Hi, thank you for taking time to read my essay and help me improving my skill by leaving inspiring feed backs.
Question: every year several languages die out. Some people think it is not important that life will be easier if there are less languages.
It reports that every year some languages die out, which seems to be an inevitable process during globalization. Toward this situation, some people welcome it with the reason that fewer languages will make lives much easier. Well, I feel sorry for their such short sights. Frankly, I do think a language's disappearance is a tragedy not only for people who spoke it, but also for our whole world.
First of all, language is a critical part of culture which play an important role in preserving, spreading and passing on culture generationally. In other word, if a language extinct, the relative culture will uproot soon without vessel to carry it which more or less, loss national identity for such groups of people. For example, I met some second and third immigrant Chinese family in New Zealand, some of them can not speak Chinese at all and do not even remember the date of Chinese New Year. Except their appearance, you can not pick up any Chinese influence from their thought and behalf, which seems Chinese culture totally broke at their generation.
What's more, language is a treasure from ancient's wisdom, which is not only used to describe stuff but also to express vision of the world and life. I remember when I traveled in New Zealand, what impressed me most was nearly everyone can speak some Maori language and lots of people(both Maori and non-Maori people) even attend classes to learn it deeply which they seldom can use in their daily life. They revalue Maori culture, after being unvalued and abandoned for decades. So learning Maori language becomes a key way for them to understand and preserve this culture.
Well, it is kinda true that less languages can make lives easier because people can communicate easily. On the other hand, the world will be blankness, if everyone speaks the same language, thinks similarly, behaves in the same way.
As conclusion, it may be a nature process that some languages died out or are coming to an end. Well, what we can do is to make effects to preserve and revalue as many as we can. Otherwise,we may not only loss some languages but also loss some culture.
