2. Try to find out which languages are spoken by most people globally, and check which of them are taught:

b. at your school or in your town/city

3. Give arguments for and against the obligatory teaching of a second foreign language from the fifth grade on.

4. Name the advantages and potential positives of learning foreign languages, both in professional and private life.
