Endangered Languages??? I can see that learning English would get you better opportunities. At the same time other languages are fading away....As an international language I think it's getting rid of other cultures. I don't like it....I would rather save a language and preserve it for the future.

It's a consequence of globalisation. Don't just blame English though! There are around 6900 languages spoken today around the world. However, thirty of them are spoken by over 60% of the world's population (4 billion people). The remaining 6870 languages are spoken by a combined total of only 2.5 billion. These languages tend to have only a small number speakers. As time passes, more and more of these languages will disappear.
