Communication begins at birth with touch, then with vision, and finally with speech and hearing or audition. Each child needs to learn the "codes of his/her culture" because the language of each culture is different. Yet, if a child is to learn about his/her world, the ability to communicate must exist. Even after a baby learns the rudiments of communication through touch, vision and hearing, those skills need to continue to be refined until about age seven, when the brain is ready to deal with the abstracts/concepts involved in reading, writing, comprehension, maths 'language' or concepts and body language. This short article is a dissemination of concepts with concern to the evolution of communication or language as expressed in the famous dubiety, "First came the egg or the hen?" Today when research into languages, culture and language acquisition is at a peak, we should not shy away from the question of the origin of 'communication' and 'language' in order to consider which may have come first. The second part of this article is a brief discussion on the global language and its significance and incorporation in language classrooms in India. The last section of this article focusses on the types of change occurring in the use of the English Language as used by young people nowadays.
