    Abstract :
    English language serves as a tool for many opportunities that waits for the youngsters with zeal. In order to choose a career and become successful in that path, the mastery and flair for the language is essential. Communication not only means the fluency, in terms of rate of speed, but also in the fluency in the vocabulary. If there is a lack in the English proficiency, in spite of the technical qualification, the candidate will be unable to express the nuances in the particular field. “Global English” in a sociolinguistic context refers almost literally to the use of English as a global language. English language is widely handled in the fields such as media, foreign language teaching, business etc. English is also hugely important as an international language and plays an important part even in countries where the UK has historically had little influence. It has become clear in recent years through empirical studies conducted by language testers and others; language knowledge is multi-componential. The term communicative competence has been invoked for nearly three decades now to encompass the notion that language competence involves more than the narrowed linguistic competence. The first part of the paper deals with the importance of English language and its contribution in one’s career growth. The second part of the paper will discuss in detail about the part the language plays in the competitive exams.
