"Hi, Hello, Thank you, and Goodbye" are common English expression that the Thai people use in their daily conversation among the Thai people. It is obvious that English is well known as an international language. It seems possible to attribute this to three things: English as an important language to traders, an official language in colonies of the British Empire, and finally English as one of the easiest languages to typeset.

For the first factor, trader from English-speaking countries have been traveling around the global for a long time. People from non-English-speaking countries might not be able to communicate with these traders if they do not know how to speak English. Not understanding English when dealing with them has caused confusion and disputes. When they have problem with them, it will lead to trade delays and lower profits. On the other hand, understanding English reduces the trade delays and lower profits. On the other hand, understanding English reduces the trade delays significantly. It also creates good impressions and thus leads to good deals. This motivated many traders to study English all over the world. Therefore, it causes English to become and established trade language.

For the second factor, colonization helped English become an international language. The British Empire had colonized many countries in many continents around the world. Each time it successfully colonized one, it established English as an official language. People in the colonies viewed English as the language of elites, or high class people. This caused these colonized people to study English in order to advance their status. However, in many countries where English is used as a foreign language, the people are interested in studying it because it helps them advance in their careers and be able to continue their education in the western universities.

The last factor, English was one of the easiest languages to typeset. Typesetting allows many documents to be reproduced accurately in a very short time. This cause typesetting to become an important tool for delivering information. In addition, English has only 26 alphabets and a simple writing system. These facts caused information in English to be delivered faster than information in other languages. People who wanted to deliver information quickly were eventually forced to use English.

In sum, the above paragraphs should discuss the reasons why English has become an international language. It was an important trade language and an official language in colonies of the British Empire, Finally, it was one of the easiest language to typeset. Those who use English should understand why it has become an international language.
