    Ill-advised reasons to learn a language other than English

    This would have been a thread in a club on Asperclick, but that site has closed. English being the most common lingua-franca in the world doesn't stop learning languages other than English being popular and doesn't even stop governments of all English-speaking from requiring schoolchildren to...
