English is spoken at a useful level by one in every four people. By 2020, we forecast that two billion people will be using it – or learning to use it.
English is becoming a core criterion in determining employability
English changes lives. The impact of globalisation and economic development has made English the language of opportunity and a vital means of improving an individual’s prospects for well-paid employment.
Our own forecast is for double digit growth in the demand for English in a swathe of large countries such as Indonesia, Pakistan, Brazil, Mexico and Nigeria.
