Suzy speaking English

This video was recorded by Daniel Bogre Udell at the National Library of Scotland in Edinburgh, where Suzy is an archival curator. English is spoken by over 800 million people, primarily in the United Kingdom and its former colonies, and as a foreign language by people around the world. A literary language since the sixteenth century CE when it emerged in its modern form, English is one of the most widely used languages in popular media today. It is also woven into the syntax of many programming languages around the world.
