Globalization has brought about so many changes in our world today by which economies, societies, and cultures have become integrated through a globe-spanning network of exchange. Driven by a combination of economic, technological, sociocultural, political, and biological factors, the term also refers to the transnational dissemination of ideas, languages, or popular culture. Russia is one of the many countries which embarked on major reforms for globalization, which led to the collapse of the Soviet Union in late 1991. Since gaining its independence, Russia was recognized as the legal successor to the Soviet Union on the international stage. However, there is one big barrier to be globally competitive, their language. Russia has its own native language. Although their language is considered as one of the six official languages of the United Nations and is the most geographically widespread language of Eurasia and the largest native language in Europe, Russia has to learn the universal language, English. It may seem difficult but to be able to communicate with other people around the world Russia has to learn a second language.
Russians have to learn to speak the English language to broaden their opportunities to transact with other countries which also have different native languages. Learning to speak English can improve their communication skills in their fight against terrorism, pursuit for globally competitive marketing strategies, improvement in technology education, and political relations with other powerful countries. There is no better way to maintain good relations with one another than to be understood and that can only be achieved when both of you speak the same language.
The need to learn to speak English has transcended to a personal level. As observed, there is now an increasing number of foreign nationals of varying cultures in one given place all over the world. Thanks to the efforts directed towards tourism promotion. There has been an increased number of transcultural marriages which are not limited to only a specific culture but also include countries of different customs and languages. Russians are not exempted.
