Today's education system generally requires separate books, workbooks, audio and of course, a teacher, which just makes learning impractical. Learners cannot have the teacher follow them around everywhere; they cannot always take their heavy books and workbooks with them. On the other hand, people who speak at least one foreign language earn more, handle difficulties more easily and they can even choose from many opportunities in their lives. So, certainly, they will have better opportunities if they learn English. Their knowledge will last for a lifetime, all they have to do is to practice 5 minutes a day.
