Anonymous:You mean, my thoughts.
hmm... This is for a debate. My team has to speak of the topic:
"English Language is not needed to Sri Lanka"
Sri Lanka is a country which speaks in Sinhala, but the opposition team tells that English is needed.
So, I want to know how English is not useful as a global language. I think that English is uncertain and it has different pronounciation which may confuse people & now what I want is your ideas please..
First of all, I am neither a debater nor a native english speaker. And what's more, I am totally a newbie at this site. Still, I have a few ideas that I'd like to share with you, my friend.
Your title is "English is not useful in Sri Lanka"; so, I'll divide this topic into two broad ideas:
1) Why English is needed to be learnt by non-native speakers of other countries?
2) Why English is not needed to be learnt by non-native speakers of other countries?
P.S : Well, I am just sharing a few simple facts here - it's up to you on how to process and debate these ideas further. and yeah,some of these ideas might be inappropriate - i am truly sorry for that! all the best, Navanjana!

You said "if we dont knw how to communicate in English " .
That means we should to lean English language..
