1st of all I have nothing against non-English speakers…. but I believe it’s sad dat their primary language taught in school, is their native language, and English r only optional.
I mean it’s sad, coz I believe being taught yer native language, will isolate u from people from other countries by some degree, ESPECIALLY when u r young. I mean for example, a 12 yo livin in Spain or Portugal won’t be able 2 handle proper communication wid a citizen livin in US or Canada, when they chat online, coz English language isn’t their primary language in school. It’d be harder also when they play some video-game genres, like RPGs, coz there’s lots of text in English . So it’s really “unfair” in their case.
So being taught yer native language as yer primary one will make u handle proper communication ONLY wid native speakers. Note also dat most non-English speakers have a serious lack of knowledge in slang, so they’d have even a harder time handlin communication wid some English native speaker
Definetely I believe English should b taught as da primary-language worldwide, including slang terms as well. Everything’s in English after all…movies/music/video-games, etc……so….

Well, English is an international language, so it would certainly come in handy if they did.2
