The Necessity of Learning English

 We need to learn English because we live in a global village. There is no alternative to learning English to lead a decent life and to prepare ourselves for global challenges. Statistics show that 350 million people speak English as a first language and another 300 million use it as a second language. It is the official or semi-official language in more than 60 countries and of many international organizations.
Today more than 80% of all information in the world’s computer is in English. For many reasons, English has achieved the prestige of being global language. English has become the only medium for international communication. Now- a- days not only for international purposes but also for national reasons English is a must. When we look for any good job, advertisements often ask for proficiency in English. The electronic transfer of information regarding banking, financial activities and transaction of business-all are done through English language. We can easily see how English is necessary in every sphere of our lives. Bangladesh is a nation with a bright future, but lack of proficiency in English often appears to be a key hurdle. So, a nation- wide awareness needs to be established by the government to emphasize the necessity of learning English. If proper awareness is created, Bangladesh will reach the optimum levels of their potentials and thus can overcome language barriers.

A Book Fair 

(Paragraph and Short composition)

A book fair is a special type of fair where books are the main attraction for all class of people. And the main thing about a book fair is not sale but display of books on different subjects by different writers. Now- a- days a book fair has become very popular. It has created a sense of interest for books amongst the general mass. Normally it is held in a field or premises. Recently I got an opportunity to visit a book fair. It was originated by Bangla Academy. Hundreds of pavilions were set up. There were a huge number of book on miscellaneous subject of different age. All sorts of books- fictions, text books, dramas, children books, reference books, novels etc were displayed. I purchased some books of my own choice. Some stalls were also found to sell snacks and cigarettes and thus to pollute the premises. I took some refreshment here. A book fair becomes crowdie especially in the evening. Both male and female customers gather at a book fair. The writers also visit the fair regularly. Seminars and cultural programmers are also held. A book fair reminds us that books are our best companions. They are always our sides when we are in danger. The change our outlook on life and widens our domain of knowledge. It is books which help us to forget jealousy, malice and superstition. Again we get these best friends at a cheaper rate from a book fair. Many novice writers can start their career from a book fair. It was a pleasant experience for me and I think a book fair is very important for the enlighten section of people. So, it should be organized more and more for the betterment of our future life.
