Its pretty incredible what influence the English speakers from 1600-2020 have had on the world.
The EU recently voted to maintain its primary language as being English, even though England, and the UK, are no longer in it!
Also, I just saw this picture. Its from a few months ago, in India. The Indians greet an official Chinese leader with a message - in English.
Imagine the UK, or USA greeting a party from Japan, in another language, like French. Its unthinkable.
