In Jamaica Kincaid’s article, “On Seeing England for the First Time,” her disdain for England is blatantly obvious. Learning about a culture that she felt did not pertain to her frustrated her growing up. She also felt that it was wrong of them to be, in a sense, worshipping the people who were rewarded for creating the slave trade. Kincaid felt no real connection with England, yet was forced to learn about it anyways. If English were to become our global language, do you think this mentality would resonate with those who would have to learn it? What kind of tension would this create for our global economy? How would you feel if forced to learn about not only a culture that did not pertain to you, but an entire language? And finally, do you see having a global language as a positive or negative thing for our world?
