Hear through the Smiley Face

I believe that most of you have heard of this cliché, “Wherever you go, people speaks English”. With no doubt, English is still one of the required languages learnt at school around the globe. English, helps us to transcend the language barrier between people of different nations and races. However, in this 21st century, a new kind of language is invented and has further helped us dismiss such language differences among people – emoji. Emoji has become a universal language. With one single emoji, we are able to convey our feelings – something that is even hard to put in words, to the world.
Even when you meet people of different mother tongues and cultures, given that we have the means and abilities, it is just up to our willingness to connect with people. If you want to, there is never such a thing as communication barrier.
