I was hoping a few of you could help me out with a school project by answering a few questions.

1. What country do you live in?
2. DO have any experience with any languages other than english?
3. DO you think learning another language is important/necessary/beneficial?

Thank you to those who are willing to help.

I live in Canada. I have experience with French and German. I do think learning another language is beneficial. It opens up communication and opportunities.

I live in the UK.
I learnt French and Spanish at secondary school and then went on further with my Spanish.
I do think learning another language, at any level, is vital for good all-round education as it gives you an insight into the fact that not everyone is like you.

1) UK
2) french, german, russian, swedish
3) no because everyone in my experience (despite having lived abroad in russia and germany) can speak english or have a significant understanding of it so as a communication tool, learning langs is pointless though from an understanding point of view (i mean from a cultural point of view), sometimes the way the language is constructed can give an insight into the mentality of the people.

took three yrs German in high school, five yrs French. Can't speak either one but can read a little.

Yes, should be required. US is a country that doesn't value diversity, not really, and certainly not when it means accepting another culture/country/religion as important and valid as our own.

I live in the U.S but was born in India. I used to know my native tongue Hindu but basically forgot all of it when I came to Canada and learned English. Now I can only understand a handful of Hindi and cannot speak nor write the language. :sad:

I learned German in high school.
I think it's important and beneficial, not essential unless you are moving to another country.
