almost all do now because there has to be a common language of business
research shows that white caucasion americans are a dying breed in the worlds population...hispanics especially mexicans are increasing yet it will be a mixed future generation of chinese,hispanics etc... that will dominate in the language but english will always exist among the many races...
And Spanish and Mandarin.
Almost all people do. Somali pirates know English and I can't even ******* manage to order a meal in Spanish at a Mexican restaurant.
currently, Chinese speakers outnumber English speakers roughly 6 to 1
yes but in addition to all the native english speakers in places like the uk, canada, america, nz, and Oz, think about everyone who speaks English (the language of business) as a second language. Every school age korean for instance is required to learn english. China has more english speakers (as 2nd language) than the USA has citizens.
What about Belize? They speak English there, too. I plan to retire there.
