A Postcard from London
Non native speakers of English now outnumber native speakers by three to one.
Within 10 years it's estimated that two-billion people will be studying English, and about half the world, that's some three-billion people will be speaking it. Not much of an incentive there for native English-speakers to learn other people's languages or is there?
Carol Allen's thoughts from London.
