Language doesn't stay the same no matter what people think. It adapts, changes, gains popularity, loses popularity, or falls into disuse completely. I don't know why English would be any different.

I can barely understand Old English at all. The only reason English is still with us is that it adapted. French should do the same if it wants to survive and stay relevant. Adopt Arabic words, English words, Mandarin words, etc.
Anyway, English will be the main language where you live at the moment until well after your death. So it's all academic.

Still a really nice group of people to spend Christmas dinner with, though.
