Learning a second language could be very helpful to our society as a whole. It would make communication with other countries easier and give the people who learn the second language a head start when looking for a job because they can now apply places that want people with two languages.
We should be required to learn a second language because studies said that people who speak to languages have higher scores on your standardized test in math, reading and social studies as well as entrance exams like the ACT and or the SAT's. Not also that but they have great listening skills
Depending on were you come from, or were you will be going to in the future, you shouldn't learn a second language. If you really want to learn about how to speak a language then ok that is fine by me. But if you want to learn about the country, you can learn about in your history class. That is all I have to say.
