  1. Language can be a barrier when people don't understand each other. It may be because they speak totally different languages (i.e., Arabic and English). It may be because, although they speak the same language, they are not listening carefully, or the listener doesn't doesn't want to hear what the speaker says, or the speaker uses words that are not understood by the speaker.

    Language is beneficial because it is human's prime method of communication.
