Thanks all! Good suggestions.
Here is the revised version, any other suggestions?
There are many
languages disappear every year. Some people think that it is not important because life will become easier and more efficient if we have fewer languages to communicate
. However, I do not
agree this opinion and I think we should protect every language from extinct.
The main reason that we should protect the languages which is dying out every year is the language brings its own culture. The main reason why we should make efforts to keep languages alive is that language is the base for oneís cultural authenticity. The culture would not exist without the language
. It can preserve the culture and strengthen the ethnic cohesion. For example, in my hometown,
there are lots of old songs in Cantonese about the traditional events which can bring people think of our culture once hear the songs. There are many traditional songs in Cantonese that vividly describe the authentic feature of our culture
. Besides, we would like to speak Cantonese with our special assent which can make us feel more close to the others. Moreover, maintain the language diversity could help to promote international peace and understanding. We also can learn different languages and cultures to enrich our mind.
On the other hand, it is true that the communications would become easier if all of us use one language in the world. We do not
need to spend time to learn a new language and we can understand the others more easily. As a result, we can have more energy to keep pace to the new technology in the modern world. However, I cannot image how the world would become if only one language remain in the future. The cultures may be damaged. For example, nowadays, not all the people can recognize the ancient symbols carved on the stone thousand years ago. So we cannot fully understand the culture in the past.
In conclusion, we should protect the language which is dying out to preserve its cultures and strengthen the ethnic cohesion. Moreover, we can learn one common language to improve our communications with others
in all over the world
from other countries and make the life easier.
