Step 1: The concept The concept guiding this study is that language globalization gives attention to the rise of a global language from the Western countries which is Anglo American English. The exposure of the culture from the west has been evident through the use of internet which makes the world a small village (Steger, 2003). Nevertheless, it is important to note that globalization is eliminating other cultures while at the same time giving more attention to specific cultures, especially from the West. This makes the concept more interesting because language globalization is one of the main effects of cultural, protection, changes and eliminations across the world mostly due to global networks. Step 2: Conducting Research Language globalization has been evident since the time of colonization when the industrialized and developed countries forced their language on the weak nations. This was later enforced by teachers in schools to learn and understand the language. This means that the impact of education and the growth of the internet have also highly contributed to the rise of a global language which gives attention to the western culture (Crystal, 2003). In addition, continents such as Africa, the effect of language globalization has been evident because they make English one of their main languages in order to fit in the dynamic growing cultural globalization. On the other end, language globalization has not yet eliminated the native languages and cultures especially in the countries which have less participation in globalization. For instance, there are local communities in Africa which have not yet indulged into language globalization fully with a motive to retain their local languages. In most cases this happens when such a country is gaining less economically from learning the world language. On some other parts of the world, such as Hong Kong and Singapore they still value their culture and ancestral language (Erling & Seargeant, 2013). Such communities believe that protecting local languages is part of maintaining their heritage. Step 3: Annotated Bibliography Steger, M. B. (2003). Globalization: A very short introduction. Oxford: Oxford University Press Steger’s book offers a deep insight in relation to cultural globalization. This involves lifestyle and language globalization. Taking an approach in relation to internet growth, the author has insisted that it has contributed to the high rate of globalization. Dr. Steger, as a professor of global studies at RMIT University in Australia, he researched on cultural dimensions such as language and the way they have influenced the cultural changes across the globe. In chapter five he insisted that the emergences of global media networks which are controlled by the dominating countries from the west are leading to the rise of the homogenized culture. The insights from this chapter are highly relevant to my research since I will be trying to understand the role of globalization and its effect on language and culture. Crystal, D. (2003). English as a global language. Cambridge, UK: Cambridge University Press. David Crystal’s book gives a wide knowledge of how English has grown to be global language.. On the same point, the author’s main theme argues that the spread of English as a language was highly effective since the colonial rule which has lately led to language globalization. David Crystal as a British professional Linguist, in his research he was aware of many countries who are adopting the use of English in order to be successful economically. He argues that this has led to the elimination of cultural ways or ancestral languages from weak nations in order to adopt the western culture. This book is highly interactive on how nations have made English their first official language. The book is relevant to my research since it will help me understand the dominance of English as a language in different cultures globally. Erling, E. J., & Seargeant, P. (2013). English and development: Policy, pedagogy, and globalization. Bristol: Multilingual Matters The authors of the book Erling Elizabeth and Philip Sergeant based their experience on globalization and how it has affected the language and cultural dimension across the world. The authors attempt to prove that the world is not yet fully emerged into the western culture and Anglo American English. Dr. Erling Elizabeth as a Senior Lecturer in International Teacher Education in language studies and Philip Sergeant as a lecturer in applied linguistic both from Open University UK researched on cultural globalization. They firmly gave an illustration of the way regions in Asia such as Singapore has maintained their ancestral language because they value their heritage. This is the same with Africans because they have not yet fully indulged in cultural globalization. The content of the book was highly descriptive which will provide material on how different cultures have responded to language globalization and the rise of Anglo American English. Step 4: Thesis statement Language globalization has led to the dominance of Anglo-American English as the main language across the world. This has resulted in culture and native language elimination due to the rise of western culture. References Crystal, D. (2003). English as a global language. Cambridge, UK: Cambridge University Press. Erling, E. J., & Seargeant, P. (2013). English and development: Policy, pedagogy, and globalization. Bristol: Multilingual Matters Steger, M. B. (2003).

The concept guiding this study is that language globalization gives attention to the rise of
a global language from the Western countries which is Anglo American English. The exposure of
the culture from the west has been evident through the use of internet which makes the world a
small village (Steger, 2003). Nevertheless, it is important to note that globalization is eliminating
other cultures while at the same time giving more attention to specific cultures, especially from
the West. This makes the concept more interesting because language globalization is one of the
main effects of cultural, protection, changes and eliminations across the world mostly due to global
networks.
Step 2: Conducting Research
Language globalization has been evident since the time of colonization when the
industrialized and developed countries forced their language on the weak nations. This was later
enforced by teachers in schools to learn and understand the language. This means that the impact
of education and the growth of the internet have also highly contributed to the rise of a global
