There are schools of thought that believe just that. The book 'The Languages of Pao' investigates the cultural impact on a society that is taught specialty languages for each aread of expertise: military, scientific, trade, while maintaining a unique (noun absent) archaic language.

It is generally agreed that language and culture are closely related. Language can be viewed as a verbal expression of culture.

Consider a simple thing like a greeting:

In English we say "How are you?" We are not really interested in how the person feels and we would be surprised if the person started to tell us about their aches and pains and health problems but that is our greeting, our culture. Other cultures have different greetings they may say "Where are you going?" or "where have you come from?" when they meet because that is their culture.
