Is English out-dating? Why such trend in speaking and messaging? What’re the side effects?The three questions I asked in the title of this thread are about English in this age, which is mostly spoken by school and colleges students due to their excess spending of time in Facebook, WhatsApp, Hike and other chatting sites.
1. Do you think English is out-dating?
I think English is at its place. The grammar, books and teaching pattern also not changed; however student's style of reading and speaking changed.
2. Why such trend in speaking and messaging?
I think such trend is due to excess use of mobiles, internet and social-networking-chat sites which are highly recommended by parents nowadays.
3. What're the side effects?
The side effect is nothing but the excess of use of slang/chat languages by small children in classroom and also in their writing pattern.
Members please elaborate your views in this regard so that parents and teacher get understand why English is out-dating by their children.
