Знание иностранных языков – это жизненная необходимость? / Is the knowledge of foreign languages a life necessity today?

I think that the future of our world is in the hands of foreign language teachers, translators and interpreters.

Learning foreign language is definitely important nowadays. To start with, if you want to become a successful person, you must be able to speak at least one foreign language, because international business and diplomatic relations are conducted in principal languages. There are six world languages that mainly play a key role in the world economic and political systems; they are English, Spanish, French, Russian, Chinese and Arabic. They are recognized as the official languages of the UNO.

Although English is a number one language, now such languages as Russian and Chinese are also common. It is the result of the highly developed economics and the appearance of these countries on the world scene.

In spite of the fact today`s contradictions in the sphere of economics and defence among the power countries have acquired a dramatic character, they have the same traditions and culture and Russia is not an exception.

So, I wish the whole world went on studying Russia not as a potential enemy but as a real friend.
