Besides Spanish, what language should we be required to learn? Any student that goes to high school has the opportunity to learn Spanish (the most prominent language in America besides English). So if a student doesn't learn it it's their own fault. If they need it further down the line then they only have themselves to blame. I for one didn't take Spanish in high school because I wanted to focus on the sciences and arts. But I do have a goal of learn several languages.

England was the dominant power for quite some time and spread their colonies around the world. As England waned in global power, USA and other colonies ascended, maintaining English as the primary language internationally. It is not because they are lazy so much as lucky that their nations had the power to force everyone else to deal with them in their language.

American language isn't a language, its English. But I agree whenever I go abroad I feel like a complete cheat, everyone speaks English and it makes me feel lazy. so I always make sure that when I go somewhere I at least learn the basics!

it is the combined influence of England and America. England had a big empire and spread the English language all over the world. America made English the language of international business after WW2.
