The article provides details and data regarding the '''geographical''' '''distribution of all English speakers''', regardless of the legislative status of the countries where it's spoken. The [[English language]] is one of the most widely spoken languages of the world, and it's widely used in the international communication as [[lingua franca]]. Many international organizations use English as their official language.
 
 
 
== Statistics ==
 
 
 
=== Native speakers ===
 
This table depicts the [[First language|native speakers]] of the language, which means that the table includes people who have been exposed to the English language from birth and, thus, excludes people who use the language as a [[Second language|L2]].
