This chapter examines the development and roles of the English and the national language in several members of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) including Burma, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Thailand, and Vietnam. In all these countries, except Burma and possibly Laos, English is playing an increasingly important role, especially as a language of communication. The analysis reveals that economic progress and political development can be successfully achieved without mass recourse to English.

Keywords:   English language, national language, ASEAN countries, Burma, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Thailand, Vietnam, economic progress
