    Simplified English - for or against?

    I'm pretty sure that a simplified version of English should be taught. The simpler the language, the better communication will be between people, for current and future generations who are part of today's globalisation.

    Simplified English - for or against?

    I strongly believe that simplifying languages makes communication between people more primitive and facile. As long as English is an international language, it is senseless to use a simplified language to discuss serious and important things. We need language not only for everyday talking with friends, but also for our career and solid future. After all it should also be mentioned that language is carrier of culture which could be lost if nobody would understand classic English and use it's classic rules.

    I can see no reason for your two threads with opposite opinions unless you were simply preparing a writing assignment.

    Quite. I have merged the two threads.
