In the first part, an analysis of the presence of English in Spanish shop windows to greet Christmas is provided. In the second one, it examines the Spanish educational system and workplace, and discusses the extent to which the process of globalisation may have 'negative' effects on the linguistic, and, probably, cultural identity of speakers whose native language is not English. English has become the lingua franca of communication across the globe, but what kind of English should be used? It deals with the importance of focusing on the effectiveness of communication, rather than on the imitation of native models.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/45849||ISSN:||1224-5712||Source:||Analele Universitatii din Craiova - Seria Stiinte Filologice, Lingvistica[ISSN 1224-5712],v. 34, p. 115-132|
