For the past several years, citizens of non English speaking countries cannot travel to English speaking countries no matter how they wish to because simply they cannot speak their language. This shows that learning English is essential if you wish to go around the world for travel business or education purposes. It cannot be denied that these days most countries whose language is other than English adopted it to be their second language with the following benefits.
One is for business purposes. China and Korea alone find learning English as their way to establish or expand their business in English speaking countries. Of particular concern are the big businessmen who desire to conquer other countries with their enterprise. Their desire to make it big in the business sector cannot be realize without learning English language first. It is also a reality that when you attend business conferences outside your country the medium of instruction is in English, meaning it is the only language that neutralizes the understanding of participants with divers language.

For instance, if you are a nurse in your own country who wish to seek employment in the United States or United Kingdom cannot do so because of communication barrier. For practical reason, they cannot hire you no matter how skillful you are in your field because of the belief that you cannot deliver quality work without speaking.

Chinese, Koreans, Japanese, and Russians pay huge amount just to learn the language. These countries actually hire foreign English teachers to teach their students English. Some even go to other countries after learning the basics in their home country to hone their writing and speaking aspects. This was revealed by some Koreans in one forum in the internet where they claim they really want to be taught the language well thus they travel to other countries who speak the language.
Others learn it from the classroom setting as part of their curriculum. The language is taught in a simpler manner though different from those who are native speakers. Those who are comfortable with self learning may do it using the internet. This applies to individuals who are highly motivated and who wish to learn speaking part only.
