I really wish that this way a main view in the schools of America. One of the things that I dislike is that American schools (not all but most) do not push languages on the children. In turn, it’s a reason why we are lacking so much in our education. As someone who travels a lot and takes it upon herself to learn the language and the customs of the other country, I don’t want to be labeled as just another American who thinks that if she speaks English a little louder and slower, the other people will understand exactly what I’m saying. Wherever I go, I preach about how important learning other languages really is. It’s helps to bridge the gaps in today’s world and people often respect you more because they are seeing that you are trying to respectful of their world. I wish that more people who take the advice of this article.
