According to "The Sociopolitics of English Language Teaching" by Joan Kelly Hall and William G. Eggington, "Individuals who speak English gain a concrete economic advantage. English provides increased educational and employment opportunities (Andrew Abrahamson, www.eslteachersboard.com). The increasing function of English as a global language has made people in the countries where English is not the native language try their best to acquire English in order to become the member of a global world. This goes the same with the people with different native language than English to enter the country where English is the native language. Their awareness of English importance has passed through to their children. People nowadays are alert enough to equip their children with proper English so they are ready for the globalization. While they are trying to catch up with English, they also need to maintain the use of their mother tongue as a bond to their origins and as their communication tool
