I think we are all lucky to be english. It is the most prevalent language in the world as it is wide spread, but mandarin is the most spoken. Recently I tried to learn a few new languages from phrase books, and it was harder than i thought.
How do we get the whole world to speak english, or make it easier for them to speak english? I propose we teach the kids 'slang' in thier own language with sentence structure similar to english. This will popularise the language there, and they will know how to put a sentence together. If we were to teach them first the structure, or grammar, and find a way to make people on radios and tv to make jokes as if they were english and otherwise inane aswell, they could easily grasp a few words here or there, and then learn the language that connects the world.
