You seem to be mislead. What we mean by "languages" is Programming Languages, not speaking languages :D. Try a different site.

sublanguages on english like traditional hindi , morden hindi like.

That will not be me, but I will give you my opinion anyway :)

There are hundreds of English language dialects, even in the USA there are quite a few. Fortunately, most of them can be understood by most people, and only accents are the main difference. A good wiki explanation is here

AFAIK there are two common forms of the English language -- American English and British English. All other dialects are based on one of those two. The same word used commonly in UK may mean something entirely different than in the USA. The expression "knock me up" comes to mind, I learned that one the hard way when I lived temporarily in England during the 1970s. Others that come to mind are "boot", "bonnet", "rubber".

And to make it even more difficult, the English language is scattered with words from other languages, such as French and German.

For those reasons it must be exceedingly difficult for non-English speaking people to learn the English language.
