1. English is very important in term of study:
No matter what country we are in, we have to study because studying is for everyone. Suppose you have enrolled your son in an English medium school, but if he does not know a little English from the beginning, then he may have a problem. Because the demand of English medium school is high nowadays, English is more prevalent in today’s world.
In my own experience I am an Indian and I am from West Bengal, My mother tongue is Bengali. I studied in Bengali medium school from a young age but when I went to study for M. Sc. Out of West Bengal then I found out that the university is completely English medium. Whether its class and out of class I have to talk to the teacher in English, even my friends are talking to me in English.
In this situation English cut me off like poison. As much as I want to get away from English, the English revolve around me. I thought I would leave M. Sc. And leave the university and come home but after a lot of hard work I learned English and complete M. Sc. Degree. So English is very important to me because there was a time where I was very scared of English but now that fear has totally vanished.
2. English opens more job opportunities:
English is a common language that people from different countries. To communicate each other from different countries people use English. Via English one person communicate to any another person from any countries.

So if we want to get a job in any company we need to know English first because we will be interviewed through English. If we don’t have weakness of English then we can easily get any job.
In my own experience this is a part of my part-time job that I am writing. I got this job because I know English and I can write this article. No matter how far we study, if we don’t know English, we will be stuck everywhere because English is the medium through which we can make entry in any job.
Consider that you got the job just so what happens when your boss gives you some tusks which you have to deal outside your country then you get stuck without knowing English. Assuming you are Indian and the person with whom you deal is African. That person know English and African and you only know Hindi then what you will do? So we need to know English first, whether it be gov. or non-gov. job.
