Diversity of many cultures and their languages define the beauty and national pride of one country and then any changes and modifications of the language affect its structure. It is commonly said that a language of a country eqeals its identity. Nowadays it seems like everyone is learning English, and it is becoming the world´s most widely spoken language. Over the years English inarguably has reached a status of a global language and commonly is characterized as a lingua franca. It has become the language that is spoken by millions of people all over the world, as the mother tongue, as the language used for international communication and as the language learned in the millions of schools. Why has particularly English as a language become a global language? Roughly 500 million people in the world are native speakers. Another 510 million people speak English as a second language, which means that there are more people who speak English along with their native language than there are native English speakers. English became widespread because of the British Empire. Before colonizing around a quarter of the planet, Britons were the only ones speaking English, and the language was confined to the British Isles. But once they started doing trade with places like Asia and Africa, colonizing and settling around the globe, the language naturaly spread. However, it was mainly used in administration and business dealings - locals were still apeaking their native languages for the most part. But when it came to get an education, that was done in English. So English then became an elitist language of sorts, spoken by those who were educated in literature, philosophy and poetry, much like French was back when it was the most widely spoken language. The world after the first two world wars was a vulnerale and changing one. American businesses were booming and started doing trade all over the world, much like Great Britain had done in the previous century. And at the same time American culture was being exported heavily through music and film. Holywood was also booming with popular films exported worldwide. Advertisers use it all over the world in multinational markets to sell their products. But it is also the most common language used in film and music industry. Big-budget movies and favourite classic films are mostly produced in English. In music, if a band wants to become popular or famous, they will produce their work in English as well. And then there are sports - American invented sports today like skateboarding and even basketall, have an entire vocabulary in English and many of the best athletes in those fields are English-speaking - even if they have been recruited from abroad. At the same time that the USA was becoming the world´s business superpower, the internet was also invented in the USA. This created an entire lexicon for computers and technology that was invented in English. Computer keyboards are suited for writing languages using Latin alphabet, and hardware for all our smart technology uses English words that have become commonly used around the world. The world of sciennce is also dominated by English. Any serious publication must be done in English. With science and technology playing such a big role in our lives today, English won´t be going anywhere soon. Even about one third of international organizations have English as their official language and 85% of international organizations have English as at least one of their official languages. It is well known than in order to get a good job in today´s global market, speaking English is becoming a requirement more often than not. English´s position today is almost entirely due to political and economic factor as there is a close link between language and power. The USA, with its huge dominance in economic, technical and cultural terms is the driving force behind English in the world today. However, if the USA were to lose its position of economic and technical dominance, then the language loyalties of other coutries may well shift to the new dominant power. There may now be a critical mass of English speakers throughout the world which may make its continued growth impossible to stop or even slow down.
