Hi Gerard everyone !
I have also found that very interesting article. I posted it and cancelled it when I read Gérard's message.
It bothers me that a language or a culture could dominate the others and the world.
Every language and every culture enriches the world in its own way and should be respected. Anyway I agree that some languages spread ideas better than others.I will also add how important it is to keep alive as many languages and cultures as possible !
