I think everyone should learn to speak a second language.

Firstly, it works a different part of your brain than other subjects such as math or science. Also, being able to converse with someone who does not speak English and get to know them is a testament to the importance of learning a new language. Finally, learning a new language makes traveling around foreign countries easier.
