Looks like a little more backdoor tactic to make this country "multi lingual". Learning a foreign language is not a bad thing in itself, but look a little deeper and find the motives why this is so important when there are other things of greater academic impotance the resources could be used on.

Funny my daughter was taking a class for the State and an Indian girl wanted to know why is it that no one is required to speak her language, but that the Spanish are catered too, she said you know just like your ancesters from Italy and Canada, guess what my daughter did not know how to respond to that question........any advise as to what to say when someone who has learned English from another country today as to why we do cater to the Spanish language? I honestly didn't have an answer for her or my daughter!
