If you have not seen TED talks, you are missing one of the best resources that the web gives you. Its just brilliant.
This TED talk by Jay Walker explores the worldwide mania for English. Walker has got it completely right. In India’s remotest villages, the concept of English being a tool to success is crystal clear. Although localization is itself important, there si no doubt that the language of global business and problem-solving is now English. I sincerely hope that like China, we are able to evolve a consensus where every child has a right to quality English education.
