One language, one world
Do you think we will have one day a language that everybody will consider their first language?
Or will we still be different in this aspect?

My opinion: it is impossible because we have many cultural differences.
Every nation has its own values and the speech of people reflects these national values.
This is why we not only have to study new words but sometimes also fully immerse into a new system.

I've noticed that the more a person gets accustomed to this system, the better they speak.

What do you think?

With respect,
Your Maria.

I wholeheartedly agree ...

Humans, on the whole, seem to be driven to exclusiveness. Forming clubs with special insignia, dress code, and language. Just look at the diversity in dialects within any language in any old, densely populated country.

Admittedly globalisation, and in particular radio and TV have led to some homogenisation. But I still think that we'll never have one "world language", and that's a good thing, too.

Thank you so much for your answer, človek. I really appreciate your contribution to our discussion. And I agree that it is better to be a little bit different because then we can be more independent from each other. 😊
