well there might be different englishes like chinese english, japanese english, singaporean english, australian english, jamaican english, spanglish, finglish etc etc. But no in the end I think there will be one universal english really:) the world is shrinking so rapidly!!

sure we recently had a project about this in school. Like how english is developing differently in different countries. Like in jamaica, where they speak english, but they partly mix it with native words and phrases. Pluss their accent is so unique, that even an american would have difficulties understanding them! Even though they in reality speak the same language. Hinglish also another one. There's so many languages in india, that they often use english to communicate with eachother, because then it's not unfair to choose one of the languages to speak in. But they still speak with their own accents, and they mix in words from for example hindi. For outsiders with no knowledge of hindi though, it would be difficult listening to the conversation.

I think a percentage not all of the people in China speak mandarin. A from Mandarin and Cantonese as the two major options the Chinese took note of variants and came up with Standard Mandarin as the National Language.

If you have English under your belt you have a huge advantage already over the ones who do not speak it. So totally agree with SimplyBill.
