English is the number one means of communicating in every Asian region. It is the Lingua Franca that the people in the region use in their daily lives in order to effectively share their thoughts and express their feelings, not only in their region but also in interacting to other nationalities. Just like the businessman who makes transactions to other countries in order to successfully close, negotiate or offer some deals. Thus, every country not only in Asia, strives to learn the correct usage of English.
Nowadays, Asian regions focus on educating their students on speaking and writing in their regional variety of English. As a result, it is one of the major courses in every level such as in elementary and high school unit. In fact, English course is offered as a specialization in college so that a student will have focus on the proper usage of English and eventually will share his knowledge on it after he graduated. Having this as his course makes him an effective English teacher in their region. In this regard, Asian students from different regions who are fearful in speaking, because they falsely believe that they are poor speakers unless they sound like Americans, will have the confidence to speak using their regional variety of English. Moreover, having this regional variety of English will make Asian people maintain their identity while speaking. Let us say for example how the Filipino businessman gives his profile while transacting to other countries. This man actually proclaims to his client the thought of, "I am a Filipino". It is easy to know the nationality of this man because he has this Filipino dictation while speaking in English. Yes as you can see, the Japanese, Singaporean, Korean, Indian and Malaysian have different diction from Filipinos as well as how they pronounce each words. Therefore, English language for Asians is very important as it helps them live their daily lives.
