Chinese English (chinglish?) may well become an international language for those that need to communicate internationally but I don't think it will be spoken in the home or in places that have their own national language anytime soon. People are very committed to their own languages and feel that changing their language compromises their cultural identity. Quebec has passed laws to keep themselves french speaking and to prevent themselves from becoming English speaking. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charter_of ... h_Language
Yes, but if what you said was true then they wouldn't need to pass the laws to enforce it.
They only passed those laws because they were afraid they would become English speaking.
As a side we have a competition called the Eurovision song contest, (for anyone who knows what it is, I'm not a fan but I have a young daughter who loves that sort of thing.)
Basically it's a Europe wide song contest, one entry from each nation. Over time the rules have changed, but the rule used to be ' you must sing in a language that is native to your country.'
A few years ago they dropped that rule and certain countries were outraged and said they would never sing in anything but their native language (France and Germany were among them.)
So come this year - France, Germany and Italy all performed in English. In fact out of 26 countries, over half performed in English, only 3 countries historically were allowed to (England, Ireland and Malta).
