  3. Access to relevant information and resources: A large portion of technical material on technology, such as reports, studies, tutorials, and online forums, among others, is available in English.

  4. An effective way to connect with the world: Given the advancement of telecommuting and video conferencing tools, IT professionals often collaborate and interact with teams distributed across different countries and continents. Therefore, mastering the English language is crucial for this purpose.

  5. Increases dissemination capacity: Speaking and writing in English makes it easier for IT specialists to share their knowledge with a larger audience, whether through opinion articles, blogs, or presentations.

  6. Boosts software development: English is present in many computer programs and programming languages, as well as in frameworks and libraries related to the field.
