  • Very useless to have over 6,000 languages

    1. Waste of brain capacity
    we only use about 10% of our brain. So we should really be use
    ing it wisely. I am sure you will agree! There are more useful things in life than languages. Like science and maths. How are the new generation expected to learn, invent and discover new things if languages are taking up a big wad of the space.

    One global language, like english would be more useful for more than one reason. I could list 50. But i only put one above.

  • Esperanto - a common language for us all.

    I am in favor of an auxiliary language, for international communication. Such a language exists - Esperanto. It is a planned language which belongs to no one country or group of states. Esperanto does not aim to replace the world's rich linguistic heritage. Indeed, wider use of the planned international language Esperanto would help to preserve the smaller languages.

    Esperanto may not be perfect, but I've used it successfully in Africa, South America and Europe, and it does the job.

  • A Single Gloabalized Language would Improve Life

    If there was to be a single global language that all the world's citizens would have the ability to communicate easily with individuals from different countries thus creating more equality. If the world was better able to understand each other than there would likely be a reduced amount of conflict because there would be no loss of communication when being translated. A single global language would also prove to be more efficient in the global economy because the worlds businesses and corporations would be better able to communicate.

  • Yes to a Global language!

    Using one global language to communicate would improve life in the work field. It would be easier to simply understand one another if everyone had at least one language that was known all around the world.

    For instance, every country has their own language because of cultural differences and background but in school they are taught another language to be able to communicate with someone of another ethnicity if they needed to. I am an American English student who is learning Spanish, but what if I wanted to travel to Germany and did not known German? I would have to take another foreign language course.

    But, if there were ONE language that we were all taught to speak in school ALONG WITH the language we are accustom to, then everyone in the world would be able to better communicate.

  • Humanity's next step

    The advent of a global language would lead to world wide communication, countries could become united and work to further the human species rather than work to compete with other nations. Inter species rivalry is seen in many animals such as deer and apes when mating to ensure that the best genes possible are passed on to the next generation. This, however is unnecessary in a species of higher intelligence. Especially not the most intelligent species in the world. Cultural diversity places is an unnecessary clasp on furthering our species. Tradition for traditions sake is very similar to hating for the sake of hating. Very illogical.

  • Beneficial for global peace

    Most of the wars are because of not having proper communication between nations. Countries such as USA and Canada usually have very good relationship partially because of having adequate mutual understanding of each other. This understanding between nations can be achieved when the nations and not only the intellectuals are able to communicate with each other directly.

  • Enough is enough!

    Millions of dollars and million of hours the global community should spend on learning different languages. Most of the wars and conflicts are because of not having proper communications between nations. Countries with the same languages such as USA, UK, Australia and Canada usually have very good relationships. Having a unique universal language is inevitable and will happen sooner or later. It is a question why not have it right now.

  • It will improve life

    If everyone in the world spoke the same language,communication among us would be much easier and we all could express ourselves much clearer.Misunderstanding between languages would be prevented.Sometimes translators can be wrong as some words cannot be translated directly.It would be simple deciding which language to get everyone to learn.

  • A Global Language Would Be Beneficial

    The idea that one country is better than another just because they speak one language would be forgotten. Everyone could get along and maybe even the wars would fade away, eventually. Also, communication would no longer be a problem. Business, travel, and trade would be much easier because we can all talk to each other easily.

  • One language is a bad idea

    If everyone speaks one language that basically encourages people to forget their roots and even part of their culture! IMAGIN IF YOU DIDN'T KNOW YOUR OWN IDENTITY!!! There are approximately 6,500 languages still alive and imagination all those 6,499 languages disappearing and one of them is yours so I think there should not be one language on earth!

  • Why there shouldn't be a global language

    There should not be a global language because there would be no cultural diversity if we all spoke the same language. No new ideas would be thought of and life would be very boring. Imagine you and your family want to go out to eat and you go to an Indian restaurant and all the food choices are the same as something you can get at a normal restaurant. This is what would happen if there was a global language

  • It will never work.

    While it seems like it would be nice to have a common international language that everyone could use, language is almost always linked to culture, and different dialects of the world language would certainly develop. This is already happening to English, where speakers from England or the US would have a very hard time understanding what they say in Singapore, even though they are speaking English. So, the global language would just fragment, and it wouldn't be a global language any more.

  • NO GLOBAL LANGUAGE

    If you are a true member of society you would not agree with global language. If world language was true than we would all be the same and we would have a boring world. My collegue Scorpion Remmington and his brother Flash McLovingit have studied the affects on a city that had to learn the language of Njerep. This is the spoken language of Nigeria. All of the inhabitants of village 69 were all similar and culture was loss. So remember kids stay in school and do not support a global language for a better future for our children and generations to come.

  • Why there shouldn't be a global language.

    There should not be a global language because it would take away from the individuality of the differing countries and their diverse cultures. The world would be bland and if everyone was the same, new ideas and inventions ( I would think) would stagnate. The diverse groups of people in the world are what makes the human race what we are.

  • Having the same language won't make world a peaceful place

    There were many wars between people speaking the same language - Tutsi and Hutu in Rwanda, Croatians and Serbians in Yugoslavia etc.
    You know, it won't work at all.
    I don't want to live in a world without any diversity.
    The fact we have so many languages makes the world beautiful.
    We should try to preserve as many languages as we can.

  • Humans Should Be Able to Get Along Anyway

    One global language would be nice to have. However, humans come from diverse ethnic backgrounds and many cultures. A single global language leads to homogeneity as opposed to differentiation. Verbal understanding would be better, but the diversification of ideas would cease. Darwin's theory of evolution preaches diverse species survive whereas ones that can't adapt fail. Humans need diverse languages in order to move forward with our society in a positive way.

  • Losing our cultures

    With a global language most of people will lose their cutlers. A language can mean a lot to a family with out there language there family might have a different meaning. Yes the family with still always be close and still be a family but their language might have made them what they are.

  • There should be no global language.

    Our language is our identity to tell people where we come from and yes we could not change the worlds language because to learn it it would be hard and it takes more time learn people It's not a good idea to try and make people speak on language. It would be the same argument for every country. France could say that they want the world to speak French or the British could say that they want the world to speak English thus the music would be boring because all the music has one language and we also like different languages music.

  • No to global language!

    We dont need a global language because we have translators. Translators will go exstinct just like the dinosaurs did if we have a global language. It will also diminish cultural diversity, which won't allow people to be who they are or be proud of what language they speak because they will be speaking another language.
