Maybe you thought it was more prevalent or perhaps you didn’t realize that it was such a popular language. Well, to be honest, if you think about it in terms of international business, English may be the most commonly spoken language. It really makes a difference when you think about why people might need to learn English.

Altogether, then, this makes English the most popular language on Earth—which is why it may be the most important language to know if you want to succeed in international business.
Perhaps nearly one billion people speak English—in some form or another—because the United States remains a global leader in many industries. Of course, people also learn English just to move to English speaking countries (like the United States, but also the UK, of course) where they have more opportunity than they would have otherwise had in their home country.
And for those people who want to conduct business—personal or professional—taking the IELTS Exam is always a good idea. This test basically determines just how ready you might be to relate to a native in an English speaking country.
