Is it time to stop the spread of English?

English rules? This somewhat triumphalist article from the Mail Online gloats over the fact that English has surpassed French and that 2/3 of Europeans speak it (??). In my view that proliferation of language related resources on the web, including instant translation etc. should help turn this around and bring back a little more balance in the weight of different languages, eventually. I will also touch on this English domination issue when I get around to reviewing my CLIL conference experience.
