The development of world English has become a hot issue that draws an increasing attention from the researchers. How should we deal with the relationship between the UK English—the so-called internal English and the English used in non-native countries—the so called world English. How does the world English develop into its present position The answers of those questions would be the key to the studies of English language education as well as the national language policy. Thus, this paper attempts to, take Kenya English as a typical example, address the question of how world English develop into its present role and what are the critical influential factors.
