Would you mind moving over?
We need to make more room here.
You see, I just read that last year we added 81 million people to Planet Earth.
Welcome To Planet English
Most of these 81+ million babies were not born in the US, UK, Canada, Ireland or Australia.
But many will learn to speak their language.
Already, 1.75 billion people speak English.
China has 1.4 billion and India has 1.3 billion.
So if English was a country, it would be the most populous (translation: it would have the most people).
If a sample of 100 citizens of Planet Earth were in the same room, 25 could talk to each other.
And the conversation is growing!
According to the British Council, 1 billion people are currently learning English.
(And according to Mr. Vig, if they all go to the British Council and spend their time memorizing definitions and rules, in a few decades there will be 1 billion old people still trying to learn English.)
Let’s Upgrade To The Bullet Train
It’s a new world.
You want to live there.
You’ve already departed from the familiar shores of your old world.
But it’s been a long journey.
And you want to know when you will arrive.
And you want to know how to arrive sooner.
Perhaps I can help…
Next week I’m going to share a powerful new method with you.
It’s called “sequencing.”
