The level of confidence u show and amount of knowledge u posses over whatever language u speak is important.
I agree with you on all points. Language should never be a measure of intelligence since brilliant people can have problems expressing themselves or, as you say, it could be a second language.
Yeah, somewhere I agree with your point. But, nations exist in which complexion is used as a parameter to judge anyone's beauty and English is used as a parameter to judge anyone's intelligence. Where English is a 2nd language, it seems to be, if you're capable enough to converse in English, then only you're capable of doing something. Vexatious people would try to annihilate your grin, where for them, it's not a medium of language, it's a way to show off, as if speaking in English is something out of someone's approach. And According to statistics, English is not even the language which comes on no. 1 under the list of most spoken languages, it is Chinese.
It does seem to be the language that is standard for doing international business. Likely this is because for much of history the British Empire was a dominant force and, as it's power waned on the global scale, the United States rose. As the US was a British colony they also spoke English, leading to many years of English permeating the world. If another nation that does not speak English surpasses the US it is possible that this could change, but until such a nation has been the dominant global force for some time English will likely remain the most powerful language.
