The Morung Express: Nagaland Latest & Breaking News, Northeast & India News - English as a Global Language

The Morung Express: Nagaland Latest & Breaking News, Northeast & India News - English as a Global Language | Whether you want to learn or teach English, take an exam, study in the UK or find out about our forthcoming events, this is the place to start. | Scoop.it

Nagas, in comparison to other non-native English speakers are appreciated immensely for comprehension of English language, as a majority of the younger generation is not excessively influenced by the mother tongue. Most of the young students have grown up surrounded by media and pop culture which glamorize English. It is encouraging to see that they are gradually becoming aware of the fact that English plays a critical role in this “globalization” phenomenon. To use a stronger expression, English has indeed become the de facto language of choice for communication between different nations in the world. Richer countries have more money to spend on education, resulting in better English training. This in turn results in more economic opportunities at the global level.
