It has been estimated that out of the 6,000 or so languages in use today, people around the world will gradually reduce the number of languages needed to communicate as well as the form in which they are communicated. By 21ΟΟ there may only be 600 active languages. Many scientists predict that two major changes will occur over time:
• There will be fewer languages.
• Languages will be easier
Despite using fewer languages, communication will become easier, as many people will be able to speak one language effectively while maintaining their own more simplified native language within their work and personal spaces.
