Why the World is Speaking English - : A Sideways Look, Hardback Book

Why the World is Speaking English - : A Sideways Look Hardback


Two revolutions are happening now in the 21st century.

One is the explosion in cross-world communication and travel.

The other is the acceleration of English as a world language.

Why the World is Speaking English gives facts, opinions, speculation and observations on the growing use of English, its creation, growth and spread, strengths and controversies, competitive advantages, cost benefits, and suggests that now is probably a ripe time for a world language. It can inform, provoke, infuriate and amuse readers, but it is very readable and relevant to the times we live in.

A must-read for anyone interested in English, languages, controversies, education or communications.
