I think some other languages are dying when more and more people study several common languages.So what do you think、
Languages are used to communicate with others. We will not give up our mother tongue. And we study common languages only to learn more about the world.
Actually I think mother tongue is important. The world will be boring and simple if we say the same language.So let's study our own language well ,then find interest and benifits in learning other languages.Thanks.
It's essential for some enhancments to your financial bottom line, if you apply English in the right places. Languages die off, it's just the way it is.
The problem with English speakers- at least in the United States- is that there are so many that never bother to learn another language simply because English is already so widely spoken worldwide. I'm not sure what that is and it is an interesting phenomenon. I suppose if I weren't a native English speaker, then I would have to learn the language whether I wanted to or not. This is probably because so many English speakers EXPECT others to learn our language rather than the other way around. That is really saddening for a language lover like myself. Being a pragmatist, I have to have something USEFUL or I will quickly lose interest. So this is one of the reasons that I quit German so quickly is that I learned that most Germans speak English. That is true for other European languages as well. If I were to travel to Germany and try to speak German, chances are that the person would speak English back with me. So what would be the purpose since language is all about communication anyway? So, I'm working on Indian languages and Russian because I know that there are many in those countries that do not know English. I'll give the Russian Federation about 10 more years and English will be just as common there as it is in European countries.
I think it individual, no one expects anyone to learn anything, but when confronted with the inability to comunicate where comunication is nessesary, it defaults to the person able to bridge that communication gap
English has taken such strong rooting, most foriengers by virture of exposure to English can bridge that gap, albeit with differing degress of effectiveness;giving the impression English speakers don't care to learn.
Language learning is hard, it is just the path of lease resistance call it LAZY..
