There are about 7.000 languages which used almost 1000.000.000 native speaker in the world, very big number. We cannot master all languages, can we? So how if everyone speak in different languages? Of course we cannot understand each other. We need a language to communicate with others, which can be understood. We could use English because English has become an international language, it is very important for us to master English.
There are many education resources in English that have not translated yet in Indonesia. If someone cannot understand what it is, will be very poor. When the other students busy with their international resources that quite complete, those who cannot understand English still just used their blunt books. It is not good for student development. They should learn English in order to be foremost.
Then, Indonesia is a beautiful country, where has beach, mountain, river, and the other beauty nature. We cannot tell about the beauty of Indonesia to the world if we use Bahasa. As we know, tourism can be one of the biggest contributor to state revenue, so tourism has to be one of the concerned thing. English will help us to promote this potency, to attract tourist from the other country come to Indonesia.
We also know, work competition has become something high and higher then. Since 1 January 2016, ASEAN Economic Community in Indonesia have been enacted. The consequence is Southeast Asia will become a unitary region market and production base. With the unity market and production base, the flow of services, investment, large amounts of capital and skilled labor become no barrier from one to another in the region of Southeast Asia. If you decide to be just an ordinary person, your day will be hard. You could be defeated by other Indonesian laborer, morover those who come from another country. People from another country, if they life in Indonesia usually could speak English, so they can communicate about their work skill well, will become more value to them. We must not be lose in our own country, shameful, right? So, beside should work hard in every conditions, we should master English too.
English becomes important language. Many resources in English have not yet translated in Indonesia, there are many potency of tourism in Indonesia that should promoted using English, then we should not be defeated in our own country. So, it is very clear that mastering English have to be one of our priority.
