What is language?
It’s the method of human communication, either spoken or written, consisting of the use of words in a structured and conventional way.
This is the answer you get if you look out for the definition of a Language on google.
However, language is much more than that! It’s not just a medium just convey messages but also to express ourselves. Language is an integral part of a culture that binds its people together.
The ability to communicate through not only separates us from other living creatures but enables us to express ourselves and our opinions, create art, organise society, and so much more.
Today, humans express themselves to others in 5000 to 7000 languages globally.
In India itself, there are 22 official languages and hundreds of dialects but most of us can only speak in 1 or 2 languages.
