For at least the past decade, the U.S. Congress has discussed the possibility of establishing English as the official national language. While we don’t know if that will happen in the future, the fact that this has been discussed (among other reasons) convinces us that learning English in America is very important. Economic success and being socially accepted are some of the most important factors that can help immigrants to live a successful and fulfilling life in the U.S. and knowing English is key to making this happen.
If you are considering moving to the United States, USAFIS’s Customer Service Department will be happy to answer any of your questions about U.S. immigration. Learning and improving your English is so important because it is such an important part of American culture. While it’s important to understand conversations and answer questions in English, knowing English is also about learning the way people in American speak the language. The style, intonation, and usage make English a unique language, particularly for immigrants.
The staff at USAFIS reports, “The most important thing for an immigrant moving to America is to learn the language. The location of your house, your education, and how long you live in the United States won’t take the place of learning English. Every immigrant needs to know this.”
It has been proven that those who come to America with lower level English skills will likely make less money, but those with higher English skills will tend to make more money. Furthermore, the United States government reports that if you want to become an American citizen, you should know how to speak, read, write and understand the English language.
In other words, part of living in America will involve learning English. USAFIS is ready to help you with your immigration process to the U.S., so you should give them a call today.
