English may not be the most spoken language in the world, but it is the official language of 53 countries and spoken by around 400 million people across the globe. It is the world's second largest native language but widely regarded as the primary language of international communication. However, being able to speak English is not just about being able to communicate with native English speakers. English speaking nations produce around 40% of total global Gross National Product (GNP), which makes it the dominant language of business. Consequently, it has become almost a necessity for people to speak English if they are to enter the global workforce from a position of linguistic strength.
Research from all over the world shows that cross-border business communications are most often conducted in English, and many international companies expect employees to be fluent in English. Basic English phrases are widely understood, even by non-English speakers, as it is the dominant language in American pop music, advertising, the arts, academia, the media, American and English movies, and television programmes worldwide. The British Council projects that by 2020 two billion people in the world will be studying English.
