The Role of English in the 21st Century.
Hasman, Melvia A.
Forum, v38 n1 Jan-Mar 2000
Discusses the role of English as an international language for the last 50 years. Suggests if the pattern follows previous language trends, English may not dominate but may supplement or co-exist with other languages in the future by allowing strangers to communicate across linguistic boundaries. It may become one tool that opens windows to the world, unlocks doors to opportunities, and expands our minds to new ideas. (Author/VWL)
