The Importance of Speaking English
English is one of the most widely used languages in the business world. Recent studies suggest around 375 million people speak English as their primary language and another 375 million have learned to use it as their second.
More than 80% of the information stored electronically around the world is in English. Of the 40 million Internet users around the world, 80% communicate in English because it is considered a gateway to knowledge.
MATT understands that to speak English is to invest in your future, the future of your family and the future of your country so MATT says Yes al Inglés.
