Schools and universities love forcing their students to take foreign language classes.
It's for diversity!
It's for a well-rounded education!
No, actually, it's to employ the idiots who 10 years before you majored in a worthless subject.
Oh, huff and puff all you want, the truth is in and it turns out it only pays to major in a foreign language if you're a non-native English speaker living in an English-speaking land.
Now naturally the foreign languages departments, teachers, and professors across the land will get their panties in a bundle, predictably claiming it isn't all about the money, and they wonderful experiences they had in foreign lands, and if they were to blah blah blah.
And for once, I 100% agree with them.
There is a non-financial aspect and benefit to learning a foreign language that should not be measured in increased profits, ROI, or economics.
Good thing Rosetta Stone can replace the billions we waste of foreign language professors and teachers every year for a mere fraction of the cost. And we all know how much those teachers and professors PRIMARILY care about educating the children and not money.
