English is, undoubtedly, the global language. One of every four people in the world can communicate in English. English is the official language of 85% of world organizations. It is the language of political meetings, the language of international conferences, the language of technology, commerce, banking, tourism, most research papers, reference books, terminology, economics, and international business. It is the language of the most widely-circulated newspapers, T.V. programs, movies, airlines, multinational corporations, and foreign labor. 90% of the material available on the internet is in English. What made English the most powerful language in the world? This study will explore the historical, political, economic, technological and cultural factors that made English a global language in the past and present. What does the future of English look like?
