Human language is culture bound and is the foremost foundation of communication that includes verbal, non- verbal and symbolic communication. It is through language that humans share ideas and thoughts and businesses and other activities take place. According to Naved (2015) “Language is what separates us from animals and makes us humans as it allows us to interact for various purposes”. Thus, it can be said that language is the mainstay of both personal and professional lives; and communication, both written and oral, requires language. Joseph and Taylor, (2006).
Every culture has its own language of communication in which humans interact with each other and carry on their everyday chores. However, when it comes to the language of business, it is English that has taken that position, globally. Owing to ‘the historical efforts of England’ (Naved, 2015) all of its former colonies: United States, Canada, Australia, and India have adopted English as their primary or secondary language. Businesses, culture and finance are taking place using English as the main language. Thus, English Language Communication (ELC) has become an integral part for business and cultural development.
