Englsih as a Global LanguageEnglish is known as a worldwide means of communication, though accents of it are different. Originally, British colonizers took English to the four corners of the globe. The first permanent English-speaking colony was established in North America in the 1600s. The Americans invented new words and soon developed a form of English that was different in a number of ways from British English. Noah Webster, called the Father of American Education, officiated these differences in his book ?The American Spelling Book? (1786) and later in his now-famous ?An American Dictionary of the English Language? (1828). There are many benefits for the individual who has a good understanding of the English language. Being fluent in this language can empower a person and open up many doors to enrich his/her life and potentially his/ her nation. Learning English can help you with international ideas and trends and can open your mind to new and better ways of living and doing things. Some major areas of society where English is needed or required are areas such as: 1. Business and commerce.

The internet has become such a huge part of the world as we know it with social networking, shopping online, and many business transactions able to be done online.
