The importance of learning English cannot be overstated in an increasingly interconnected and globalized world. For the millions of people who travel the world from non-English-speaking countries, learning to communicate in English is important to enter and ultimately succeed in mainstream English speaking countries. Working knowledge of the English language can create many opportunities in international markets and regions. It is the most spoken official language in the world and the primary language used in international affairs. The English language has official status even in nations where it is not the primary spoken language.
English is indisputably the primary language of global trade and commerce.
