The English language is considered as a universal language, mainly because it is the most spoken language worldwide.
Through out history, people have had to communicate to each other, whether it be for business, for hunting, or for fighting… From the very beginning of human civilization it has always been the main international language used, originally established for the dominant civilization; the Latin language was expanded by the Roman Empire, the French language became popular for the Napoleon conquests, and finally the English language from the UK expansion and the incursion of USA as the first world power, and it’s basically through all the conquests, the commerce, the religion, the education and the technology that English has became the first language worldwide.
One of the reasons why it’s the universal language is because it’s the ‘business language’. For example if a company is dealing with a foreign company with a different mother tongue, they will use the English, the universal language to communicate to each other.
English is the main language of these countries where there is lots of languages spoken, like in India where more than 700 languages are spoken by their local people.
English is also one of the most studied language all across the world, most of the countries teach it as a second language from primary school.
As per the statistics, it said that the English language is one of the easiest languages to learn, if we compare it with languages like Chinese, German, French and even Spanish.
