Will English remain the global language in the future?

    It’s quite non anxious to say that English has been dominating the languages for a very long time. It’s dominance over other languages is bright visible and reflects a monopoly in most of the countries world-wide. No need to say that English has been a core bridge which fills the gap between the people who know no common language but English. If We consider verbal communication a country of cities and streets, English language is the highway smooth road which goes through all the countries and connects them to make a channel to pass the expression of interest in a common way, which both speaker and listener understand, irrespective of the fact that they belongs to different countries and speak different language.

      With the rise in globalisation, the English language highway will only get smoother with the time. We can also derive a fact that It’s the power and effect of English language that the globalisation has taken place. It’s very convenient to say that English language and International globalisation of import, export, culture and many business are complimentary to each other. So globalisation only gives strength to the English dominance rather than giving threat to its existence. However, the English  highway, that passes through all nations and connects them to have a happier relationship, also gives strength to other languages that falls onto the sideways of that wide lanes, or we can say it also provides considerable measures to give strength to local languages.

       We can interpret with the above passages that dominance of English and growth in internationalisation are both complimentary in nature and parallels it also lifts local languages to a level to match with the aura of English. English is like a big investor who gives platform to all the languages to come and adapt with the situation of internationalisation. So globalisation is a gain-gain business for all the languages and not suppressing the dominance of English.

    I feel English is here to stay for quite some years. Unless a language is spoken widely across the world it cannot take its place. French and Spanish have for long been considered a worthy competitor but it is unlikely that it will ever happen unless the situation changes.
