An interesting read on the French attempt to improve the teaching of English (somewhere a militant Québécois is howling in impotent fury).  It is an initiative worthy of being emulated in the United States where foreign language instruction is often an afterthought.  In an increasingly global world grasping foreign languages and culture can give companies, individuals and countries a key strategic advantage.  While educators and even Barack Obama have encouraged this, others are still stuck defending their parochial outlook to the world.
