I went to burkina Faso in the year 2007 and I could witness how the linguistic barrier can kill the progress of people and that of their nations in the sense that they are limited only to those they can interact with.

<27 Jan> (Personal message from petitioner) [From Mali] L'introduction de l'Anglais doit être une primauté à tous les niveau du système éducatif des gouvernements des pays Africains.

<13 Jan> (Personal message from petitioner) [From Mali] I hereby invite all African Nations to consider English sincerely as primarily and most important international language than any other language in the world. We have noticed here in Africa as the United States of America and Great Britain have dominated scientific reasearch and technic with great astronauts and scientists discoveries in late 19century and twenty and twenty first century. We Africans we should make sure that we still have the possibility to reverse French language in Africa in favor of English as predominant of the most powerful nations'language. With kind regards,

<08 Jan> (Personal message from petitioner) [From Somalia] I well know that the formal english language is best needed inn my country as such

<08 Jan> [BEST ONES] (Personal message from petitioner) [From Algeria] I don't like french language, because they do not let us to develope. English is used all over the world, and it is a fact, yes we go ahead better with english.

<07 Jan> [BEST ONES] [From Senegal] Even though it happend in a casual way, I have welcomed your website. I am a student who has been fond of English as early as I begeun to learn it in my Secondary School. […]. To be frank, as far as my country (Senegal) is concerned, we can not escape the use of English, day by day. I can not find the words to express my gratitude to your envied vision in a world that is moving more and more in togetheness. Thank you very much!

<07 Jan> (Personal message from petitioner) [From Senegal] English being an irreversible language in the work of today's world, I am, as an English student, ready to do my best for an implementation of such a language in my country.

<07 Jan> [BEST ONES] (Personal message from petitioner) [From Ivory Coast] Hi ! I think it is a good initiative and i am willing to help you achieve your goal. I am from Côte d'Ivoire and I am aware of the importance of English as first foreign language

<07 Jan> [BEST ONES] [From Ivory Coast] Hi ! I think it is very important to speak English worldwide. I hope you achieve your goal in Africa

<05 Jan> [BEST ONES] [From Niger] Just to say you i 'm enjoyed to read your statement. I 'm from a french [speaking] country but very interested by English language I m learning now. THANKS YOU.

I don't speak english fluently but i try to learn everyday when i talk with other, write to other and i like corresponding by internet with all people around the world.

<04 Jan> [From DRC] I am really interesting in your idea of making English becomes the 1st foreign Language in most African countries, especially for the reasons that you have mentioned. I am working in this field since a longtime in the Ministry of education of our country "Democratic Republic of Congo" […] to provide congolese schools with the english books for the teaching of English in the secondary schools

<04 Jan> (Personal message from petitioner) [From Tunisia] I really think that the use of English as a foreign language in Tunisia is insufficient and therefore I am very optimistic and enthusiastic about your initiative. I believe that English should be more valorised in the educational system to enable people to use it and master it conveniently in everyday life. So, I suggest the implementation of more exchange programs between Tunisian and foreign pupils or students; besides I would have liked to have access to more radio broadcasted English programs (since we only listen to the English program on our National radio for simply 30 minutes a day, which is a very little!)...

<04 Jan> [BEST ONES] [From Senegal] hello, nowadays, we're talking about world mondialisation and globalisation, and i think it's not possible to be open in the world without speaking english. if African's countries want to be develloping, they have to improve thier english.

Men hate each other because they fear each other; 
They fear each other because they don't know each other; 
They don't know each other because they are so often separated from each other.”

Martin Luther King Jr.,
Civil rights movement leader, USA

Really it is not choosing English for its own sake, This is a way to make Rwanda to be equal, to use English. English is now a world language, especially in trade and commerce. Rwanda is trying to attract foreign investors — most of these people are speaking English. It's choosing English as a medium of instruction so we Rwandans of today, and more importantly of tomorrow, will be able to benefit. If Spanish or any other language could get us to that, no problem. If Kinyarwanda could get us to that, that would be marvellous. It is not English for its own sake.

Claver Yisa,
Director of policy planning at the education ministry, Rwanda

The movement [speaking English in Vietnam] was strongly supported by a variety of jobs offered through foreign investments. English, the use of which was more popular in the South, tended to be a reason for more foreign investment there than in the North [Where Russian was more spoken].
