    Tourism has absolutely played a major role in increasing the prominence of the English language. Why do some people believe that this will eventually lead to English becoming the only language spoken? In this essay, we shall discuss the benefits and drawbacks of having one language universally.

    As it appears that, tourism is an important contributor to the rising economy for many developing countries, the major advantages of having one language universally would make communication easier since the majority of the travelers are from English-speaking countries, and it will let them feel comfortable instead of being anxious. Furthermore, trade and business opportunities between the two countries will be efficient. Likewise, many historical areas which are being unexplored owing to inadequate translators can be avoided. This concept would also bring people all around the world together.

    On the other hand, confining local languages would ruin the values and moral beliefs of a nation. For instance, In India, culture, language and heritage are all interlinked and it may affect traditions being heeded from thousands of years maintained by ancestors leading to the extinction of localism. Having said that, it is possible to make English a universal language, but it is dubious if every country can attain fluency and pronunciation to the level of a native speaker. Pragmatically, the richness of world civilizations comes from a variety of languages.

    In conclusion, a single universal language is beneficial for every country and improves the relationship among them, but to do so will challenge the ethos, local languages, and may damage the growth of a nation in the future.

    Tourism has made this world more connected towards diverse cultures and different languages around the world, however, out of the multiple languages spoken, English has become the most prominent language and the same is accepted by the masses. Succeeding paragraphs will highlight the advantages and disadvantages of having only a language in the world.

    There are so many advantages of common language around the globe like Reduction in inequality difference, No language tests required for study and word abroad, Global Laws and regulation become understandable to every person, Reduction in interpretation issues. However, the main advantage of one language would be quality education accessible to the young generation of poor countries as they can also participate in the economy.

    The main disadvantage of having one language would result in loss of cultural diversity around the different regions. There are thousands of languages which are used in any countries based on their religion, which will make them different from other religions. For Eg. In India, people of different religions are recognized by the language they used for communication, Like, Sikhs used Punjabi as their main language for communication.

    In conclusion, I would like to highlight that, though there are many advantages of using a common language around the globe, however, this would result in a detrimental impact on the sociological environment of globe.

    Tourism has became one of the main sources of economy in every country. The usage of global language English is increasing gradually, rather than local language. This essay will discuss about why choosing one language is beneficial than usage of local language.

    Firstly, Adopting english language as a source of communication made tourists comfortable to communicate and explore the new country. It provides a great source of economy to the country by increasing tourists. Mainly, tourists can know about the culture and heritage deeply when explained in global language.

    Furthermore, it avoids misleading of tourists and by deep knowledge of local laws and instructions, illegal activities can be stopped. For instance, a person can able to know prohibited activities and regulations. Not only tourism, all other industries are getting benefited that includes trading, travel, restuarant and hotel.

    However, the improvement in one language system leads to deterioration of local language and its culture. Some local people may lose their jobs and it may lead to deployment of people.

    To conclude, undoubtedly English is a prominent language using worldwide. It has created opportunity and development in every field all over the world rather not only for immigration. Degradation of other language and its culture also should be considered by use of universal language and it should be included as a must language for local people along with English to avoid such circumstances.

    Tourism has always played a vital role in boosting economy of a nation. The development of tourism has led to the contribution of using a common language which is English. Some people believe that gradually English might become the only official language around the globe. This essay highlights the advantages and disadvantages of having one language in the world.

    The major advantages of having a single language is the fulfillment of communication gap between different people and ease of migrating to different countries which ultimately can fill the skills gap. Due to having the universal language, people can communicate to each other very easily and effectively. For instance, a person from Canada travelling to India will not struggle to communicate and local population in India will also be more welcoming to such tourists. Furthermore people from India will also consider to visit Canada. Another advantage is the ease of migration between different countries. For instance, if a person highly capable and expert in his field and want to migrate to another country then language will not be a barrier for him and this also would act as a tool to fill the skill gap in a nation.

