Where do People Speak English in the World?

Many students do not realize the importance of English language in the world until someone shows them some empirical data.

English is not only the most spoken language in the world, but also, the one that has been “adopted” by many countries as one of their official languages.

Doing this short project students discovered how many English speakers are in the world, how many and which countries speak English as an official language and what continent has more English speaking countries.

In addition, students read about the reasons why English has become so popular and has become the international language. They also discussed different reasons to learn English and why it is so important nowadays.

As an extension they also recognized which of the so-called "emerging countries", use English as an official language and which countries were the ones who “originated” the English language.

At the end, it is important to make a visual infographics to present the results of their research to other students in the school or to parents (display, Power Point, blog ...)
