English as A World Language
English is a language spoken by over two billion people. This classic PBS program examines the prevalence of English
in the world today and presents a historical overview of its rise. Focusing on the expansion of British Empire and the emergence of English-language mass media, it explains how widespread English usage survived Britain’s post-WWII decolonization, particularly in India and Africa. It also examines the impact of American English
, which has arguably become standard.
