Mensagem:  I don't understand you, Pat. It sounds like you think that learning English is unattainable and people should just give it up and remain monolingual. This way of thinking goes against the facts. According to some statistics there are in the world today approximately 400 million native speakers of English and another 400 million speakers of English as a second language. If a Russian airplane pilot lands in Turkey, he speaks English with the air traffic controller, if a Japanese businessman wants to do business in China or in Argentina, he will communicate in English.
