The significance of English cannot be denied in the present scenario. It has emerged as the most widely used language of the world. Almost all the scientific studies in most of the universities of the world are carried out in English medium. It not only helps us to be updated with the recent developments around the world but also plays an important role in the enhancement of our personality. Fluency in English language is a must for getting jobs in multinational companies. EIL (English as International Language) is dramatically challenging the ELT profession and further research can help practitioners better appreciate the contribution of EIL to language teaching and intercultural communication all over the world.With the emergence of new age economies like the software development and call centers the significance of the language has increased further. In order to sustain oneself and find a livelihood a good knowledge of English is compulsory. The dominance of English therefore becomes significant to the first generation learners. This influence of English can be seen in all the engineering and professional colleges who have made the learning of English mandatory for all the students. This paper is an attempt to illustrate the dominance of English language for the first generation learners.
