Around the 90s I was put up next to 3 S'pore teachers who came down to a college in Madurai Tamil Nadu India. We were on 2nd level 12 Omkar Block Parsn Shrishti and they in 11...opp their college. Later a Mauritian girl came down with grand uncle and aunt....all to grad in Tamil. I was eagerly tasting their English slang mixed with their Mandarin and Mauritian"Phrench"...they made good learning to my daughter who had it as optional language. Last summer I had been to Malaysia, S'pore and Thailand met in addition, Chinese and Indonesian tourists...and talked a lot to. The English as an international language has gone ahead in a good direction as the I.T sector has made the world into a global village. BBC or the English teaching as a world 2nd most used is coming true...the Chinese are yielding to English. as international.
