Kevin: Yes, I do. It is the process of exchanging goods, ideas, and culture between nations.
Nicky: Wow. That’s a very broad topic. Could you give me an example?
Kevin: Sure. For a business to grow bigger, they need to find partners from all over the world who will market their products and services.
Nicky: That’s interesting. Could you tell me more?
Kevin: Since it is a trade between different nations, they should share a common language to communicate effectively. This is the reason why many people study English.
Nicky: I see. Do you think that economics is also a big factor in globalization? Think about it. Every nation has limited resources. In order for them to have enough resources, they have to trade with other nations. Am I right?
