It’s about 600 – 700 million of people speak in English. It can be concluded, English is common language which is used by foreign speakers. It becomes a connection for each people. Whether the purpose is to communicate, to interact, or even just to greet. Take a look for this example, when the workers from Indonesia want to go for a work to Saudi Arabia, and the Indonesian don’t know how to speak Arabic, they use to choose English as the language to communicate with the Arabian. But then, how if the Indonesian don’t know English and so do the Arabian? They will have no idea how to speak each other, beside use the moving from their own bodies.
