HTWB Globish 1Here, to go with today’s article about Globish – a simplified version of English designed to help all cultures understand each other as English-as-second-language speakers – is the full list of their 1,500 base words.

Enjoy – and practice using them! As it says in the main article, you can check how your text works (or not) in Globish by using their handy scanner here.

Sorry, you’ll have to scroll as I don’t know how to create columns on here!
