The development of tourism contributed to English becoming the most prominent language in the world. Some people think this will lead to English becoming the only language to be spoken globally. What are the advantages and disadvantages to having one language in the world?

It is thought by some people that English, which is now the most widely spoken
language
Suggestion
languages
in the
world
, may
one
day predominate over all other languages and result in their eventual disappearance. Having
one
language
would certainly aid understanding and economic
growth but
Accept comma addition
growth, but
there will
also
be some drawbacks.
One
evident benefit to having
one
global
language
is that it would enable greater understanding between countries.
In other words
, if everyone spoke
one
language
, there would be complete understanding between not only countries but all people throughout the
world
which would promote learning, the flow of information and ideas. Another reason that
one
language
would be advantageous is that it would help economic growth. With all people speaking the same
language
, there will be less barriers and
therefore
trade would flourish between countries, resulting in a healthier
world
economy.
On the other hand
, there are obvious disadvantages to having only
one
global
language
.
Firstly
, it would mean that all other languages would eventually disappear and, along with them, their cultures. The diversity of cultures is
one
of the joys
this
world
has to offer. Each culture is unique
with
Suggestion
in
its own way of life and own perspectives of the
world
which would all be lost if there were only
one
language
.
Secondly
, it would result in the collapse of tourism because there would be no reason to travel for pleasure and interest if all countries had the same
language
and similar cultures.
This
would devastate many countries
economically
Suggestion
economies
that rely on tourism as a source of income. In conclusion, while there are plus points
to
Suggestion
for
having
one
global
language
, too much would be lost
as a result
. Maintaining local languages and cultures should be prioritised to ensure a rich
world
heritage for future generations.
