This is a strange question. English is not a programming lanuguage, so no executable code can ever be written in English.

We all know the importance of English. English is not important in coding , but for that for which we are writing the code. I mean, English is a language used to communicate with human. We use code to communicate with our machine.
So, English is required to get the requirements of the client and coding is used to fulfill that requirement.
