Global English – disease or cure?

I didn’t want to keep¬†this brilliant article by Vivi Bentin¬†from you (German only, sorry). It’s about the lingering question of whether we’d not all be better off if everyone spoke English.

She’s asking the right questions here: What kind of English would that be? What could you express? Which misunderstandings would occur because of the different levels of English that are being spoken?

Enjoy the read and let me know what you think!
