English is descended from the language spoken by the Germanic tribes, the Angles, Saxons, and Jutes.
The dialects spoken by these invaders formed what would be called Old English, which was also strongly influenced by yet another Germanic dialect, Old Norse, spoken by Viking invaders who settled mainly in the North-East (see Jorvik).
Modern English, the language described by this article, began its rise around the time of William Shakespeare and its grammar has been essentially the same since that time, with the most important changes being in the large increase of vocabulary.

 Yamaguchi - Towards International English in EFL Classrooms in Japan (I-TESL-J)
English is a global language but because it is a living language, it has inevitably changed in order to suit specific contexts or needs (Crystal, 1997).
As for the sociolinguistic competence, which is regarded as a key element in the acquisition of socially appropriate native-like use of English, he points out that the acquisition of sociolinguistic competence is found to be a very gradual process even in an ESL context and it is found to be undeveloped in an EFL context.
In this sense, English may become a common linguistic property in the world and there is a need for further research in order to establish more effective approach to the learning of English.

 International English
English is spoken pretty-much anywhere there are tourists, in diplomatic settings, and anywhere where there is a lot of international business going on.
English will carry on and develop into a legitimate international language because it will continue to be used and needed throughout our world of interconnected information and commerce.
The new English that people will be speaking in one- or two-hundred years will be vastly different from your own, and the Asian, Africans, and Central Europeans will have just as much ownership over it as we will.

As often as I have experienced monolingual English speakers happily, but erroneously thinking that everyone speaks "their" language without realizing how much other people may be struggling to understand them, I appreciate an article like this very much.
Maybe I'm missing something, since this growing compulsion to be "international" seems to be so widely taken for granted, but looking at some of the things I translate, I really have no idea who is supposed to be communicating with whom.
English is something that was bizarrely fascinating to me in China as well, particularly with the preparation for the Olympics in Beijing.

I am in the UK using Quark 6 installed as International English version which means it must have the International English dictionary to spell check and the stylesheets attributes must be based on International English.
If you are using the US English version then obviously the dictionary would be the US English Dictionary and the style sheet attribute should be US English and not International English.
