The world would be fine when we speak the same language. Is this true?

Today the world is interconnected and there is a growth of travel. We need to examine the concept of using a universal language.

There are some benefits in travel and business, but a common language is a threat to the culture the identity. There are no language barriers and global Travel is easy and accessible. Moreover, there is no misunderstanding in the business. Furthermore, in areas of conflict with multiple troops from different countries, the work is easier because all the people involved are speaking one language. Language reflects a culture and by speaking it we can project a cultural history and identity. Moreover, the changes in language reflect the history and culture of a society. By losing a language we lose our culture.

Additionally, the language has a link to the way of thinking of the people. People speaking multiple languages can alter their thought process easily. The world speaking a single language will eliminate diversity in thinking and also, threaten future development.​_

In conclusion, a universal language makes the world easier but it will not be a better place. It leads to loss of identity, culture, and diversity. These losses outweigh the gains it brings.
