Over the past 600 years, English has grown from a language of few speakers to become the dominant
language of international communication. English as we know it today emerged around 1350, after
having incorporated many elements of French that were introduced following the Norman invasion
of 1066. Until the 1600s, English was, for the most part, spoken only in England and had not extended
even as far as Wales, Scotland or Ireland. However, during the course of the next two centuries,
English began to spread around the globe as a result of exploration, trade (including slave trade),
colonization, and missionary work. Thus, small enclaves of English speakers became established and
grew in various parts of the world. As these communities proliferated, English gradually became
the primary language of international business, banking and diplomacy.
Currently, about 80 percent of the information stored on computer systems worldwide is in English.
Two-thirds of the world’s science writing is in English, and English is the main language of
technology, advertising, media, international airports, and air traffic controllers. Today there are more
than 700 million English users in the world, and over half of these are non-native speakers,
