It should be the responsibility of whoever is entering a country to try and learn the native language.

That is in no way connected to this topic.

The topic is about Americans being expected to learn Hindi since Indians are learning English.

anybody can speak English if they want to, trying to force it is dumb.

We Americans are better than the savages who speak that south asian talk. They are a huge waste of resources and the real reasons why there is alot of confusion in this world. We only speak english in this country. My man President Trump said it himself. #Trump=truth #Trumpislyfe

That was terrible spelling, grammar, logic and basic reason. Hindi is as important as English, French, Spanish, Mandarin or any other language. It is spoken by fewer people, but it is still culturally important. English itself has no more inherent value, it is simply the defacto language as England colonized a large part of the world.

As to your racist tripe about scamming people, there are identity thieves all over the world. That's an unfortunately side effect of the current technology for banking and computing. To attach a nationality or race to simply shows your bias. While I will not deny some scammers are in India, others are in the US, Africa or any number of other nations.

in case you are too stupid to understand, that was really racist.

Wow, what an utter lack of any intelligent sentiment. For the crime of not destroying other cultures their language doesn't matter? Also, why did you feel the insult was warranted?

2 years, 5 months ago

Noone gives a shit about hindi. if they wanted hindi to be a global language, they shouldve colonised a bunch of different lands to make it de facto instead of f***ing cows.

Hindi is not influential on a global scale, but I would disagree that it isn't important. A language is very important to that culture. Just because it is not important to you doesn't mean it is not important at all.

2 years, 5 months ago

Hindi isnt influential. Hindi IS NOT important. English is a much better option.

2 years, 5 months ago

so your argument is that they should learn your language, which is foreign to them, instead of English which is foreign to them?

but English is used all over the world and Hindi is used pretty well only in India. English is by far the more useful language to know if you don't live in a Hindi area.

No actually the thing was.. India has I guess the biggest diversity of cultures and all people have different languages.. But a vast majority are hindi speaking people... The main problem was with the south Indians.. As the British had ruled over India so many of them knew English not hindi so it was decided that while hindi would be the national language English will be used in legal proceedings and conversation between States.. But now I guess it must a** difficult to learn hindi as it is for English.. Coz there mother tongue is tamil and both the languages are alien to them.. So they should learn hindi.. And I guess there was one more factor that is they respected the Britishers more than we Hindus and did not want to acknowledge our power..

Now that I've done a bit more research, I think I understand why English is used. English was the primary language in India until 1950, when the government started phasing English out in favor of Hindi. Now both are official languages. I do agree that legal proceedings should transition into being done in Hindi, but st least I get why they aren't now

Yep. I have to admit that I didn't know your legal process was in English. I assumed that they were carried out in your official language.

OK dear. Then I think your legal proceedings should be carried out in your official language. That is the point I was making. I'm obviously not in a position to dictate your legal policy though, so I will leave that to people in India, like you.

No dear.. The point is our national language is hindi but legal works are carried out in English..

Depends. If the official language is Hindi he absolutely can, but he would have to provide a translator. The same is true for English, Spanish, French, or whatever language is being used for legal proceedings.

well we all like England but even England has multiple areas where diff. languages are spoken. until recently u had to know English to be in America so it helped understanding with everyone and avoided confusion. this is not the case anymore.

if most of the world is learning English, should Americans have to learn most of the languages in the world?

and why is everyone forgetting England in this debate? they speak English too!

If Hindi spreads as a language used for international business, then I will agree at that point, but at present no. English has become the shared language in ugh of the world (for better or worse). Business is often conducted in English since it is often a shared language. Spanish and Japanese are also used depending on the area, but Hindi is not influential enough at present to force businessmen to learn it in order to do business in India. It probably won't be since at present Indian businessmen learn English to be able to compete on the international stage, negating the need for anyone to learn their language.

Not saying that one language is better than the other, just that one is more influential on the international stage at the moment.

You are mad. Indians learn english cause english is a way of communication in many parts of the world. Almost all europeans know a little bit of english. So in order to communicate with all those people, we learn english. Its an world wide language. But its not same for Hindi, Even I dont know Hindi. Hindi is just a way of communication only in India. An american tourist in india can stay in India without any need to learn Hindi. The hotel managers, guides, chefs, policemen , upper class working people, etc have a well knowledge of english. So Americans dont have to learn hindi. Instead americans learn Spanish or French.
