Vous communiquez mal en anglais, vous comprenez mal les Anglophones, et ils vous comprennent encore moins ? La lecture vous pose aussi des problèmes ; le téléphone est un calvaire ; quant à écrire, vous n’y rêvez même pas ?

Ce livre est pour vous exactement. Il vous expliquera que vous pouvez vous en sortir très efficacement avec un anglais limité, mais suffisant. C’est l’approche organisée du « globish ». Inutile de parler comme à Dallas ou à Cambridge, il faut privilégier l’efficacité, le résultat.

Mieux, cet ouvrage est entièrement écrit avec cet anglais allégé et digeste. Vous serez surpris de la démonstration : vous avez enfin trouvé un livre en anglais irréprochable, mais lisible pour tous ceux qui sont nés de ce côté-ci de la Manche.

La lecture vous redonnera confiance, et vous comprendrez comment acquérir le niveau nécessaire avec le minimum de douleur.

Good luck !



"Obviously, linguists and businesspeople alike recognise the need of some kind of international language. The dynamism of the international workplace and the changing role and status of English for international business require it.
I salute the in-depth overview of the socio-political, psycholinguistic and pedagogic arguments in favour of adopting Globish. The differentiation made between Globish as a language for communication and the speakers’ L1 as a language for identification is crucial in this era of lost and regained ethnic and linguistic identities.
Perhaps another idea worth mentioning would be that Globish not only opens a door to global understanding, but also creates a feeling of community and group identity in the global village."
Monica Hoogstad, Business English Coach, The English Channel

"I think this important book is just what is needed to help Anglophones, in particular, understand that Globish is not about bad English. As I see it, Globish is a way of helping non-Anglophones with a measured pathway into good English. I like that that the book builds on recognised principles of English-learning by being in Globish…"
Dr Liddy Nevile, La Trobe University, Melbourne

"The end of Babel is one of mankind's oldest ambitions, and Globish is its most recent expression…
Twenty years ago, when I was working on the BBC documentary series The Story of English, we struggled to find modern terminology for English as a lingua franca. Globish is not only the mot juste, it also provides a stunning metaphor for that sometimes puzzling state of international culture and society for which terms like 'Amer-English' or 'Anglo-American hegemony' are inadequate."
Robert McCrum (author The Story of English) in The Guardian, December 3rd, 2006

"Globish… teaches us that the more English becomes an international language, the more the ownership of the language will move away from the Anglo-Saxons."
Iman Kurdi, Arab News, December 23rd, 2006

"Since the end of World War II, the rise of a 'world-English' has been inevitable. But if Nerrière is formally codifying it, then Globish will gain status. This is a new thing and very interesting."
Jack Chambers, linguist, University of Toronto
