    English is becoming significantly the most prominent language globally used, because of the expanding growth in tourism industry and this is the reason why some people believe that it would lead to English becoming the only language used internationally. In my opinion, I completely disagree with this statement that English language will be the only form of communication.

    The language do offers various advantages to it, being that it is one of the most globally used language and is a pre-requisite if you want to work in international markets, world esteemed multinational companies and even if you simply want to pursue your education in foreign countries. It is the language which helps in unifying people from different parts of the world to share their thoughts and opinions about a topic or any wrongdoings happening in the world. For instance, you can see many different backgrounds and ethnicities of people working together in jobs because they can communicate freely due to their knowledge and fluency in English language.

    Although this does not prompt that it doesn’t have any cons to it, if English becomes the only medium of communication then people would forget about their own mother tongue, to explain this let’s take an example of second generation immigrants, whose parents came from different parts of the world to seek better opportunities for them which were scarce in their own country and had shifted to USA, UK and Europe which as a result had an significant impact because these children were not fluent in their own mother tongue, having very little information about their origins, traditions and customs of its people. The very own existence of their own country and its history would be forgotten if English is made to be the only language spoken globally. For instance, it is said that music has no barriers, and this is true because people from different countries have songs sung in their own language and if these songs are made to sing in English then the beauty and the ambiguity of the song would be destroyed completely.

    In conclusion, although English has gradually become a language to be more used globally, it does not mean that it has the ability to replace other languages, because each language speaks volumes about their history and origins of its country, similarly it is important to be proud of your heritage and that is by firstly respecting your own mother tongue.
