College education is indispensable to the future development of the young people,so it is of vital importance.
There is no denying that many people who did not go to college have achieved great success.
But if you ask them,they will say that if they had had the chance,they would also have chosen to go to college,for college education never contradicts success.
While it is true that many people who did not go to college have achieved great success,it is also true that many people,no,more people who had received college education have made even greater success.
Going to college can not guarantee success,but not going to college would be a big regret.
College education can help enrich our knowledge,but more important,it prepares us,though preliminarily,for entering the society and serving the society in the future.
Both views that college education can be a solution to everything and that going to college is meaningless are incorrect.
As is known to all,the Chinese-speaking population is very close to the English-speaking population in the world,but English has a much broader scope than Chinese in terms of geological distribution.
As the most influential language in the world,English has long established its dominant place in such fields as science and technology,entertainment and cross-cultural communication.
The influence of Chinese is mainly confined to China and Southeast Asian countries,but along with the economic takeoff of China,an increasing number of foreigners have been learning this ancient language.
Obviously,the economic development of a country can promote the spread of its language which in turn enhances its economic development.
We would like to have more people from other countries study Chinese,thus increasing their understanding of China,of the Chinese people and of Chinese culture,which could help avoid many misunderstandings.
As is known to all,English is unparalleled by any other languages in terms of influence.Besides,an increasing number of people are aware of the importance of learning English.
In this context,English has,in fact,already become a global language;thereby it’s quite unnecessary to take the trouble to ｃｒｅａｔｅ another world language.
Leaving aside the issue whether there is the possibility of creating a new global language,learning and mastering any one of the existing languages is nothing easy at all.
We start to learn English from primary school,but even after we have graduated from college,most of us are still unable to speak it.What does this situation suggest to us?
This shows fully convincingly that mastering a language is nothing easy at all.It needs the right environment for leaning it and requires years of accumulation.
Today,it is estimated that there are about 6,000 languages spoken in the world.However,many of these languages are spoken by an increasingly small number of speakers.
Nearly half of the languages spoken in the world are considered endangered.One of theprincipal causes of this is the rise of English as a global language.
English is increasingly the language of international entertainment as well as technology,especially information technology,for 75%of all internet websites are in English.
English is a“killer language”that is forcing out the use of smaller languages.
It’s true that languages are disappearing at an increasingly rapid rate,which is undoubtedly tragic,but it’s entirely unfair to put all the blame on the English language.
As a regional language,English has indeed caused the disappearance of many other smaller languages,but we should bear in mind that English is only one of the 10 ｏｒ so regional languages.
I believe that rather than creating a new global language,we should encourage more and more people to study English well,which might be the most practical way of doing things.
Compared with learning one’s own mother tongue,the process of learning any one foreign language well seems to be especially hard and long.
The best way to learn a foreign language is to go work ｏｒ study for a few years in a country where this foreign language is the mother tongue of the people there.
