A few facts about English

The English language is part of the Indo-European language family. The foundation of the English language was brought to England by Germanic settlers from northwestern Germany in 500 CE. The English alphabet uses Latin letters. Modern English started developing during William Shakespeare’s time. Languages that have influenced the English vocabulary include Latin, German, French, Spanish, Italian, Greek, Arabic, Indian and the Aztec language Nahuatl, among others.

English is one of the most widely used languages in the world today. There are around 380 million native English speakers worldwide. There are also many people who speak English as their second language, as English is taught as a second native language or first foreign language in many countries. It is estimated that there are between 500 million and 1.2 billion people around the world who primarily speak English, and this number continues to increase.

In addition to the UK and the USA, there are 114 other countries where English is the main spoken language or one of the main spoken languages. These countries include Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, South Africa, India, Singapore, Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya and many countries in the Caribbean.

English is the official language of most international organisations, even though many organisations use additional official languages as well. English became the lingua franca during the 20th century and, as a result, many languages have been influenced by the creation of (pseudo) anglicisms.
