English: the language that crosses borders and generations
Nowadays, new technologies facilitate the learning of a new language. Using a Smartphone allows you to download apps that translate words with a single click. You may also find the most popular acronyms used around the world. For example, a term we all know,"LOL", stands for ‘Laugh out Loud.
English is one of the universal languages and has a great influence on the whole world. This language is used across all disciplines; technology, science, economics, management, literature, entertainment, and so on. Spoken in more than 60 countries, the day-to-day English is constantly evolving, giving rise to new vocabularies, grammatical forms and new ways of speaking and writing.
English also evolves through cultures: “A recent study has suggested that among students in the United Arab Emirates, Arabic is associated with tradition, home, religion, culture, school, arts and social sciences,” whereas English “is symbolic of modernity, work, higher education, commerce, economics, science and technology.” The English language is becoming more infused with the culture or group of people who speak it. In other words, the use of a language is determined or defined by the ones who are using that language.
In many industrialized countries, English is used in politics, business, and hospitality, facilitating communication with other nations. We are seeing more and more organizations that promote the hiring of bilingual employees because they can serve a larger market and create relationships. Some people also prefer traveling to countries that use English as a second language to facilitate their stays.
