Danielle M. Villegas's curator insight, December 4, 2014 1:46 PM

I liked reading this article because I have a fascination with English being considered a dominant international language, especially in the business world. The company where I consult is one of those companies based in a non-English speaking country, but its official language is English. At first, I thought it was due to the strong American presence on the Internet, but I'm finding that it's not necessarily so. It's also not due to the emergence of former British Commonwealth (or current Commonwealth) countries. There is a huge percentage of the world that speaks English as a second language--why? Why isn't there more Chinese or Russian or Spanish or Arabic or French (or maybe there is, and I'm oblivious to it)? 

 

Take a look at this, and check out this perspective. Then tell me what you think. Is this individual correct that this is becoming more commonplace? Why do you think that is? I'm definitely curious to hear your view.
