Success in business nowadays is often hingedon one single important word: communication; and most of it happens in English. As the fastest-spreading language in human history, English is spoken at a useful level by some 1.75 billion people worldwide. There are close to 385 million native speakers in countries like the U.S. and Australia, about a billion fluent speakers in formerly colonized nations such as India, Nigeria, and Philippines and millions of people around the world who have studied it as a second language. Of course adopting the international language is not easy, moreover for non native speaker, but in an attempt to facilitate communication and performance across geographically diverse functions and business endeavors, companies needs to. There is no doubt that multilingualism in the corporate world is largely inefficient and can dent an organisation’s growth potential in many ways. In this age when every business is hopping on to the global bandwagon, the need to coordinate functions strictly, and working with clientele across the world has accelerated the move towards English being crowned as the official language of business. No matter where the companies geologically are. Imagine that a group of salespeople from a company’s Milan headquarters get together for a meeting. Why would you care whether they all could speak English? Now consider that the same group goes on a sales call to a company also based in Milan, not realizing that the potential customer would be bringing in employees from other locations who didn’t speak Italian. The result is that the employees of those two Italian companies may at the end wouldn’t close a deal because the people in the room wouldn’t be able to communicate. For that reason company nowadays needs an English corporate language strategy. Managers should encourage people to self-identify as global rather than local employees. It’s possible to develop a global identity, also with limited exposure to an international environment, by building an one in which employees can embrace a global English policy with relative ease. In this way, companies can improve communication and collaboration. English is not only the official language of business, however, is the second most spoken language in the world as well. This implies that a person needs to polish, foster, and develop their English speaking skills not only to enhance their prospect of getting a career break in a big organisation, however also to enhance their survival in day to day life. Beside, in the workplace Business English is considered a special branch within the general study of the English language. This is due to the use of specialized vocabulary and jargon. Having a good grasp of the English language, especially when communicating through various business platforms such as email, letters, reports, presentations, phone calls, meetings, conferences, and many others, is important in successfully building a career and a business in an international environment. One may argue that there is no difference between general English and business English; however, business English courses focus on skills applicable to the workplace, including special vocabulary that one may expect to use or encounter during specific business situations such as negotiations, business planning, conferences, meetings, etc. that occur within international trade and functional relations. Due to the fact that Business English is so important, companies require increasing numbers of their employees to have knowledge of this language. This knowledge is no longer the preserve of people in positions of responsibility; technicians who have to phone for support in another country and receptionists who receive foreign delegations also need to be able to do certain parts of their jobs in English. But why English is THE language of everybody? In fact, there may be more native speakers of Chinese, Spanish or Hindi, but it is English they speak when they talk across cultures, and English they teach their children to help them become citizens of an increasingly intertwined world. English and globalization have spread hand in hand through the world: a global language who has assisted globalization, and globalization has consolidated the global language. That process started with the dominance of two successive English-speaking empires, British and American, and continues today with the new virtual empire of the Internet riding the crest of globalization and technology. One straightforward way to trace the growing influence of English is in the way its vocabulary has infiltrated so many other languages. For a millennium or more, English was a great importer of words, absorbing vocabulary from Latin, Greek, French, Hindi and many others. During the 20th century, though, as the US became the dominant superpower and the world grew more connected, English became a net exporter of words. English is everywhere, and everywhere, English dominates. From inauspicious beginnings on the edge of a minor European archipelago, it has grown to vast size and astonishing influence. Almost 400m people speak it as their first language; a billion more know it as a secondary tongue. It is an official language in at least 59 countries, the unofficial lingua franca of dozens more. No language in history has been used by so many people or spanned a greater portion of the globe. It is aspirational: the golden ticket to the worlds of education and international commerce, a parent’s dream and a student’s misery, winnower of the haves from the have-nots. It is inescapable: the language of global business, the internet, science, diplomacy, stellar navigation. After all, what a work is English, how copious in its vocabulary, how noble in expression, how sinuous in its constructions, and yet how plain in its basic principles. A language, in short, with a word for almost everything, capable of an infinite gradation of meanings, equally suited to describing the essential meaning of mankind as to arguing about football. Thus the English language no longer "belongs" to its native speakers but to the world.
