IMPORTANCE OF ENGLISH
  1. ¿what is English?

    Annotations:

    •  The english language, as its name says, is the official language of England, the country in which it arises, As history progressed, and as England conquered numerous territories inside and outside Europa, the English language would become one the most widely spoken languages in the world: territories such as Wales, Scotland and Ireland (within Europe), the United States, Jamaica, Canada (in America), South Africa and many regions of Oceania would accept it as an official langauge, obviously with variations in vocabulary, pronunciation, and accent. It is also the official language in countries like India, which is very striking if we consider that in Asia there is no other territory that has it as its central languages. This is due India and the spread that the withdrawal of the English presence in the region. English-2 in all the aforementioned regions, the English langauge covers an endless number of basic needs that are to allow the inhabitants of the region to communicate, as well as to establish the official language in wich texts are written, government documents are written, etc. Im some of them it is the naturally original language while in others it was imposed with greater or lesser force. A curios fact to keep in mind is how some languages have taken many elements from English: thus, languages such as Irish can have a metting point with English despite being of two different branches, Celtic and Anglo-Saxon respectiavely.  
    1. The importance of English as a world languge

      Annotations:

      • In recent times, specially since the late nineteenth century and throughout the twentieh century, English has progressively become the most widely used language in the world. Thus, it has replaced languages such as French or Italian, even German, wich were traditional is some scientific or artistic fields. Here globalization has been of great relevance as a means througth wich English has grown infinitely. The phenomenon of globalization has contributed greatly to making English the most important and neccesary language today, being understood as the language of the dominant countries worldwide (especially the United States and England). Through cultural consumption (films, series, music) and also from political, diplomatic, and economic spheres, English has been advancing on the native languages of each place, occupying from small places with colloquial or circumstantial words to allowing idioms to be adopted Abstract concepts, pharses and pharses where the population does not speak of fully master English. Thus, today it is essential to train in the level of English not only for work reasons (having a good level of English is undoubtedlhy a good gateway to better jobs) but also to comunicate, to be able to access greater knowledge and information, to be update,ect.
      1. Criticims of the presence of English as a world language

        Annotations:

        • From many places, a critical view of the phenomenon of English is made because it is understood as one more invasion of the part of the most powerful countries to those with less powe. It is even pointed out that many times the local and native languages of the other parts of the world are more complex that English itself and that this speaks of much more elaborate cultures than the Anglo-Saxon. On the other hand, recognition is requested of other languages that are slowly growing, such as Chinese or Spanish. Finally, many theorist demand that languages thar have been lost due to the impressive invasion, revived and recovered, for example the American and African languages.
