Language and Grammar

Language is the foundation of liberal arts studies. The ability to communicate ideas through words. With the Internet there is a greater demand for multilinguality. It is becoming increasingly more important to be at least bilingual. People prefer to use their native languages on the Intenet rather than English. Therefore, to facilitate better communication, it is more desirable for everyone to be functional in at least several languages in one language family or one language from each of several language families.

International Languages - Esperanto

There are no truly International languages. There can only be an international approach or attitude in the use of languages. The best approach for two or more cultures is to each use a neutral language that is not their native tongue. If both parties are compelled to use a second language then that approach serves as an equalizer. Esperanto serves this purpose well because it does not belong to one nation.
