The English language in numbers.

English has propagated into every corner of the world. It is the language of science, media, the internet, and the world's lingua franca. Almost everyone has some understanding of English. Because English matters, we brought to you an infographic that shows some interesting stats and numbers about English. So, without further ado, let's get down to it. 

Thank you very much for reading. Please share if you think this deserves. Have a bright day :) 


  1. Definitely worth spreading to and sharing with both students and teachers. I am going to use some of the data with my pupils and also, to update my "Why is learning English important" presentation.

  2. This is really worth sharing. English is considered as a Universal Language, it is used to communicate to natives when you are visiting other countries.

    Learning English can be difficult per person, so I want to share as well a community where you can get an English Tutor who can help and teach you English from the basics to the most advanced.
    That community is called TUTOROO. They connect tutors and students for an in-person language lessons. You can select a tutor you want and the team will assist you all the way. And I can guarantee that their tutors are skilled and qualified.

Thanks to linguists the world is a better place now, many daunting problems that existed for centuries have been solved because now we have a better understanding of language and language-related issues. in this article, you will see, in full-length, the contributions of linguists to the modern world. And you are going to see that it's a disgrace to confine a linguist's job to just learning languages. 
Let me just give you some examples before we break things down in more detail. A linguist's job could involve explo…

What linguists know that other people don't.

Studying languages is a privilege. When you analyze language and everyday speech you start to realize that there is an astonishing amount of wonder in this system that we take for granted. Linguists questioned the obvious, which is language, and got answers that forever changed mankind’s understanding of Language and human nature. In this article, you will see what linguists know that is not so evident to other people. So let's see what we've got. We all speak one language. One of the main discoveries of modern linguistics is that it made us aware that all the languages we speak are similar in astonishing respects; they manifest the same pattern, follow the same rules, they are learnt in exactly the same way, and that all the differences are only superficial. So, in a sense we all speak the same language. This was captured by Chomsky in an excellent metaphor in an excellent book of his titled Language and Mind in which he says that if a Martian scientist, somebody with a diffe…
