Comment on the following statement:
| Lots of people would like to have one language on our planet. However, scientists think that having only one language is a disaster. |
What is your opinion? Do you agree with this statement?
Some people say that one language for everyone on earth would be perfect, whereas others do not agree. They consider it boring and a great loss.
I think that having one language would not be a really good idea. First of all, every language reflects some traits of nation characters that speaks it. It would be a pity to lose them. Second, since we are all different we need different languages to express ourselves. One language can not contain all features of thousands of unique personalities. Having one language also would be boring. People probably would not learn new languages and cultures.
At the same time there are people who say that if we had one language, we would communicate more easily. We would not have to learn additional languages and save a lot of time for doing other things. The world would be more open for everyone.
In my opinion these people have a point. Speaking one language would make communication easier. Nevertheless, we would lose a lot of interesting cultural aspects. We would not have the joy of learning other languages and understanding other people better.
In conclusion I would like to say that despite of some problems connected with learning languages, people should keep learning them to understand other cultures better. Thus, it will enrich their own cultures as well.
