Summary: English is now the dominant language spoken by over a billion people with nearly as many speaking English as a second language as there are native speakers. This program looks at the different contexts and countries in which the English language dominates education, pop music, advertising, and the Internet. It explores the pros and cons of this dominance and the ways in which it is actually changing the English language
