There are many different reasons for learning a second language. Many people learn it because they immigrate to different countries and English is needed there for communication, business or educational purposes. Not surprisingly, some people study English without an important reasons as in today’s world it is very common to be able to communicate in more than just one language. Nowadays learning global languages like English started playing a crucial role in education and the question how to teach them effectively arises more and more among the teachers and second language scholars.

The cleverly named article title – ‘ Gotta Catch ‘em All’ within seconds brought me back to my childhood as I immediately remembered as the catch-phrase of the ‘craze’ and ‘phenomenon’ that was ‘Pokémon’. As described throughout this article the phenomenon of Pokémon began as a cartoon TV show foe children and soon snowballed into card games, magazines, toy dolls, computer games, all the while creating a larger consumer market and children who watched the cartoon went on to buy the cards and exchange with their friends, thus creating awareness of the product and increasing product sales.

The paper also shows several reasons why constituencies such as creative writers, tutors, English speakers and even immigrants who may be learning English should study the history of this language. Why the Philologists We Should Care About Language History. Studying the history concerning the English language may be of paramount importance in the contemporary world.
