    Most of the people have in their mind that English will become the only spoken language slowly and gradually with the growth of tourism as it has contributed to it becoming the most eminent language in the world. This essay will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of having one universal language in the whole world.

    English language becoming the global language will reap many benefits. There would be no discrimination on the basis of language. As a result, everyone would be treated equally. There would be least chances of miscommunication which will enhance better understanding among people. For instance, an Indian can freely speak to a person in USA which will rather improve inter-country relationship too. There would be no separate courses people had to opt for being bilingual as it would be no longer needed. Speaking one language will make the person comfortable to deal with different people in several countries.

    The major disadvantages of having one language worldwide will result into loss of native language and their mother tongue and subsequently the loss of their culture. People will loss their native language, their mother tongue. There would be no separate identity of people belonging to particular region. This would in turn will have dire consequences on tourism industry as there would be no point of travel if everyone have same culture and language.

    However there are some advantages of English being the only language, but having local and regional language is must to ensure a rich world heritage for future generations. Therefore, it would be beneficial to speak one’s native language.

The lesser the number of languages, the more effective would be the communication.

        The major disadvantages of having one language worldwide will result in the lose of native language and their mother tongue and subsequently the lose of their culture. Their native language and mother tongue will become extinct with the time. There would be no separate identity of people belonging to a particular region. This would in turn will have dire consequences on tourism industry as there would be no point of travel if everyone has same culture and language. The richness of the world civilizations comes from variety of languages.

        To conclude, there are some advantages of English being the only language, but having local and regional language is must to ensure a rich world heritage for future generations. Therefore, it would be beneficial to speak one’s native language.

    Tourism is one of the important contributors to GDP in many developing countries and since most of the travellers are from developed English speaking nations, the local community is bound to learn the language to boost their business. Some people believe that it will lead to English becoming the only language to be spoken. In this essay, we shall discuss both the advantages and disadvantages of having only one language across the globe.

    Having one language as a means of communication brings the world closer and enables us to understand each other better. Tourists can now travel without the fear of travelling into unknown territory as language binds them with the locals. For Instance, many travellers have complained that they have been looted in a foreign nation because of the language barrier, these kinds of experiences will be avoided by having one language system.Having a unison language will have a resounding impact in the field of science and technology, as people will be able to understand easily and work on any new theory immediately, thus saving time on translation. Thus, having one common language not only helps in communication but also saves money and time.

    Though governments can reap monetary benefits by having a single language, it will undermine the very basic foundation of a culture, which is language. The uniqueness of society will be lost if its language is lost. For example, many regional languages are now dead in India since the government made Hindi a mandatory language in schools. The future generations will not be even knowing such languages existed and thus massive destruction of various cultures will be happening all across the globe. The impact of having one language will be that like naming animals under extinct category we will head towards placing our mother tongues in it.

    Thus, weighing both the advantages and disadvantages of having a common language, I personally feel that one should not put his own language and culture at peril at the behest of monetary benefits.

    The English language has become ubiquitous nowadays and continues its expansion through the world. And it is true that when English becomes a common language we will have a much closer and understanding international community, it would certainly be at the expense of smaller indigenous people and their languages. This essay will examine positive and negative sides of global prevalence of one language.

    It is unquestionable that having one language that all people are able to comprehend, yields numerous benefits from practical point of view. Firstly, everyone will be capable to have a conversation with a foreigner without any language barrier. Secondly, an ample amount of money that spends as remunerations for professional translators, will be save. Also, thinking in one language unites people and their mutual understanding will be increased significantly. Therefore, an international language is beneficial to economical development and generally facilitates communication process.

    On the other hand, electing English as the only spoken language around the world would certainly prove a threat to small cultures around the world, especially indigenous communities. Already one can witness that there are many tribes which are disconnected from the world, and if English were to become the main language, it would push those groups further away. If there is no support provided to market their local language and culture, their heritage would fade away by lack of visits from tourists. For example, many small tribes living in islands of Japan see a lot of visitors who are very curious of their old and rich history.

