THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE
English is the lingua franca across the entire globe.
English is a unifying force and increasingly plays a major role in how the world works and communicates together. Indeed, English is the most important language for business, academics, popular culture, government, and travel.
Modern English is an inherently neutral and egalitarian language—it is simple, direct, and easy to use. Today, a Russian, a Korean, and a Mexican can all carry on a conversation together—in English.
English is the earth’s bridge language and that makes it the most important tool-skill to possess in the modern world.
Nearly 1.5 billion people speak English, and approximately 80 percent of them learned it as their second language. Join us at Language Plus to study English as a second language.
