I would say both. It's nice for everyone to understand each other, but sometimes you want to speak amongst yourselves without letting another person know what you're saying.
Ah perhaps a cultural invasion. Language has a lot to do with a country's or cultures history. And if this were the case of one language spoken-hell it better not be English.
What exactly were you asking then?
Were you asking what if everyone was forced to speak one language?
What if there was only one language in the world?
Better off, the only difference it would make really is that we wouldn't have foreign language classes. As far as my knowledge goes.
Oh, and I heard that people who can speak Spanish (I don't know if this goes for any other language in general) get paid more money. So, if everyone spoke the same language then I guess people would just get paid equally.... I dunno. I'm just a kid. XP
It's really fun and cool to learn another language.
Though it is really hard for anyone to actually to understand how or why the language is how it is.
I thought about all the languages becoming as one language. It would be good for communication, like for school or career reasons.
But it takes the fun out of learning something new.
It would be convenient in that trade would be simpler, foreign relations would be simpler, and understanding people culturally would be easier. However, there is a significant cultural loss if everyone speaks the same language. Languages are important factors of a culture; they help to understand the people and their lifestyles. I believe that having a common language would be a good idea, as long as it doesn't erase others or rob people of their culture.
It's both beneficial and detrimental. Everyone will understand what others are talking about and communication will be easier and there MIGHT be fewer misunderstandings. However, the beauty of culture and diversity may not be entirely gone, yet it would lack a significant aspect.
it would still be the same idk
I think there is a negative and positive side to this. One we could all understand each other and lack of communication causes conflicts so eliminating that is good. However languages are pretty. I'm bilangual (and learning a third) and if suddenly there was only one language I would loose a defining part of me. Not very many people outside Eastern Europe speak Lithanian. And I think in that language and English so that would effect me negatively. Then again there would only be one language.
The world would be better off because then communication between people and countries would be better because we could all understand each other.
