Languages at Gateway

Acquiring knowledge of global Languages is one of the main targets we in Gateway opt and work hard to provide our students with as it is the key to Global understanding. 

Learning World/Global Languages is and has always been productive as it does not just import linguistic skills, but also enables learners to explore and learn about related cultures and lifestyles. 

Learning Global/World Languages will certainly make our students globally recognized, and help them make a strong hold on the social front wherein they can effortlessly communicate with people of different origins and hence build strong connections due apt understanding of their languages.  

Furthermore, according to various studies, a longer attention span is one of the demonstrated benefits of learning more than one World/Global Language.

Last but not least, the knowledge of World/Global Languages helps students to enter our competitive world with strength, abilities, and become equipped to excel in a world where those skills are highly demanded. It would certainly enable them to step inside the context of diverse cultures and habitats, possessing intercultural understanding, language abilities and diverse knowledge of how our world functions. 

Gateway Medium of Instruction 

A medium of instruction is a language used in teaching. It may or may not be the official language of the country or territory. In Gateway English is our medium of instruction, which is not the native tongue of most of our students but is the most commonly heard, listened to, seen, read and written language in Egypt after Egypt's official language , which is the Arabic Language. 

But Why English? 

Although English may not be the most spoken language in the world, but it is the official language of 53 countries and spoken by around 400 million people across the globe. Being able to speak English is not just about being able to communicate with native English speakers, it is the most common second language in the world. If you want to speak to someone from another country, then the chances are that you will both be speaking English to do this. Thus, it is an important language because as we go anywhere across the globe, English is the most common language which people overseas can speak and write without any hurdle.

Furthermore, English is the language for research in any field be it student life or for business. It is essential to learn, read, speak and write in English. 

Also, the importance of learning English in the international marketplace cannot be understated-Learning English really can change your life as it is the dominant business  language and it has become almost a necessity for people to speak English if they are to enter a global workforce. Research from all over the world shows that cross-border business communication is most often conducted in English and many international companies expect employees to be fluent in English.

Another reason is that understanding English gives its learners access to a world of entertainment as many of the world’s top films, books and music are published and produced in English. Therefore, by learning English you will have access to a great wealth of entertainment and will be able to have a greater cultural understanding.

Last but not least learning English gives our students access to more of the Internet as according to a report by Education First, English is the language of the internet. An estimated 565 million people use the internet every day, and an estimated 52 percent of the world’s most visited websites are displayed in the English language.
