Global spread of English threatens US, UK: study

Truth of the matter is that although people in Asia are learning English from early on, the majority still can’t speak it. I’ve taught at Universities in three countries and most of my students could read and speak a bit. However, the English spoken was no better than the Spanish spoken by a 4th semester Spanish student in the states (that is a mouthful). Well, maybe a little better.

Trying to reach you--

Jim, I have one of your pieces slated to run in the next issue of my magazine and need a bio from you. Don't have an email for you, so please drop me a line.

Thanks,
