There are approximately 400 million native English speakers worldwide. Spanish and Mandarin have more native speakers, however, English is the most popular second language across the globe. This means that when you combine native English speakers with non-native English speakers, English is the most widely spoken language in the world.
Not only this, but English is the recognised native language in over 60 countries and 27 non sovereign states. Moreover, it is a major business language and the official language of major organisations such as the International Civil Aviation Organisation, the United Nations, North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and the European Union.
English is the language of science and technology, academia, aviation, diplomacy and tourism. Learning English will open up many opportunities, such as access to the best universities in the world, finding work abroad and working for a large international company.
