Should Germany introduce English as second official language? (like e.g. Canada)
Since the breakdown of the Berlin Wall in 1990, Germany has been undergone a tremendous transition due to globalization. In less than 20 years, Germany has turned from a homogeneous into a Multi-Culti society with about 20% of people (15 Mio) with immigration background.
Among various global impacts; many Germans complain about "Denglish" (Mix up German with English words) and want to return to pure spoken German.
However is language actually not more than just an artificial construct with the actual purpose of communication?
Shouldn't we introduce English as second official language to increase global communication?
