Another perspective for the “English-Only” argument was made from a family member of one of the students. She thinks if you are in America you should be speaking English and if students are learning another language in school it takes time away from other curriculum. During the San Francisco School Board meeting, many people shared their thoughts having all San Francisco public schools students become bilingual. Dr. Ling-chi Wang, a scholar and activist, shared that knowing a second language stimulates and enhances learning in other subjects. Another man mentioned how only knowing English places limits on his job (ie.
4. The Circumstantial Factor of Homesickness 4.1 Changes in Relationships “Moving physically away from one’s support network leads to changes in the relationships that had developed.” “All of the subjects stated that they developed relationships with others who were studying abroad, someone from either their own or another country” (p.12) Whereas developing relationships with people in the host country and having opportunities of L2 communication might “play an essential role in the development of L2 proficiency” (Goodwin & Natch, 1988, cited in Tajima, 2016, p.112), the new friendships can be cause homesickness since most new relationships that learners developed could be with people who cannot speak and understand their L1. Moreover, learners
The social isolation due to hearing loss and the lack of stimulation delivered through the ears to the brain are the major reasons for this connection. The people with untreated hearing loss are seen less healthy than those seeking the treatment. Emotions: A comparison of older adults using the hearing aids and the ones who are not, depict a significance difference in the general satisfaction and happiness in life. The people who did not treat their hearing loss issue were more likely to report sadness, depression, anxiety, worry, insecurity, less social activity and emotional turmoil. The major reason behind this is communication.
Different language communities have certain ways of talking that will set them apart from others and those differences are known as dialects. Dialects are not just accents but also grammar, vocabulary, syntax and common expressions used.One is able to identify and distinguish between different people, different ethnicities and races as people speak different languages. Each human belongs to a community which makes them speak a specific language and dialect that represent their community and differentiates them from others. Language connects people to their community as they are connected to people that speak the same
To such people I ask, then do people truly have control over their own mental health? The fact is, one always has more control on their own mental health than any external force. So no matter how difficult it can get, there is always a way to resist depression. Given these points, it is clear that isolation causes people to suffer from depression. Parental isolation, social isolation, and the refusal to try new things are all gateways to this awful disease.
THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING BILINGUAL Today, learning foreign language is one of the most important topics. In the globalized world being bilingual has a lot of advantages besides that learning a new language has become a necessity. Surfing on the Internet, talking to people from other countries making business trips easier may be considered as some of the advantages of being bilingual. According to some researches, learning a new language affects brain positively . American Association explained in a meeting which had organized by them in 2011 " People who do not speak a foreign language have a higher risk of developing Alzheimer's disease" (Vivahiba, 2014).
It happens often that a speaker of two languages to have some hand gestures when speaking a language and other gestures when speaking in a second language.

Let’s take for example the experience of Christoph Harbsmeier a multilingual German Sinologue who says in an interview in the French magazine Epok that “‘the influence of language on thought, how we are influenced ... in our ways of being and of feeling by our
Sparks, Ganschow, and Patton (2008) claimed that through provision of sufficient support, students with learning disabilities can improve in their foreign language learning. In this line, TOPPELBERG, et al (2013) mentions that quality of L2 input is of crucial importance in children with developmental disorders due to their deficits in many areas including communicative, discourse and pragmatic skills. Krapez (2010) also mentions that through using special pedagogical approaches or methods of training, and teachers’ high level of foreign language proficiency, students at-risk can succeed in learning certain foreign language skills. In support of this view, DiFino & Lombardino (2004) states that traditional methods which focused solely on memorization of lexicon and structures of a language aggravated language learning difficulties of students with learning disabilities. Therefore, appropriate alternations should be made to curriculums to allow students with learning disabilities to enter language programs by considering their special needs for

Interests matter in every conflict and the clash arises because of different point of views or opinions. This is how language creates conflict. Peace will be established when these questions will be answered, when these misunderstandings will be resolved and when the state of satisfaction will be
