April 23 is English Language Day!
   English Language Day is celebrated each year on April 23 – the date when tradition says William Shakespeare was born. Shakespeare has been called the greatest writer in the English language. His plays continue to be published, performed in theaters and seen in films almost 400 years after his death.
      Many people consider English as the unofficial “world language” because it is so widely used. English is the main language of business and aviation. It is the most widely used language on the Internet and social media. 
The first English Language Day was the result of work by the United Nations. A few years ago the U.N.’s Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization created Language Days for each of the U.N.’s six official languages. The aim was to celebrate multilingualism – the use of different languages around the world – and different cultures.
