In the 21st century the concept of globalization has narrowed the world from a global village to a global family. But still, ‘language’ is a barrier when making the above concept of ‘global family’ into a reality. When the practical aspect of globalization is taken into consideration, it is very important to have mutual understanding among the different cultures and customs. This can only be achieved through a positive exchange of language. Languages bridge countries and their people. For example, for speaking the Japanese language meaningfully, a good understanding of the Japanese people and their culture is required. This is because language is always connected with people’s feelings and their living. This applies to all languages.