    The main disadvantage of having a universal language is the adaptability and extinction of core value of a culture. Not all the people can speak English fluently and even though they might consider English as official language but to adapt it as a mother tongue, it will be a challenging task for them. For instance, a person from Russia might not be able to speak English as fluently as Russian or any other local language. Another disadvantage is core value of a culture will be extinct. For instance, language is a core part of an individual culture and if a non-native speaker of English will be imposed upon by an official language of English, then they might feel parted from their culture.

    In conclusion, a single universal language is great for filling communication gap between different people that comes from different culture which belongs to different parts of world, but it will certainly depreciate the diversity of different cultures of world which is the beauty of our planet.

    The drastic progress in tourism industry throughout the world has led some individuals to believe that English will take over in coming years as the only spoken language in the world. Having one language has it benefits as well as some drawbacks attached to it which we will be discussing in length in this essay.

    One major advantage would be that communication around the global will become universal. In other words, a person sitting in North pole can speak to another person in South pole without any barrier of language. This will eventually lead to a sense of unity and oneness among all humans. Other than this, different countries can come together on one global platform to discuss their concerns and assist each other to overcome them.

    On the other hand, having a same world language would result in disappearance of many traditions and cultures. To elaborate, all over the world, there are more than 1000 indigenous groups which function mainly on regional dialects, forcing them to use English will be unethical as it will be tough for them to adapt to a new foreign language. Furthermore, tourism will be adversely affected since there is not much left to see and enjoy the culture of other country. For example, India is a multicultural and multilingual country, if it has a uniform tradition following one language, there is no point visiting other States for tourism. As a result, the tourism will go down and the economy of the country as well.

    To conclude, English can be spoken across the globe for ease of communication and documentation of official work but emphasizing it as the only language will just lead to vanishing of many ancient regional languages and dialects. Therefore, there should be a balance in usage of languages.

    Although the English language is considered to be the most widely spoke in tourism now a days. Some still believe that, it also the reason for diminishing of native language. Therefore, let’s discuss the advantages and disadvantages.

    Firstly, because of everyone is known to English language, tourism is also considering English language as it is also a benefit and other way to attract the population. In addition, now a days, most of the world’s revenue is from tourism. For example, India is one of the most popular tourist country and we could see more number of foreigners from USA, UK, France, etc, are visiting only since India is contributing to English speaking guides throughout the vacation. Therefore, we could understand how important the English Language for tourism.

    Besides, English language is becoming more prominent for tourism, especially to inflate the revenue. On the other side, people are worried due to diminishing of traditional languages. As a consequence, people have forgotten of remembering and using the native language words particularly the present and new generations. Furthermore, as the generations establish, native language should also be given priority.

    To conclude, although there are advantages if English language is given high importance for tourism besides, it increases the revenue. It is also clear that decrease in native language is a disadvantage.

    Thanks,

    The enhancement of tourism leads to the dominance of the English language globally. According to some sections of people, the English language shall only be the means of communication. This essay will present a couple of advantages and disadvantages when only one language is spoken around the world.

    First and foremost, the availability of only a single language bestows us with a couple of advantages. Importantly, The presence of a single language enhances harmony and growth. Globally, if we were to have only a single language, this would lead to a diminished barrier to communication. As a result, there would be lesser discrimination across people owing to lesser cultural differences. A good illustration of this is: In the past, in India, bifurcation of two states occurred namely Chennai and Andhra Pradesh solely on the basis of language. Had we had only a single language, the states would not have divided and flourished together.

    On contrary, the presence of a single language also has got its share of disadvantages such as reduced cognition and diversity. For instance, it has been scientifically proven that knowledge of multiple languages has been attributed to enhanced cognition in people which we can be deprived of with the presence of a single language. Moreover, the presence of a single language closes the realms of diverse cultures.

    Taking both pros and cons into consideration, the presence of a single language imbibes a feeling of harmony and growth but on the other hand, we are deprived of higher cognition and varied culture.

    Some 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 prominent language globally. Having one language will certainly aid understanding and economic growth but there will also be some drawbacks.

    Having one global language will surely reap many benefits. There would be no discrimination based on language. As a result, everyone would be treated equally. There would be less 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 international relationship too. Speaking one language will make the person comfortable to deal with different people in several countries. Also, there would be no separate courses that people have to opt for being bilingual as it would be no longer needed. 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.
