English is the most widely spoken language in the world, but notwith the most native speakers; Mandarin is. English has over 2billion speakers, and only about 400 million native speakers. Answer: It is very difficult to establish the number of people in the worldwho can speak English. If English l…anguage accounts only for thenative speakers it would be restricted to native speakers inEngland.The politicization of the English language by the Imperialpower during the colonial era has led to a language mix in pidgin,Hindish, Americanization, and so on. A distinction must be made between native speakers and speakers of the language. Answer: Well, I'm amazed at how people consider 'English' as AmericanEnglish. I'll have you know that English is derived from a Germaniclanguage, and has slowly adapted into the modern English we knowtoday. For the last time it is ENGLISH as in ENGLAND. Seriously,America has nothing to do with it, they just couldn't be botheredto conjure up their own language so removed the U's (addedapostrophe for distinction) in several words to claim it as theirown. Yes, even more people in China and India have more Englishspeakers than in the US, so where does America stand in this? Answer: Language continually changes, no matter what country it islocated in. People who believe that Americans changed English andBrits kept it "the same" are in error. It evolved in England sincethe 17th Century just as it evolved in America, or the Britishwould speak the English of Shakespeare. Furthermore, this answercites spelling as a change, which is not technically a significant part of language.] Answer: 328-350 million native speakers, in the UK, US, Canada, Australiaetc. (those numbers are not right. America is 310 million, the UKis 70 million, Canada is 37 million, and there alone is 417million) Up to 500 million total speakers and has by far the most countrieswith English as an official language.

American English is more popular. Maybe if you combine India and Britain, you have more British Speakers, but American English is still more popular. In fact, English evolves like everything. From British we moved west to California, the last Frontier in the English Language. From here, we move o…ut to the world in an advanced state care of Google, and Silicon Valley Venture Wonderlands and the San Francisco Bay Area, and ok, L.A. From this advanced state we turn to what I call International English, which no one seems to want to talk about. Regardless, English is dynamic. I believe American English is more popular. But be careful. This will change over time. The essential is to learn the grammar. That will not change too fast. The rest of your learning, with sounds and idioms, should wait until you arrive in your destination English land. For now, study the grammar! The reading, the writing. And trust me. Listen to the far west American Speech. That is Standard American English. Thankks! Orcas are cool ( Full Answer )

The main reason a large number of people speak English is the former widespread reach of the British Empire. India, Australia, China, Canada, and the United States were at one time largely or entirely under British control. Thus both native residents and British colonists used English in those areas…. Due to the success of these former colonies, English has been adapted as a second language in many countries, even if they have no former ties to the British Empire, for trade, diplomatic, and scientific reasons.

Very many people speak English in Lesotho, as it is one of the two official languages of the country, the other being Sesotho. English is in common use in the country, being the language of government, commerce, education and the judiciary. English is the language used to teach children in primary… schools, from the ages of 9/10 , and then this continues on through secondary and tertiary education. In contrast, Sesotho is taught/available as a separate subject. Although the mother tongue of Lesotho is Sesotho, English has become so widely adopted and incorporated into the language of the country that, it has been said, . "Listen to anybody in Lesotho speak Sesotho and you'll soon realise that everybody is speaking a mixture of English and Sesotho and Afrikaans." ( Full Answer )
Well, even though this question is simple, the answer is impossibly complex. There have been studies done to attempt to determine the answer you seek but it is not really feasible to attempt to guess the number of fluent English speakers. Because of this difficulty, the estimated number ranges from …600 million to 1.8 billion. Like I said, the numbers are not very accurate and as you can see, they are vastly different. It is a little bit easier to determine the number of native English speakers (which makes sense to assume are fluent) and the numbers are a little more close together. Wikipedia gives the number of 328 million which I, personally, believe is rather low. I have seen it anywhere from 292 million to 410 million. So it is at least those estimates because those are only for native speakers . I personally believe that the number you seek is somewhere in between 850-950 million (if you say fluent is being able to live, communicate, and succeed in an English-speaking country with no issues).

Not too many. But in the tourist areas, such as Kathmandu, Thamel, etc, the number of tourists have increased thus leading to an increase also in Nepali natives knowing a bit of english for trade, services, and for business. The further you go from the tourist cities, the less people will know, if …any, english at all. Their official language is Nepali, a differential of Hindi, but many shopkeepers and hotel managers learn basic english in the response of so many Westerners visiting for different purposes... including Everest Expeditions, where Kathmandu would be the main gateway point into the mountain.

It is compulsory in Japan to learn English in both primary and secondary school, hence many know at least the basics of English. It is also considered 'cool' in Japan to be able to speak English, much the same way that I believe it's 'cool' to be able to speak Japanese (or any foreign language fo…r that matter). This is why many tend to try not to forget their English. With English being the international language, business negotiations between countries are often done in English, and this is yet another reason why many speak English. There is no set number on how many can speak English, and in fact even those who do not know the English language may be able to understand certain words thanks to their 'katakana' alphabet, which is reserved for foreign words that are included in the Japanese language. eg. "banana" in katakana still means "banana", and "infomeh-shion" (this is just how it sounds in the Japanese language) means "information". ( Full Answer )

English today is probably the third largest language by number of \nnative speakers, after Mandarin Chinese and Spanish.
