Top Five

It has been estimated that roughly 90 percent of all existing languages may become extinct within the next century due to colonization and globalization.  Native language is more than a means of communication; it is an essential component of one’s collective and individual identity and provides a sense of belonging and community.

In a well-written four- to five-page paper, address the following:

  1. Think for a moment about what life would be like with English as the only language spoken around the globe. What would you miss the most? Think about five things you love about other cultures and explain how these things would be impacted by a loss of native language.
  2. Think for a moment about what life would be like if English were extinct.  What would you miss the most?  Think about five things you love about knowing English and explain how these things would be impacted by a loss of English.
  3. Compare your responses for a and b.  Which language loss is more significant and why?
  4. Critically reflect on all you have read and responded to this week and record any questions you want to have answered about language learning in a global context or around the world.  Explain what you need to know personally in order to teach English language learners (ELLs).
