Lingua Franca: definition and short description.

lingua franca is a term use for the language which is widely adopted for the communication between two speakers whose native language differs from each other. Thus, the speakers use lingua franca as their “Second Language”.

Nowadays, English has become “language for communication” in almost all over the world. The significance of this language can be seen from Asia to Europe. In many countries, people are learning English to serve the purpose of communication. In short, we can say that  many people are using English as their lingua franca.

So, if you are also using English for the purpose of communication than happy lingua franca to you!!
