Will these beautiful languages like Hindi and English be around in a few thousand years?

It’s interesting to think that only a couple thousand years ago proper English that we speak today didn’t exist, perhaps Old English did but there have been so many variations and dialects of language over time.  I was wondering the other day if these beautiful languages of Hindi and English will even be around in 84,000 years.  No one has seen tomorrow, regardless of what anyone says, including myself but there is definitely a possibility that these languages won’t exist. But even if these languages don’t exist some basic human communication will surely exist, there will be communications regarding food, some sort of work, time, life, death etc. I try not to be superstitious but when you worry about something too much the worry can become true, a self-fulfilling prophecy.  Even though the former statement is true, this loss of language is not a worry, it’s a thought that is interesting to muse on as that will make us value what we currently have.  Today, English is by far the most common language spoken globally; we all can communicate together for the most part as a globe.  Although, it didn’t always used to be this way and it may not be this way in the future either. Let’s value even our own known languages as they are right now and the fact technology has made the world smaller.
