    Of course I would make an effort to learn the local language but as far as teaching languages in school or bringing children up to speak lots of different languages there is no need. English is the only language that matters. When people need to communication but neither speak each other's language the chances are they will speak English as the lingua franca. The world's most powerful countries place a huge importance on English.
    I think you'd be surprised to see how much more people respect you if you talk in their own language, not to mention you often understand their culture far better and you can obviously understand them if they talk about you in their language.
    Also multilingualism has been shown to be hugely advantageous, as you perform certain tasks more easily and are even more likely to recover from strokes!

    Only English because other languages in the world don't matter.
    Chinese is the most spoken language... So shouldn't Chinese technically be the most important?

    Compare how many countries in which English is spoken to how many Chinese is....
    And think about China's population

    I believe Cornish is making a comeback (albeit small) so potentially not that dead after all
