Learning Languages at School

The first ever contact with languages comes in school training. Here students come to know about other civilizations, cultures and languages. The question 'should everyone have to learn at least one foreign language at school?' is controversial. While most teachers think yes, many parents suppose the contrary.

Twenty first century schools teach more than a single language because the job market demands people with multiple skills and language is one of the essentials. So learning a foreign language becomes a necessity that everyone should obtain before starting to look for a decent job and it is the absolute duty of the teaching system to provide options of available languages to the students.
