Will the English Language remain a Lingua Franca

Filed under: English Language — derryvickers @ 10:40 pm

I used to think that the world wide use of English was because it is the language of the US but here is an article that suggests that English will be used as a lingua franca for many years to come independent of the US adoption.

BTW the US’s second language is Spanish

And the author thinks that leaving the EU will not bring about an automatic change to say French.
