Foreign languages at school. Is it good or not?
Nowadays it is really popular to learn a foreign language at school. Some people think that it must be complusory, but others think that it is unnecessary. And now I am going to express my opinion.
From my point of view, foreign languages are very useful. Firstly, a foreign language is a great way to diversify your social circle, force yourself to study and learn something new, to be interested in the culture, politics and art of other countries. they can help schoolchildren to know something new, to meet new people, became friends with them or even get married with foreigner and improve brain work. Secondly. it is easier to learn foreign languages while you are young and at school children can learn it with their friends. So they study foreign languages with fun and big interest.
The school teacher is always ready to answer any question the student has, help him with the study and give many interesting and diverse tasks due to which the student will remember the foreign language better. In addition, students can communicate with each other in the classroom, which will help them develop their speaking and communication skills with people in non-native language.
However, some people can argue that it is a very difficult to learn a foreign language and it is uncompulsory to study it. They say that their children will have a big stress while studying. Nevertheless, sometimes language courses are paid. Parents should spend a lot of money on it.
But I cannot agree with their opinion. I think that foreign languages can help children in future life, work and university.
To sum up, I think that it should be compulsory for all schoolchildren to learn a foreign language because it can help them in their future and develop their mind. Having a knowledge of a foreign language will make it easier for a student to enter the university of his dream or he will be able to work in a place where people who know the language are needed more.
