Global language

  1. 1. You don't need long arms to embrace the world; you need English. Conversation exercise by Tatiana Medeiros
  2. 2. Imagine yourself in a world where globalization doesn´t exist. Information is scarce and other cultures are something to imagine. Brazilian books are the main source of research, therefore, your community has a public library where everybody has access to these sources. if something is scarce, there is not very much of it available.
  3. 3. Now, in this world, you discover that a global language is emerging, and in this way people will have access to a lot more information and cultures. But, there is a problem: this language is not the one that you learned as a child. So, you ´ll have to learn how to speak, read and write all over again. •How would you feel?
  4. 4. How do you feel about having ONE language to globalize the world? Are you for? Are you against?
  5. 5. 80% of the world´s electronically stored information is in English. English and globalization have spread hand in hand through the world. And, in the same way that the direction of the wind doesn't determine the sailor's destination, the language we speak will not determine our destiny.
  6. 6. By electing English as the world language, the history sentenced all non-English speaking countries to become the illiterate people of the coming future. Besides that, if English do become the global language, what is going to happen with our language? •Illiterate: someone who is illiterate has not learned to read or to write.
  7. 7. I think it´s a good idea to have a global language. Discuss about: Easy access to information New cultures Better education I think it´s a bad idea to have a global language. Discuss about: Losing your culture Losing your language Having to study all over again
