is it important to know more than one language
Debate Rounds (2)
To sum up learning a new language has helped me a lot, because I am able to communicate with people outside the country It gives me better access to information, like in the internet, sometimes the things that I'm looking for are not in my mother language, so it's better to find it in English.
It is well-known that the knowledge of language nowadays is very important in any sphere of life. But all people just don't see and realize that their own native language is affected by the other ones.
First of all, it is clear that when person knows 2, 3 or 4 languages, he/she just can not know perfectly each. Why? It is logically clear that each language will affect to person's knowledge of another language. Such person sometimes can forget some words of mother tongue, but remember its translation in another language. In such cases person may stay in the gap and can lose, even though he/she knows many languages. I think, it is one of the most popular trouble in knowledge of several ones.
Second reason of why do I think that knowledge of several languages is problematic, it is because the knowledge of "BIG LANGUAGES" (such as English, Russian, Chinese etc.) is too affect to native languages. During the time many fundamental words of one language are changed by the words of another one. That is why there are many languages which disappeared. It is fact that during few centuries 5% of all languages vanished . Moreover, some scientists said that in 2100 the half of languages might disappear by being affected by another well-spread languages.
