Comments:
Nai Imaniah says "...English can create peace and unity among people in the world." all this because English has an important influency in the world so it is used and spoken by the majority of people ( this means that it is an universal language that could be use to have better relationships bettwen countries and the human kind too) and I agree on that but I also have to disagree in the fact that she in times overvalued the power of that language and I meant with this that peace and unity are achieveble by doing things and not by talking them about trough this we could actually have a better world where everyone had the same oppourtunities to succed.
