Would it be better | if we all spoke | the same language?

50%

No - different languages offer depth, colour and personality to the way we communicate.

50%

Yes - it would save time and effort, and prevent misunderstanding.

50%

Maybe - but sometimes it can be difficult to express a complex idea in just one way.

50%

It depends - on how you define language as many of us could be considered multilingual without knowing.

    I think that all the different languages we all speak reflect who we are as people; they are outward expressions of our individuality.

    The variety of different languages makes the world an interesting place. We should focus on making better translation tools instead.

    Having different languages enables possibilities to communicate and share different experiences, if we understand a specific language.

    I think it depends as we are all in a sense multilingual. Although I think having different languages is good for the brain and people.

    No, it would just be lazy. Having different culture and languages is beautiful, learing a language can help to understand other cultures
