  • 2.   10  Reasons  To   Boost  Your  English   In  2014:     #1   Social   Media   The  “normal”  internet  has  been  largely   overtaken,  in  our  daily  online  habits,  by  social   media  pla:orms  like  Facebook,  Twi=er,   LinkedIn,  Google+,  and  Pinterest.       By  and  large  the  common  language  used  on   these  pla:orms  is  English.  So  if  you  want  to   tap  into  the  global  social  buzz,    you’ve  got  to   speak  the  lingo.      
  • 3.   10  Reasons  To   Boost  Your  English   In  2014:     #2   E-­‐commerce   Looking  for  a  specialty  lens  for  your  DLSR   camera?  A  rare  book?  Made-­‐to-­‐order  jeans?     If  it  exists,  you  can  find  it  and  buy  it  online.  But   oXen  the  smaller  or  more  niche  e-­‐commerce   sites  are  only  available  in  English.     Don’t  let  that  be  a  barrier  to  your  digital   treasure  hunYng:  English  will  enable  you  to   search  and  find  exactly  what  you  seek.

  • 5.   10  Reasons  To   Boost  Your  English   In  2014:     #4   Global   friendship   and   romance   As  with  so  many  other  areas  of  our  lives,   personal  relaYonships  have  gone  digital.  Online   pla:orms  dedicated  to  meeYng  new  people  –   whether  just  for  friendship  or  for  romance  –   have  exploded  in  popularity.       So  if  you’re  looking  for  new  friends,  or  for  love,   why  limit  yourself  to  searching  within  your  own   language?  Switch  to  English,  and  the  world  is   your  oyster.
