Global English (1)


Most of the people doing business in the industrialized world can speak English to some extent.  Of course, some of them speak English quite fluently and others may not.
In fact many of them use "broken" English to communicate.  Perhaps they have some grammar issues, such as confusing past and present tenses (very common mistake among non-native speakers)

However, even with these mistakes and even when they forget to use the articles (a, the, an) properly, they are still able to communicate their ideas, to express what they feel and think.  They may even have some pronunciation problems, but for the most part, this doesn't seem to get in the way of saying and expressing what they want to express.  They have confidence and show it.

English is now the global language, "broken" or otherwise.  Each of these countries using English, speak it basically their own way.  Of course English is English, however, it will sound different, depending on what country you find yourself in.                           (V.C)
