Ok my dad went over to Kuwait and he did not learn the language to communicate with them. If you go to a country planning to live there for an extended period of time you should learn the language. But if your only over there for a little bit on like vacation it is not necessary to learn the language.

His point wasn't about necessity of learning french, it was about simply about how people need to be better educated as a whole. French is the second most spoken language in the world. The fact that one of the wealthiest countries in the world fosters such generaly ignorant people is quite imbarressing.

Based on your far-right wing stance from the OP, and that your location is Wisconsin, do you happen to live in Mequon? If so, do you watch a lot of Fox?


I personally don't like this video of it, aand I couldn't find the one that appeared on the Daily Show, but this is the kind of garbage that comes out of Fox.

I know the one you're talking about, i looked for it for a minute but couldn't find it. I did find one where John Oliver and the Daily Show research dept destroy Fox News.

He may have decided just not to post due to the obviously caustic and over-aggressive title.

I was told by my French teacher actually. I knew it sounded a bit strange, maybe she was referring to it as the 2nd most popular second language?

Foreign language teachers always hype up their own language.
