There has been substantial inclusion of English as the main language used by people of China in various industries with specific application in the hospitality industry. “The impact of English on Chinese Mainland” as discussed by Zhang Ming-Jian covers the historical, educational and political dimensions of the impact. It has been found that historically there was some repulsion from the people of China for the English language. Then the effect of globalisation was extended to China as well and English was incorporated as an important part of the society. At present, even the policy-making procedures of the Chinese government involve and revolve around English. It has been fully explained how the English language was present in China but it was sporadic.
With the changes in the rulers and dynasty of the area, along with the World wars, English emerged as an important factor of development. English was also important from the education point of view. Many off-campus English language schools were also an important factor that led to the increased demand of English among students and teachers. There is also a strong evidence that political influence led English to become important in China. This paper will aim at identifying the inclusion of English as primary language for the hospitality industry of China. The inclusion and introduction would be the beginning with further speculation of how English became a part of business world and in turn was included in schools as a language course. Finally, the thesis would take into consideration the impact of this shift on the cultural values of the people and how China has accepted English as the ruling language as can be seen in present times.
