Why is English so popular?

Elfresh
So why in the world is English so popular? Knowing the answer on this question can influence the way you perceive the information and how quickly you get results. No matter how easy this question might seem it can be misleading. Perhaps the reason for that is that Britain and America are highly developed countries, which leads to spreading their official language. Moreover the economical techniques, with the help of which they sell English are beyond any expectations: huge higher educational establishments, such as Cambridge, Oxford, Harvard produce tons of literature and DVDs to satisfy the demand.

In addition I’d like to remind you that English is so widespread since it happened so historically. Who conquered half of the world and made it its provinces and colonies? Oh, I guess the British? Who invented the Internet? the Americans? Who produced first computers and still is one hundred steps ahead of the whole planet in high technologies? The answers speak for themselves. We are tangled in this World Wide Web. Is this brainwashing?



Thus little by little English became an international language. Seems to me somebody planned to possess the whole world, well, Americans and British did it to some extent – through their language.

Therefore, in order to be up to date, successful in one’s career and intelligent nowadays everyone is expected to know English, and this is the part when you should pay great attention - English is our pass to the world of universal opportunities.

I think English so popular because England for many years was the owner of the colonies.
So I choose first.

Because many countries produce a good technique, more and more people in Internet use a Google translator, and it is not so easy. For example, Italiano much easier.

I study Italiano and speak on it much easy for me.
Of course, I know English much better :) but even with a small vocabulary of Italian words to speak on it (for me) more simple.

The question is to what extent you know a language and for what purposes you need it. To speak a foreign language almost flawlessly, knowing a lot about grammar and using various words and set expressions in any language is not as easy as knowing a spoken form of the same language, to my mind. But everybody has his (her) own opinion.

Many men, many minds.
