English is the language of international communication
Further rates of the English language expansion depend on the language policy of such a vast country like India — a country with countless number of local dialects. The British helped to popularize Hindi nationwide, however, since the mid-19 century, that was English that was declared as the official administrative language of India. Even the natives from poor Indian families seek to master English perfectly, being aware of its importance for the further careers. It is projected that by 2050 India will become the largest country in the world (with a population of 1.6 billion people). By that time, China will be a state with a highly developed economy, not lagging behind the United States. That would increase the share of the English language in the global society. As a result, two of the three major world states will actively use English for communicative purposes. It is likely that China will have no other choice but to follow the common English language trend. So, a precedent has already happened, and its consequences are most likely irreversible.
