I am of the opinion that American schools need to take the teaching of other languages in school way more seriously. Most of the world can speak an additional language. The studies have shown that it is beneficial not only in communication but helps the brain to form new pathways and makes it possible for the brain to even think in different ways. This is an advantage many are getting that we in the States should be taking note of.
