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 people are all different and they need different languages to express themselves. 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.
Well, 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. The would would be less interesting but not open.
In conclusion, I would like to say that there are opposing views on this issue. At first sight it might seem as a big waste of time but in actual fact it brings a lot of pleasure and helps people understand other cultures better as well as enrich their own. Thus, I strongly believe that despite some challenges related to learning languages, people should keep mastering them.
