time achieving your goal. Mere conformity is a major cause of failure. If you want to be a winner, you'll need better reasons than that.
When you were in school, you studied English because your parents and teachers told you to do so, and all your classmates were doing it, too. So you didn't even ask yourself "Why should I learn English?" You studied it because everyone around you was doing the same thing. And, you failed like most of those around you failed. Don't make that same mistake again. Find as many reasons why you should learn English as possible. The more reasons you have, the more successful you will be. Start learning English like a winner!
