    English will survive for at least the next hundred years. The disadvantage of languages that don’t use the Latin or Roman letters is great.

    I think that if they ever hope to make the use of their languages more wide spread all over the world they need to adopt the letters. Using characters that take years to learn will keep their language to themselves.

      You made a great point that most of the languages don’t use Roman letter which is an upper hand for English 😀

      But we can’t neglect the Chinese Language which stands very near to English in terms of it’s usage on Internet.

      Thanks for your valuable input 🙂

      I was about to say the same thing. Let’s take as an example the Indonesians, they have an incredible twitter presence, but they tweet with Latin letters.

        Yeah you’re right buddy 🙂
        So English will still be the highest used Language on Internet, but still we can’t neglect the other languages which are growing more rapidly than English.

        Happy Blogging 😀
