"Official" language of a country means that spoken in government.
There are certainly many small countries and some regions of the world where English is practically unknown; those few that speak it may think themselves more prestigous as a consequence, perhaps.
How about: Papua/New Genua; Tibet; Mongolia; any of the former Soviet muslim republics?
Do you think English is considered a language of prestige in Iraq or Iran?
If you were to suggest to a Frenchman that English is actually the official language of France, he would send your ass over tea-kettle. You would also be wrong.
Would you care to explain why you are obsessed with prestige and ideas of who is better than whom?
A proposito, eu estou tentando tornar "bi-lingual", como voce pode ver. Eu nao tenho qualquer duvida que eu deve aprender mais, muito mais.
