Why Speaking Proper English is Important for your Career By Exforsys on June 6, English Vocabulary Why Speaking Proper English is Important for your Career A number of studies have consistently demonstrated that those who have an advanced knowledge of the English language are much more likely to advance their careers. In addition to this, these studies have also demonstrated that a strong command of the English language will lead to higher paying jobs, more social mobility, and a great deal of social success. No matter what career you choose, whether it is Engineering or History, having a powerful command of the English language will greatly increase your odds of success. Generally, your vocabulary will need to be equal to those who are in the same career field.
Such bad habits can be very difficult to eliminate. Even if somebody later points out your mistake and you concentrate very hard to avoid making it again, the bad habit is often stronger.
Every time you write or speak with mistakes, you reinforce those mistakes. As you repeat your mistakes, you develop bad habits. If you make a lot of mistakes, practice becomes a harmful activity because it teaches you more bad English than good English. Some learners make so many mistakes that the more they practice, the worse their English becomes!
The only way you can learn something from your mistakes is when somebody corrects them. If you say an incorrect sentence, and if someone points out the mistake and tells you the proper way to express your meaning, then your knowledge of English increases. You may therefore think that speaking or writing with mistakes is not so bad because it is a chance to fix your errors and learn something new.
Unfortunately, this is true only if you have a checker — a competent person who will correct your mistakes. My summary was about Star Wars: A New Hope and I decided to put my teacher to a little test: Many teachers especially non-native speakers are simply incompetent.
The reason is simple: You could get some kind of private tutor, but how much would it cost to have him correct everything you write and say in English?
This category includes any native speakers who are not your teachers: Can they be effective checkers? In general, native speakers will not correct your mistakes! As long as they can understand what you mean, they will completely ignore all your mistakes in grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation.
For example, the message below is perfectly understandable and could easily pass uncorrected: I am want make question for knowing how to able speak English proper way. I need of a internet learn book for American word of slang.
I will thank your help for life. As a case in point, I get a lot of e-mail from English learners. I love English and I like correcting mistakes. But I almost never point out mistakes.
Because if I did, it would often take me 10 more minutes to reply to a message. Correcting mistakes requires not only great English skills. To correct someone, you have to pay attention to what he says or writes.
If something is wrong, you have to think of a better way to say it. Correction takes time and effort. Many native speakers will be afraid of an awkward social situation and when you make a mistake, they will pretend that nothing has happened.
Besides, even if you had a checker who gave you great feedback whenever you spoke or wrote an English sentence, you would have another problem: If someone gives you a list of 20 mistakes that you made in the last 10 minutes, what are you going to do with it?
There are ways to do it — the best one is probably to add the corrected versions of your sentences to your SRS and review them many times — but this certainly takes time and effort. And you need a system for putting that feedback in your head. We have said that when you practice, you reinforce your mistakes, and that you cannot rely on feedback from other people.
We have also said that you need practice to learn English. There is a simple solution to this paradox: Before you conclude that we have completely lost it, please read what one of us Michal Ryszard Wojcik has written about his experiences: It is close to the truth that I have never written an incorrect English sentence.We write the date in English in different ways.
The most common way in British English is to write the day of the month first, then the month (starting with a capital letter) and then the year. Strunk & White: The Elements of Style.
