        Totaling about 1.5 billion or 1.8 billion speakers, English is the primary language of the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, Australia, Ireland, New Zealand, and various Caribbean and Pacific island nations; it is also an official language of Hong Kong, Pakistan, India, the Philippines, Singapore and many sub-Saharan African countries. It is the most widely spoken language in the world, and the most widely taught foreign language.

        In terms of foreign exchange market turnover, the UK isnโ€™t just the leader, it’s still gaining ground, according to the Bank of International Settlements.
