The term English refers to anything originating from the country of England, including its people, as well as the English language.

English culture had an impact on the people of Earth because England, as part of Old Britain, once controlled a global empire that included portions of the future United States of America, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, India, and more. That outreach was made possible through a combination of an advanced navy, numerous voyages of discovery, and a cosmopolitan trade network.

A pivotal moment in the expansion of English culture was the defeat of the Spanish Armada in 1588 AD. A Spanish victory would have almost ensured the marginalization of British influence on world affairs. (ENT: "Future Tense")
