    Yep Chinese and Spanish will likely be the 2 most useful languages to the next generation.

    I don't think it will be for about 3 generations at the VERY least (75-150 years), and even then, it will be a 'second tier language compared to English, Spanish, Chinese, and possibly Farsi.

    That's what you get for thinking ahead. Our public education system appears unable to do that.

    I don't see why the study of any specific foreign language would be made mandatory in US public schools. It should be a matter of choice and I'm sure that many students would benefit more from learning languages other than Arabic. That being said, Arabic is a great language and it's much easier to learn than most people seem to think it is. Its structure is logical and predictable compared to English and a large number of other languages either use its alphabet or borrow extensively from its vocabulary; even Spanish has thousands of Arabic loanwords.

    I think public school students here would benefit from being able to study languages with non-Latin orthographies... common sense tells me that mastering a language dissimilar from your native tongue significantly improves your ability to learn and reason.

    Absolutely, all children should be allowed access to some sort of foreign language. The problem here is that it seems to be mandatory. THAT is bs. There should be choices of what language you want to lean and it should never be a requirement.
