The English language holds a special place in many nations of the world, whether as an official or joint-official language defined by law (such as in India, Ireland, or Canada), or as the sole or dominant language for historical reasons without being explicitly defined by law (such as in the US or UK). It is a co-official language of the United Nations, the European Union, and many other international and regional organizations. English accounts for at least 70% of speakers of the Germanic language branch.

English is a West Germanic language in the Indo-European language family, whose speakers, called Anglophones, originated in early medieval England. English is named after the Angles, one of the ancient Germanic peoples that migrated to the island of Great Britain. Modern English is both the most spoken language in the world and the third most spoken native language, after Mandarin Chinese and Spanish. English is also the most widely learned second language and is either the official language or one of the official languages in 59 sovereign states. There are more people who have learned English as a second language than there are native speakers. ↩︎
