There is no official definition of "global" or "world" language but it refers to a language that is learned and spoken internationally not only by the number of its native and second language speakers, but also by its geographical distribution, and its use in international organizations and in diplomatic relations. English is universal language. It is the world’s second native language, the formal language in 70 countries. 150 million people use English fluently as a foreign language. English is also the language of international air traffic control, and the principal language of world publishing, science and technology . Should English be the global language? Should you have to know English to communicate if you are someone that lives in a place where the native language is something different? The answer is no. Everyone, in every country, in order to participate in the modern world, should learn English. Personally, I believe it is tremendously difficult to learn a new language as an adult, but in order to make the world go round, we all should know more than one language. But why English is a “global” language? Reason number one is war. The 100 Years War, that’s when the Normans invaded Britain, they spoke French then the English won so they took back English language and they said “we are going to speak English in Parliament”. Reason number two is migration. The Anglo-Saxons brought vocabulary, that mixed with the Romans and the Latin language, and became Old English. More migration happened, like the Black Plague, the Industrial Revolution, World War I, World War II, tons of people were migrating to English speaking countries, primarily England and the US, with those historical moments. Reason number three is the Black Plague. Millions of people migrated from southern Europe to the north, to England, where they needed to learn English. So many different accents mixing together, from different languages and different immigrants inside England, all within a short period of time, the actual pronunciation of English was changing. When so many people died in England from the Black Plague, is other people from outside England moved in to make up for the shortage of labor, and wages and work conditions , were better in England, at that time then in other places. Between 1350, when the Black Plague was over, and 1550, 65,000 people moved into England and about one in every 100 people was an immigrant. Reason number four is religion. In 597 A.D., Christianity came on over to Britain and we gained new vocabulary. Religion plays a role in the English language literature, like the King James Bible. Reason number five is literature. William Shakespeare was hugely influential in the 17th century . Reason number six is science. The Scientific Revolution had a big part in England and physicist like Robert Hooke, Robert Boyle, Isaac Newton and Francis Bacon all contributed to scientific research in English. Reason number seven is the Industrial Revolution. Machines were created by English inventors, the manuals, instructions, directions were written in English. People were flooding in England and United States to work with these machines, where they needed to learn English to do their job.
