Abi90 2 / 3 Jan 28, 2014 #1Hi,I'm new to this forum. I'm very much looking forward to have feedback on my essay. Please help me.Some people believe that there should be a single official international language. Others believe that there should be more than one such languages.Discuss both the views and give your opinion.Official international language has always been a debatable issue when the people are expressing their views about different international languages. Some says unique official language would be beneficial for the people and nations where as others contradicts with this idea. Both the views has it's own merits and demerits as outlined below.An official language is essential to communicate with the people across the world, having only one such language serves this purpose effectively. Considering the example of international summits, where the delegates from different countries have the opportunity to discuss their thoughts on any prevailing issue in the world. In such cases , language which is used by all the officials should be unique so that there is no situation where the people face difficulties in understanding the topic or situation.In addition to that, people who wants to visit different countries on their own interest may also have problems if the language in that nation is not known to him or her.For instance , a group of friends who are on their holiday trip to a place out of their motherland can enjoy and explore the things more over there by having a proper guide who speaks a common language than his native.Having the people who are speaking common language also helps in attracting tourists from different countries which in turn increases nation's economy.On the other hand, there is a school of thought that believes different languages have different identities and they speaks about the culture and tradition. Having only one official international language may erode such things.To illustrate, there are some some chantings in an Asian language , which speaks about the origin, rituals and the tradition. It gives the great sense of nativity if we one can read those as it is than in any converted versions.There is also a concern that, having exposed to foreign language much more may put in local languages in endanger.So the people may oppose the view of unique official international language.Having explained the merits and demerits of both the views, in my opinion I believe it is better to have unique official language by giving enough importance tolocal languages.
