Average: 3.9 (58 votes)

English next was commissioned by the British Council and written by researcher David Graddol.

David Graddol is a British applied linguist, well known as a writer, broadcaster, researcher and consultant on issues relating to global English.

The report argues that we are already in a very new kind of environment and a new phase in the global development of English. What are the new rules and who will be the winners and who will be the losers? In this study David Graddol suggests some of the answers by analysing demographic and economic trends in the Twenty First-Century which affect Global English and language policies worldwide and will influence its future.
