English is the de facto language of business. Over 360 million people use English as a first language, and half a billion people speak it as a second language. This indicates the remarkable success of English as the lingua franca of business, travel and international relations. The relative ease with which English can be learnt and the soft power of American culture mean that it dominates world communication.
In addition, many people believe that English provides opportunities for better employment and improved lives.
On the other hand, its dominant influence has led to claims of linguistic imperialism, and provoked resistance to the spread of English.