    In conclusion, with more and more tourists visiting various cultures and places, the logic behind making English as a global language will only get stronger. This might prove effective in removing misunderstandings and communication barriers among the global community. Meanwhile, it is also advisable to not get detached from one’s own mother tongue.

    English has become the most widely used language across the world because of tourism. Will this lead to English being the only language used in the future? Some people think that it will. Following paragraphs will discuss pros and cons of this prospective future.

    Firstly, the most important advantage of a single language would be the ease of communication it will bring for people across the world. Proper communication will promote development and decrease conflict among different countries. For instance, countries which did not adapt to English until recently are lagging both in technology and lifestyle. Secondly, every individual will have access to more knowledge and hence a broader perspective of the world. A paddy farmer in a remote village would have more knowledge, both related and unrelated to his job if he spoke English rather than a local tongue.

    On the other hand, one of the most important disadvantage will be the loss of culture. Each language has its history, culture and significance which will be lost if English becomes the only language spoken. English does not have replacements to some native words and will lead to loss of a few ways of expression. For example, Sanskrit has one of the longest history among all the languages and many claim that translating historical poems and records written in Sanskrit into any other language loses their meaning and appeal. The demerits of English as the only language seem more serious than the merits it might bring.

    To conclude, although having English as the only language can promote development and individual knowledge, the cultural cost at which these merits are gained is not worth it. Having English as a common second language while retaining the other languages would bring the best of both scenarios.

    The people who travels to tourist places especially use English as a communication language it is because English language is spoken globally. Undoubtedly there are both pros and cons for using English as communication language in tourist places. This essay describes the advantage and disadvantage of using English in tourist places.

    Using English as a primary language in tourist places helps in better communication between the travelers and the tour guide. Travelers gain the knowledge of local history place, since english is spoken. While using English as primary language in tourist places, it attracts many travelers to visit the tourist places which helps in boosting the country economy.


    On the other hand, countries will lose their uniqueness and diversity. It would be a great loss of, because people do not want to travel for pleasure and interest if all the countries has the same and similar cultures.

    In conclusion, there are both pros and cons of having one language. We can say that English should be taken as global language. But, at the same time we cannot ignore the local languages and cultures.

    English has been renowned as the Universal Language since the advent of colonialism. The growth of tourism across the world contributed to the prominence of this language as this single medium would help in communicating with almost everyone around the globe. Although, there exist advantages and disadvantages to having one language in the world which are to be discussed.

    A single language all through the world aids in easing the communication among people thereby reducing the gap of age, and status that may be seen in them. Moreover, it helps in creating a sense of oneness so that there can be no discrimination in the name of a language. In addition, the huge crowd of translators and their mistranslations can be avoided when it comes to a world leaders’ gathering. For instance, there were incidents that led countries to war just because of improper translations. The notion of a solitary language can impart confidence in people to face a group in their office or a crowd in public.

    On the contrary, language is a cultural symbol that exemplifies the essence and diversity in art, culture, and heritage intertwined with one’s native which could be adversely affected by the idea of a single language. It must also be considered the status of various aboriginal groups around the world who may phase out due to lack of communication with locals of their inhabitance. In fact, many cultural celebrations are tied up with the local language where the translations of related words are laborious and may lose their true sense.

    In a nutshell, a single language for the world is rather more close to a utopian idea since it can wreck the uniqueness and diversity in different cultures. However, a universal language like English is definitive as this can create oneness in people along with preserving the native language in its vivid canvas.

        English rose to its present-day prominence and widespread acceptability since the advent of tourism.

    Most of the cosmopolitan city has adapted English as it’s a prevalent worldwide as an international language therefore all sectors often follow this language & tourism sector is not untouchable. Definitely, the expansion of tourism has been possible due the extensive efforts that’s been made by the government to fetch the foreign tourists by making them opportune in terms of communication, in that case English plays a vital role but few scenarios are being overlooked with the widely acceptance of this language.

    I’m absolutely convinced with the fact that English has emerged as a compelling language in the market but tourism has made English a coercive language as that’s helped in the growth of the sector and eventually generating the revenue for the development of the country. Not only the tourists which get lure but also foreign investors who are looking forward for the places across the world where exploration would happen without hindrance of language has been finding comfortable.

