English is a language too, and I was using it a lot yesterday.

At Otago Polytechnic’s English School I used it to help welcome in a large group of students from 10 to 15 different countries. As a teacher I tried to use common words, simple grammar and short sentences.

At home, online, I continued in that vein, expressing myself as clearly as possible in understandable English (and Dutch) to family members in both New Zealand and Holland.

Being able to use Globish is a skill and a necessity too. It takes effort and practice to use any language effectively.
