I'm applying for a degree in modern languages and I want the sentence to be something along the lines of "languages are essential in the developing world"
How can I word it so it's catchy?
According to Genesis mankind defied God and united to build a tower to the heavens. God punished their hubris by scattering mankind across the Earth and confounding their language into many mutually inscrutable tongues. While mankind's efforts to build a tower to the heavens was doomed from the start, being divided by the languages we speak stands as an obstacle to mankind's more worthwhile endeavors.
I want it to be more Languages oriented than that.. something along the lines of "in this developing world I feel that learning a language is essential" but better worded xD
With the approval of my entrance application, you'll be getting an extremely self-motivated person who will bring great credit upon myself and this University....
But... I'm not religious... also, it sounds too philosophical for me, that's almost like lying xD
