Is the ability to speak at least one additional language, to mother tongue, fluently, important?


In Briatin there's a great reluctnace to learn and speak other languages. I like a know how many people in the community are bi/multilingual

    Thank you for your gracious answer joster. I agree with you whole heartedly, but maybe that's made because English is also not my first language.

    We don't learn the rudiments of English grammar in British state schools; not in the '70s anyway

    Thank you for your honesty. But you forgot to add that the globe was once 3/4 pink, which meant Brits didn't need to learn anybodies language. Then, as now, only the learned borther. The French held similar attitudes, due to owning the last 1/4.
