PETITION TO MAKE LEARNING ANOTHER LANGUAGE COMPULSORY IN ENGLISH-SPEAKING COUNTRIES FROM A YOUNG AGE BECAUSE ENGLISH SPEAKERS ARE LAZY ASSWIPES WHO EXPECT EVERYONE TO SPEAK ENGLISH AND NEVER BOTHER EVEN LEARNING ANY OTHER LANGUAGE.
Actually, most of us would love speak another language but our education system sucks so we literally learn 4 words. It’s not because we are all lazy.
Yes, some of us are lazy. Typically the older and more ignorant generation, while the younger (generation) tends to be more willing.
Our education system does have something to do with it though. Learning languages is hard. The best time to learn languages is when you’re young, that’s when that part of your brain is working the best. By your teens that starts to shut down. And when do we start offering language classes in the US? In high school.
Not to say that teens and adults shouldn’t try to learn other languages. It’s just more difficult for them and way more time consuming.
