Should we have to speak two fluent languages?
Debate Rounds (3)
I think not.
People of the world have free will.
Learning a language should be for fun, not like homework!!!
Resolved: Should we have to speak two fluent languages?
Since I'm in the affirmative side, I will have to agree with the topic. We should have to speak two fluent languages.
1.) We should have to speak two fluent languages because it helps make more friends easily. For example, if your new to an area and your only language is Spanish, then it will be hard to make friends. (suppose the area you moved into only knows English)
2.) It makes your brain sharp. According to a 2012 piece by The New York Times, both languages are constantly active in a bilingual brain, even when you're only using one language at a time. Because of this, your brain is steadily flexing its muscles because it's constantly resolving conflict.
Rebuttal: My opponent says that people of the world have freewill and learning a language should be for fun, not like homework. Well, we don't have as much freewill when we are kids. If kids have freewill, then they will be doing a lot of immature things. My opponent also states that learning a language should be fun, not like homework. It's not our decision to have homework, but it's our teacher's decision. Homework helps kids understand the lesson and prepare them for tests to really see if they know about the topic.
Learning another language can take up to years. Since we already know another language, our brain automatically goes back to our original language, which makes it harder to learn another one.
Rebuttal: My opponent says that it helps make friends easier. However, you may never move away from your home town!
Now, my next point will be learning a language will pay off at the end. When a person is searching for a job, companies are hiring people that knows another language. For example, if you know both English and Spanish, and companies are looking for people that knows both English and Spanish, they will want to hire you.
(My rebuttal was already made in the first paragraph)
Also, my statement was not false.
