When I look around me I see so many people whom are so similar Were the bulk coming from the International Schools We speak English in front of our friends and teachers We talk in Cantonese to our parents We take Mandarin French or even both as an additional language at school Many of us have Filipino domestic helpers hence our bit of exposure to Tagalog This is such a typical scenario that I have come to see it as my common interpretation of normality Then I think again I think for those whom are less worldly I think for those that have been less privileged Ranging from Kansas to Kenya and back to Kuala Lumpur smack in the middle of South East Asia I extend my scope to a more global perspective Then I realize that true normality is very different Over time I have taken for granted the impact and more so the scarcity of multilingualism There is no doubt that multilingualism is an aid to a successful future career We can be assured that Hong Kong will fail to prosper and embark on a steep economic decline That is if the next generations of Hong Kongers are to eradicate the colorful array of languages we have today We are to maintain the continuation of these languages with a strong fluent command But have we ever thought about the negative aspects to Multilingualism We may pride ourselves on being able to recite tongue twisters in three or four different languages But when we think our minds succumb to one chief language The mind rarely achieves a balance say between Chinese and English One eventually takes over When we switch ourselves to thinking mode our brain automatically selects the verbal expressions that we are most comfortable with We subconsciously reduce ourselves to one dominant language along with a flutter of additions from what is then left Multilingualism finds itself in speech But anything more
