Why Would I Learn English? Poem by Kemi Kemms

Why Would I Learn English?

Rating: 4.8


Everyone speaks English; is that true?
I love to speak in English, how about you?
My mum drives like English, my father likes English food,
My sister sings in English, our dog barks the English tune.

Going to school? No, thank you!
When I was nine I dreamt about having a band.
All the fuss about learning English …
Why necessary? I did not understand…

Although I'm older now I still don't like to learn,
But knowing English became my biggest concern,
I want to travel places I've never been before,
Meet people, order cucumber sandwiches and much more.

I watch movies without subtitles and read English books,
At foreign boys (or girls) I'd someday like to have a look
And when I grow up I will desperately look for work,
Tthen knowing English language will definitely be a perk.

It is a good poem dedicated to the English language... As a teacher of English let me correct a usage.. The natives of the English speaking countries SPEAK ENGLISH And the others like me SPEAK IN ENGLISH. Thank you for the sharing
