Travel and tourism has contributed to the economy and growth of many countries and made English as the widely spoken language. It is believed the English will be adopted as the only language to be spoken across the world. Will it not be beneficial for everyone? In this essay we will discuss the merits and demerits of having a single global language.
To begin with, a common global language can help us to communicate with everyone easily. Because of effective communication, there will be an upward growth in international trade. Furthermore, this will enable us to understand the various cultures that exists in the world as it will destroy all the language barriers.
On the other hand, there are some disadvantages also. Firstly, it will pose a threat to the cultures across the globe. Less use of the regional language will eventually lead to its extinction. The fun of knowing a culture is to understand the history of its language and traditions. An extinct language means a loss of a unique culture. This will ultimately lead to a decrease in tourism. Secondly, it will of great difficulty for the non-native English speakers to communicate. If every form/paper/speech will be in English, non-English speakers will not be able to contribute to it.
To conclude, even though there are advantages of having a common global language such as facilitation of international trade and understanding different cultures with ease. Some will benefit with this. But, there are bigger disadvantages like extinct cultures and difficulty in communication for native language speaker which cannot be ignored.
