Today there are between 6000 and 7000 languages in the world today with about 800 sounds. The last language was discovered as late as 2007. Over half of these languages are expected to die out within this century. One language that has not only survived over the centuries but is growing from strength to strength is the English Language. More than 2 billion people on the planet speak English and it has been rated as having the highest economic value among all the languages in the world. India based English training company EnglishEdge says that the data received by them on everyday basis serves to confirm the hypothesis that those who speak English tend to earn higher than others.
