How many countries do you know where English is spoken as first
or second language?
Great Britain, Ireland,
U.S.A., Canada, Australia, New Zealand...
Thatīs not surprising, but there are more, such as Namibia, South Africa, Nigeria,
Liberia, Tanzania, India, Bangladesh... Can you think of more?... Ghana,
Malaysia, The Philippines, Hong Kong, Jamaica... And thatīs still not the end. But
let us take a break here and think about something different.
Why has English become a world language? Why is for more than 360.000.000
people English mother tongue? Well, remember the great empire Britain once had. English
was and sometimes still is the official language in those countries.
Today the influence of the United States in the world means that English is
more important than ever: In business, in travelling, in the computer world, in politics
and in pop music. English is all around us. Reason enough to study and improve your
English. But learning English is not only very important, it can also be a lot of fun.
