In today' E-world,English has become the main language for communication. However, other languages such as French, German and Spanish are also spoken by many people. Thus,I feel that students should be given a choice to select between English and any other foreign language.This essay will discuss the importance of learning English or any other foreign language in all schools.
English is recognized as the international language and many parents prefer enrolling their children in schools which teach English as a foreign language. They believe that as the whole universe has come closer due to the internet, learning English at school level would surely benefit the students in due course. For example, in my country India people speak many Indian languages. When students require valuable information, they search the internet and try to get the required details only in English.
However, in some countries people are more comfortable with other languages such as French and German. These people would surely recommend the schools to make French or German as the main subject instead of English although it is more popular than those languages.
In addition, Chinese language is slowly becoming popular and it is projected that more and more people will learn the language in future. Under the circumstances, some people might prefer the schools in their country to introduce Chinese language and make it compulsory.
To sum up, I firmly believe that it will not be correct to force students to learn a foreign language in school based only on its popularity. The choice of learning a foreign language should be left to the students.
