    To be fair, the headline is wrong

    He states three times that Thai could become a world language, he doesn't say 'the' world language. They'll never catch China/Mandarin speakers

    Times change, read that USA has the world's second largest Spanish-speaking population, behind Mexico

    The good general may consider world domination in small stages, maybe target Laos and take over their language classes

    Until they simplify the script and use punctuation, it will never become a world language. Same reason I don't think there is a strong literary tradition in LOS. Who can read that script for more than a few minutes with out getting a headache? 555

    Interesting!
    But surely not as a % of population?
    Political Correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and promoted by a sick mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!

    Census 2011
    Speaks another language, and English not well or not at all 654,964, 3.0%

    For NZ, census 2014, proportion of people who did not speak English remained at 2.2 percent 87,000. I'm unclear if this would include Australians...

    NZs main languages: English, Maori, Chinese dialects, Samoan, Hindi

    "english" language is a weapon/tool, it is multiplicite- speak of spindoctors, a mongrel language. The highest level of it is called legaleze, it is a by-product of too much war, juggling the truth and the covering up of its own trackmarks.

    When you speak half-truths*, you forget where you "left" it(truth), the victim is the concept of justice. Confusionism*
