Why is English so popular!
Today, English is considered
to be the most widely spoken language. Indeed, English
is spoken today in almost all countries of the world,
it became compulsory to study in our country. Do you know English?
Hardly anyone knows!
And hardly anyone knows and can
even imagine that when the English language was the
language for mobile, even in the UK. But, nevertheless, it
is so. In order to understand why English has become so popular, moreover, demand should dip into history.
As English was formed?
As English was formed? Scientists
believe that English language education started in 5 century
AD. It was during this period that the island, which
are modern Britain, moved tribes of angles, Saxons and Jutes. Over time, the Islands formed four separate kingdoms-Northumbria, Mercia, Kent, Wessex. That is why the basis for English formed Wessex dialect.
Formation of the language!
The formation of the English
language until the year 1066. At this time the
territory of Great Britain came the Normans who introduced into
use in French. The French language spoken at Court, conducted in French in school, speak in French high society. While English was the language of mobile. This situation persisted until the 14th century, when the French language was supplanted by English. But the French managed to leave a significant mark, and today in modern English can be found quite a few French words
The dialect of the English language!
At that time
there were many dialects. But I wonder what literary
English began to develop from the London dialect, which was
conditional language Czerny and petty criminals. Of course, we are talking about the old English language, on which were written the first English works. Their author was John Chaucer.
New England language in the 16th century!
16 century New England began to develop language. The
novoanglijskom language Shakespeare wrote, but the modern Englishman is unlikely
to be able to read the original of Shakespeare's sonnets, to such an extent New England language is not similar to modern English. With regard to modern English, we study the classical, literary English. That's only if you arrive in London, you can hardly understand it. The fact that indigenous Londoners speak "cockney"-the London dialect, which differs considerably from the classical English. But back to the spread of English in the world. It all started with the colonization of America, because America was the largest colony of England. Colonization policies and has left its mark in India, where today the English language is considered to be the second State language. The British fought a fairly strict policy concerning the colonies and tried to subdue as many countries as possible. The result is today's most popular English language.
On the average stage!
The initial phase is complicated
due to the need of mastering the use of
articles, confusing Rules of reading and writing, unaccustomed Phonetics. Is
not in English and clear rules on what syllable to put emphasis. However, learn to speak English "somehow" is much easier than in German or in French. English grammar "for beginners" allows you to quickly learn how to build phrases (pay attention to the questions) and navigate the simple texts. In the middle stage, many are lost in the face of English verb tenses.

world’s most popular language. There are more than 300
