  • We must have..!!

    We have thousands of languages around the globe. It would be pretty difficult to learn all the languages in order to communicate with the people. There must be a global language to have better communication among the people. The point of selecting a global language is good but the point of debate is which one??

  • No Need For Translations

    Currently, there are over 6,000 languages. Google translate, the world's trusted translator, covers 104, and 14 are still under development. Its been 10 years since the release of this translator, and it only works with 118, including the ones in development. How about the remaining 5,000 and more languages? How long would it take to get that far? WIth one global language, learned by all, there will be no need for a translator, no need to continue funding that, and we all can understand each other perfectly. Yes, languages are a small but important part of cultures, but we don't abolish cultures. Like how we translate the traditional celebrations, food and costumes from all over the world, tradition is maintained.

  • Yes we should for many reasons her are all of them:

    Because I said so and yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes

  • We should have a global language

    Because people have to buy the translator which costs money and some people can not buy the translator so they can not enjoy other countries.And some people can also not afford money to study more languages so there should be one global language which should be the opinion of every country

  • Voting For One Earthen Language

    It's important because:
    1. We should think planet Earth is our only home therefore we need one worldwide language that speaks or represent for all of us
    2. We should start to think about voting or creating one language for Earth people so that we can understand each other and help each other better. Also, we will be able to face with other neighbor planets in one voice (I mention this because we have so many languages, English seems to be the most popular international language right now but still not many can learn or don't have enough money to learn it. Therefore, the third world countries mostly are the left-out people if they can't communicate with us or in- reversed)
    2. United Nations should be a place to plan for voting or creating a new language for all Earth citizens. Also, voting for the one representative in each nation to communicate with United Nations in case if other beings ever they come to Earth. This way, we would have one united voice and act accordingly with the laws as planned. We would avoid lots of chaos and calm
    3. We need United Nations to prepare for all learning and sharing with our new universal friends (Aliens)
    4. New born children on Earth will learn this global language but keep their native language(s). Learning this language should be free to all.
    5. Learning this new language can be used with technologies. The translation to other languages should be free and easy to access globally.

  • It helps technological progress

    If we all spoke one language it would be much easier to communicate and also bring together the great minds of our society to discuss all sorts of technology and put it together. That way our technological progress would be much faster and we can stop all of our modern day problems.

  • Good Idea for our world

    Having one language in the world would give us an advantage of being able to communicate to everyone in the world. Some wars started because of an element of misunderstanding. If we had one language we could prevent war. Languages shape the way we think, different language speakers think differently, if we spoke the same language we would be able to understand each other. Therefore preventing conflict and civil war. People say the it takes away our culture, but there is no reason why we cant also keep our existing languages.

  • It is possible to have culture & peace

    The reason people fight is because they dont understand. They dont understand why we are all so different, and are scared of this, triggering their first defence to the unknown…fight it
    culture is incredibly important, and we should preserve it. Although, many cultures are opposed to one another, if we had a language that everyone could speak (to some degree) we could learn to accept one another for who we are and keep culture and peace

  • It unites humanity

    I speak 6 different languages and still learning. I can tell you we need one language because this is the only way we can understand each other better and see each other better. Diffrent languages are causing divisions and is the major problems of our world today . I would rather forgo my culture for a truly world unity.

  • It's a good idea

    By having one global language we can communicate and strengthen our bonds with other countries. Most wars started with some element of misunderstanding, so by creating one global language we can possibly prevent world war 3. People say that it'll take someone's culture away but no one said they can't keep their own language. This way everyone can be bio lingual

  • It is just illogical

    It is completely illogical to make the entire world decide on, and learn a single language. Fist of all what language would we choose? It would be unfair to the people that speak all the languages that aren't chosen because there culture would be destroyed, not to mention the years of work it would take to learn, ad integrate this new language.

  • What is the point? (submitted by aashvi shah)

    REASON 1:
    If there was one global language, then what would it be? How would people agree to learn a new language?
    The concept of a common global language raises the question of which language we would use. Most experts agree that the answer depends largely on practical factors that could shift with changes in political and economic power over time. That's because language acquisition is almost always driven by necessity – there simply has to be a good reason for people to bother to learn a new one. Each and every citizen of the world would have to decide which language, meaning there would be countless arguments and even riots.

    For example, Esperanto is a language that was created in 1887 specifically to be a common second language. However, with only 2 million speakers worldwide, it seems unlikely to become a viable form of global communication because Esperanto was never the language of a politically or economically dominant nation or group.

    REASON 2:
    Individuality
    The beauty of language is when it's spoken by their natives, and the world is very beautiful with different languages. Every language has its own charm, beauty and emotion. If there is one global language, our own individuality would be diminished. We won't recognise ourselves. Years of cultures, traditions, and building of communities would be thrown away.
    Sure, we could have one global language as well as our mother tongue. However, we will tend to forget our mother tongue as we may be using that global language daily. I, for one, have started to forget tit-bits of Guajarati as I speak English very often.

    REASON 3:
    Language is a fundamental and inseparable part of the culture of every nation, community, ethnic group, and any other social formation. It is the modus for the communication of individuals, and it facilitates every single human activity. A universal language would be harmful or less desirable than the unique, culturally distinct languages we see today. Referring back to the historical background of humanity, numerous cases show how a dominant country, through its power, imposed a cultural supremacy over other states; thus, spreading its official language.

  • Why? Why do we need a Global Language?

    My answer is no because language is a fundamental and inseparable part of the culture of every nation, community, ethnic group, and any other social formation. It is the modus for the communication of individuals, and it facilitates every single human activity. A universal language would be harmful or less desirable than the unique, culturally distinct languages we see today.

  • It rules out cultureism.

    Without different languages like french Spanish, everyone wouldn't have identity. I am Indian and speak Gujarati but if i didn't speak Gujarati and only spoke English many cultures wouldn't have depth or dimension. Identity is who you are and without languages and only one global language what would the world become?

  • Already tried it!

    Esperanto. Look it up. It's an artificial language devised in 1887 as an international medium of communication, based on roots from the chief European languages. It retains the structure of these languages and has the advantage of grammatical regularity and ease of pronunciation. People from Asia had much difficulty learning this language, as their language was created on a different structure.
