Looking into the fact that most companies, especially in big city like Jakarta, offering job vacancy to people who have English skill are very important. As we know, there are many foreign companies that are investing in Indonesia because our country has lots of natural resources. It certainly helps Indonesians to get opportunity to have job in foreign companies. I believe that mastering English can help Indonesians have a better future. In my opinion, there are, at least three advantages of Mastering English, i.e. :
Firstly, helping Indonesians who have a willingness to study abroad. When we study in foreign country, we must able to speak English well. Most literatures are written in English. To communicate with people from different countries in English. We and the lecturers communicate each other in English. Then, after finishing the study, we return to our country with higher skill, more confidence, and have more experiences than people who study here.
Secondly, helping Indonesians get job easily. Actually, not only foreign companies need employees who able to speak English well, but also all big local companies need it. Especially, if we want a good position in the company, we must workhard and have a willingness to improve our English skill. Having career as a lawyer, for example, must have English skill to make the business regulation. Having good career must be followed with good salary. It is not surprising when we make a business with foreigners, we will be paid in dollar.
Thirdly, helping Indonesians have more friends from different countries. We can communicate easily with foreign people. We can share information about our culture or events. So, we can come to realize that we have more ability to get success in our future. For xample, we make friends with an Australian girl, then she invites us to her country for holiday.
So, in conclusion that mastering English can help us as Indonesians have a better future. There are three advantages of mastering English i.e. studying abroad, getting job easily, and making friends with people from different country.
