English Is THE Language of Success. Even in France!
By: John Lillpop
While Barack Obama foolishly talks down to American citizens by telling parents to assure that their children can speak Spanish, the world is going in the exact opposite direction.
Indeed, France is finally getting the message!
As reported in the Daily Mail in England, Xavier Darcos, France’s Education Minister, has now admitted for the first time that the secret to success is speaking better English, and says that poor English is a ‘handicap’ because all international business is conducted in the language.
Mr. Darcos added that he wanted to make it easier for all French students to learn English, saying that ‘while well-off families pay for study sessions abroad, I’m offering them to everyone right here.’
He went on to state that said French schools would offer extra English lessons during the holidays.
How is it that the French can see the plain truth, while Hispanics and other advocates of bilingual mumbo-jumbo are so blinded to reality?
Shall we blame it on racism, or stupidity? Or an un-healthy combination thereof?
A word of wisdom to those still uncomfortable with English: Get over it! English is THE language needed to succeed throughout the world.
