My English native language





My English native language

The intercultural and globalization has made some languages gain more speakers compared to others. An example for a language that has gained is English. Many nations have incorporated English in their curriculums and recognized it as an international language. My native language is English, which I have spoken from birth. I also attend a school having their curriculum in English, and this has rooted me deep into this language.

Many times I have encountered None-English natives speaking in English. Considering that they come from other nations where their native languages is not English, I have just enjoyed their speeches. However, the difference has been in the way they communicate, the fluency and the speed. Unable to connect sentences and words properly, some has practiced speaking slowly.

I have been in situations where the people around me speak another languages I do not understand. This was a hotel. I had entered the hotel and found some people sitting. After a while, they started speaking in Kiswahili. For the first time, I listened carefully to grasp what the speech was about. This was without success. It was not good because I was not sure what they were talking about and whether they were discussing me, I could not tell. Such cases and scenes make one feel out of a place and isolated.

Intercultural communication is a vital tool in the modern age of globalization and increased cultural exchange. It necessitates the acquisition of various skills that enable individuals to deal with the various barriers to effective intercultural interaction and communications. Global relations are also essential as it is socially appropriate or culturally appropriate. It helps to communicative behaviour and this helps deal with the challenges by allowing individuals to recognize what is culturally appropriate from their perspective and perspectives of others.
