Since 2004, when the first books about Globish were published, the talk about Globish has changed. In that year, in forums on the Internet, many English teachers looked at the idea -- and then looked away, saying: "I cannot imagine anything important being said in Globish" and "They are going to destroy our beautiful English language" and "Why can't they just learn how to speak decent English?"
Now, 5 years later… there are very different questions floating around in English Language Forums: "How many people now know enough English?" "Should the English teachers, who said 'you will never be good enough,' now still be the keepers of the flame?". And a few are beginning to ask: "How much English is enough?"
Globish may have the answer.
