It is a term which describes the growing network of communication between individuals, groups, companies and countries.
The network is creating a shrinking world where local differences and national boundaries are being integrated and the planet is becoming a global village.
English is the language of globalization. It is used in international politics, business and diplomacy. 1.425 billion people communicate in English as their mother tongue or foreign language. English is widely spoken in so many places that many different version have evolved, some so peculiar that even native speakers may have trouble un-derstanding them.
Communication is now easier than it has ever been before thanks to the Internet, satellite television and mobile phones. The internet has created a network of information and links people in every part of the world.
Food is now traded and market on global basis.
The variety and availability of food is no longer restricted by the diversity of locally grown food or the limitations of local growing season. Ethnic food and restaurants have spread across the world: recipes are often adapted to reflect the availability of ingredients and desires of people.
