English as a way of life

Take a moment and think about the moments in your everyday life where you encounter English. Do you find English on your computer? The internet in general? Your job?  Your studies? Advertisements? Entertainment?

Now think about your job. Who speaks English at your job? Think about the people who speak a high level of English that you know, whether from work or in your social circle, particularly  in multinational companies where higher-level positions also require an advanced l of English proficiency. Your boss, for example, is required to speak with a high level of clarity and professionalism in order to ensure successful delegation of duties within the company and strategic relations outside of it.

Here are some fun facts about the use of English today:

  • 1.5 billion people all over the world speak English. As of 2019, English was spoken in 59 sovereign states and 27 non-sovereign entities where it is the official language.
  • Many languages ‘borrow’ English words. Words such as ‘marketing’ or ‘facebook’ are English words. English is also the official ‘lingua franca’ of technology, medicine, diplomacy, and manufacturing, to name a few.
  • As of January 2020 the most popular language online was English. This was 25.9% of internet users. Chinese was ranked second at 19.4% share.
  • Many multinational companies have mandated English as the corporate language and more companies are expected to join them. Some examples of companies that have already done this include Nokia, Microsoft, Alcatel – Lucent, Daimler-Crysler, SAP and Airbus.
  • Over 80% of academic journals are written in English
  • About 85% of international organizations use English as one of their working languages
  • Even in countries where the official language is not English, half of the employees say that English can help them get a better salary when hired, get promoted faster, and obtain a higher salary increase.

As you can see, because of globalization and English being the lingua franca, English is being used everywhere. Some may need to learn the language to communicate on a more basic level and others may need to do so in order to climb the corporate ladder, to be up to date with the latest research and excel in their field.  Learning English is no longer just about passing exams at school. The truth is, it is now essential to broadening your perspective and horizons. It is an essential tool for life. It is a way of life.
