In his article, “Why a Global Language?”, David Crystal argues that “within little more than a generation, we have moved from a situation where a world language was a theoretical possibility to one where it is an evident reality”. He continues on to say “…all the signs suggest that this global language will be English”. Do you agree with Crystal that English will be the global language? If not, what language do you think it could be? Why? How would having any global language affect your daily life? Also, in your opinion, do the pros Crystal mentions outweigh the cons, or vice versa?
