why do we learn english?  go with the fashion or decorate yourself?
neither is it.
it is necessary of current situation for many english learners, involving me. with economy globalized, culture mingling and intercommunication among world is more and more frequent. under this background, language as culture symbol is extremely important. just only do you know a kind of  language, you can master its culture of that country. it is a platform.  maybe,someone would ask why it is english not other language. with this period of history development, UK & USA dominates the world economy. it is a undoubted fact . so, we must respect fact. of course, this situation is changed with history development.
To us, english is a key. if you are scholar, you will suck nutrition of reading froeign information directly. if you are businessman, you will capture the business information of knowing froeign data firstly. if you are jobseeker, you will succeed easily.
as for attacking chinese by english, they are fikes. lin yu tan, gu hong min, qian zhong chu etc. they are polyglots. on the countary, they dont forget chinese and chinese culture.

Don't worry about it, we learn English just for touch the world better. In fact, I consider no matter which language can be more substantial and have more vital force than Chinese, including English. Chinese is a language accumulated for several thousand  years, has the simplest grammar, unparalleled connotation and express ability and the largest number of speakers, she will never ever be superseded by any other languages. The wide use of  English in the world just due to several English speaking countries are weathy, their economy and culture are prosperous now and hence English can extend to the whole world. Chinese also can do this with our country's flourish. So all we must do is to strengthen our country.

English is just a tool, and with this tool we can read tho foreigners website and know the culture much better, however we can not contact them without knowing their language. But if our country is developed enough they will learn Chinese, and maybe at that time we will not necesary to learn English any longer.

English is not a tool it's a way of life~
The same can be said with any other language~

If you only see language as a tool to utilize then you are missing out on the beauty of the languages~
