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.
