I question why we are forcing kids to learn second language in school, where clearly such technology will mature and will make communication between people globally seemless without ever having to learn a second language. I suggest that schools should make second language classes optional effective immediately, otherwise it's like making Latin a required middle school subject.
Should learning second language in school become optional?
