People must first learn (in school) to speak one of their country's languages before foreign languages. I speak about people who live in their own country. I speak about how advantageous or right it is to learn a native language first before a foreign language, not how advantageous it is to learn a native language than a foreign language.

Native language-the primary language of a community(
Foreign language-any languages from another country


Your resolution includes the word "must" since there is no necessity nor a force from which what you are advocating to derive from, i see no reason at all that people "must" learn how to speak their own native language first.

Good game.

alex_hanson911 is right. Unlike him, I am not a good debater and thus am not going to post anymore. I lost. Good game.

"It is advantageous for people to learn their native language first" is that so hard?

Atheism it's not merely semantics, it's people wording their resolution in an incredibly stupid way. They should lrn2debate. Or at least make a proper resolution from what they are trying to debate.

I can easily defeat this argument with semantics in about five minutes, give or take.
