Yes, English has turned into a global language that everyone worldwide need to learn it. It is added from childhood in syllabus. So that one get efficiency in it from the basic stage. It's like an ocean. How much ever vocabulary you learn that much more will be there to learn. That is the beauty of it. None can say that they know English completely. They can say yet to learn. Coming to spoken English, it's easy to speak. You can find no language as easy as English. Easily understandable and easily learnable. This is the great path that joins world wide members under one roof as a English family. So guys if you are perfect in your national language, it will not be enough. You should know a world-wide accepted international language to communicate to others. Or else you will lag behind in this globalization era.
