PETITION TO MAKE LEARNING ANOTHER LANGUAGE COMPULSORY IN ENGLISH-SPEAKING COUNTRIES FROM A YOUNG AGE BECAUSE ENGLISH SPEAKERS ARE LAZY ASSWIPES WHO EXPECT EVERYONE TO SPEAK ENGLISH AND NEVER BOTHER EVEN LEARNING ANY OTHER LANGUAGE.

Actually, most of us would love speak another language but our education system sucks so we literally learn 4 words. It’s not because we are all lazy.

In school I had to learn French from the age of 11 and Spanish from the age of 13. after 14 years old, they’re optional in the form of GCSEs (highly encouraged by teachers) and then it can be pursued further as an A Level, Degree etc..
Can’t speak for all public schools, but I was able to understand/speak a fair bit of French and Spanish by the age of 16. We even had day trips to France to put this into practice. 

my brother went to a private nursery and could count to 10 in french by the age of 5, but he didn’t bother take an languages at GCSE level and his French is completely lousy.

But yes, I personally agree a lot of us are lazy when it comes to learning languages.
