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.
