Business is done in all different languages, but the most common of them is English.  It is certainly not because English is easy to learn, compared to many other languages, English has some very difficult and sometimes nonsensical syntax and sounds.  Despite this, English dominates international business speaking for a number of reasons: the prevalence and international presence of US firms, the abundance of US Universities who have international exchange programs, and even our entertainment.  Many international students have noted that they learned a great deal of English watching US movies, tv shows, listening to US musicians and going on English websites.  Do you think that English will continue to be the language of business?  Could it possibly become a global language where nearly everyone will or could speak it?  Finally, do you agree with the assertion that US students and business people have a distinct (and perhaps unfair) advantage over others when applying to international firms simply because they speak better English?  Why/why not?
