Should everyone have to learn at least one foreign language at school?

It is an important thing to make progress in education systems, especially for developing countries and one of the most important factors is supporting and building a strong, modern, highly educated generation.

Multilingualism has become a passport for all prized jobs. More and more often English is becoming a global language, so for that reason we must include it in the learning programme. Indeed, some countries, such as America, are now entering Spanish as a second official language to be learnt in school.

In my opinion, time is changing and no one can turn this fact at all. So why don't we move on and enhance our schools with a huge amount of programmes and courses to make sure that all students have got one extra foreign language?
