I know spanish as a second language of my culture and I think its important 4 everyone to know. So tell me should a second language ,no matter what it is, be mandatory. Because I think so...y tu?(and you?)
I think it definitely is. I think everybody should know at least 2 languages. These days the world is really close via internet, tv, and traveling is very easy (as long as you don't try and bring nail clippers on the plane...). I also think that people should know the majority of their native language. I know an iranian girl, her mother and whole family speaks the language, but she can only speak english. She has no interest in learning the language either, and I think thats sad.
My aunty speaks/writes 7 languages fluently. Its amazing, she is very intelligent.
English, French, Spanish, Italian, Chinese, Japanese and Mandarin. And can write in all their alphabets too.
It gives you lots of business opportunities too, My Aunty has gotten a lot of business by speaking to all the clients in their language. She gets most of the business in her industry for this reason.
So yeah, I think it is very useful and I think all children should speak english and another language depending on where they live. I live in New Zealand and a few of my friends speak maori as well.
I speak English and Vietnamese. I'm also taking a course to learn Chinese. I've lost touch with Vietnamese, but I'm hoping to get it back. And knowing 2 or more languages is very helpful. You can get higher paid jobs and be a translator in business and etc. Being bilingual+ is very beneficial and can also allow you to travel and meet clients.
I think Spanish and English are the important languages in the US. But it's also important that everyone should speak their native language. Vietnamese is my native language but sadly, I cannot really speak them that well as I am barely fluent with that language.
I live in the philippines. My native language is Tagalog and my 2nd language is English. I believe im kinda fluent on both. I would like to learn some european languages though. Knowing other languages amps up your resume.
I think its useful. I speak english, and my howntown language which is just an off turn of english. 2nd lanuage being french and 3rd being a lil or spanish, hopeing to get it better when I go to spain this year
I feel like it shouldnt be important, if a person goes to a native country (unless its just a vacation) THEY should know THEIR language. We shouldnt have to sit in a classroom to learn theirs.
I do my first language is english then my second is sign lanuage and my 3 is french. It is easyer to get a job if you speak more then one language
I think it is important because you have a better chance at getting a job and you can show off and stuff