    Subsequently, the most relevant question always pops up in my mind, would tourism be constricting to specific language? As per my conscience, the answer should be “NO” because there has been a significant amount of people who are not very well versed with the English language,for those tourism seems to be a nightmare & do not entail them in the development of tourism.

    To conclude, it’s undeniable that tourism has made English as imperative language across the globe because of this exemplary acceptance internationally but Tourism should not be confined to specific language otherwise the spectrum of originality will be thwarted.

    Over the years, English has become one of the prominent languages in the world as people believe that it has become an universal language while other languages gradually tend to disappear. But, even though, it has advantages, there are lots of disadvantages too. This essay will examine the main advantages and drawbacks of having a single universal language.

    The main advantages of having a single language rather than multiple local languages are ease of communication among several countries and which can improve inter-country relationship. Due to having sole language spoken all over the world will make communication convenient. Furthermore, trade and business opportunities between two nations can be efficient. People can communicate from one corner of the world to another corner which will surely help in globalization. Moreover, tourists can be benefitted and comforted to explore more without facing difficulties in communicating.

    On the contrary, the main disadvantage would be countries will lose their uniqueness and language diversity. Although it is possible to make English the primary language of a country, it is really difficult for every country to attain the level of fluency as a native speaker, cause the accent differs from one country to another. For instance, Canada, Australia, and the US have English as their primary language. But they differ in their accent. Furthermore, this leads to an extinction of local language and local culture that have been preserved by the ancestors for a long time which in all makes them loose their true value.

    In conclusion, a single universal language is definitely beneficial for every country and improves the relationship among them, but it is certainly harmful for the local language and damages the local culture in future.

    English has become the most adopted language in the world despite the fact that it is not spoken by the majority of the countries. The growth in the tourism sector has made English a widely accepted language in the many part of the world. Hence, many people are believe that it will be contributing to English become the single language to be spoken in the world. This essay will discuss the pros and cons of having one common language on the earth.

    Definitely, having a sole language will have enormous advantage to the countries it will benefit to make hassle free trade between nations, additionally, a noneconomic transections such as education or technology exchange also can be performed seamlessly between nations. for instance, Chinese and Russian can establish trade effortlessly as understanding would be so easy for both. Another main advantage is countries can standardize their study or education system thereby the skills and manpower facilities could be exchanged which potentially help to create more job opportunities.

    However, there are the downsides of one global language also. Countries may lose their ancient language which has linked with own values, culture and tradition and those represents their origin and sense of belonging therefore there is risk of losing own identity. Another major drawback is setting a single language is tedious task for any countries and obviously it’s not an overnight job. It may lead to dispute or outbreak among the countries or even within the countries especially like the India which is most diversified nation.

    Finally I would say adopting a sole language will stronger the relationship and economy of countries as powerful advantage considering other side fact that drawbacks has not to be overlooked.

    Undeniably, English is the most popular and spoken language in this world. Some believes that because of the growth in the travel and holiday business, English language is conquering the every nook and corners in this contemporary world. This will eventually leads to English being the only lingua franca across the globe. In this essay we will see the merits and demerits of having a universal language.

    One of the evident benefit of having one common language is that it will make communication easier and will avoid unnecessary misunderstandings. This concept will also bring people all around the world together. For instance in India, politicians are taking advantage of the people’s affinity to their respective mother tongue and creating altercations among different communities thereby politicizing their language sentiments. If English is the only language spoken, then these unnecessary political dramas can be avoided. Universal language will also aid in improving the economy at international level as this removes the language barriers among countries thereby paving way for smooth and trouble free trading.

    On the other hand, making one language predominant will lead to disappearance of other languages which have more values and rich cultures in it thereby destroying the diversity in the world. Culture, language and history are interlinked blocks and these are the identifications for many human beings. With the death of any language, the culture, the traditions and the history of that community will also disappear. Without diversity this world will become a mundane place to live thereby killing the tourism and the tourism based economies.

    Language is the one that defines and groom the human being by its rich and varied heritage. Though there are few advantages in having a one language system, we will be completely losing all the regional languages and their varied heritage.
