It has been estimated that 1.5 billion of the 6 billion people in the world speak English as a first, second or foreign language.
Non-native speakers outnumber native speakers by about 4 to 1 and most of them have learnt English not so that they can go shopping in London or drink tea with English friends, but because English as an International Language (EIL) is the world's lingua franca. How do Spaniards communicate with Arab, Chinese or Japanese businessmen or tourists? In English, of course.
