@sagas Let's not make this a fight. I'll try to explain the whole thing. "Forcing" is not a good word, because it means some other country makes you learn it, but if you are going to do anything international you have to know English or hope that your translator knows what they are doing.

So in short: Not forced, but pretty much mandatory.

I kinda like that everyone in US is baffled that I'm trilingual and didn't actually take any extra classes for those languages. I speak Finnish, Swedish and English. My Swedish is crappy, but I think I would survive day to day life in Sweden. I also speak some German, French and Japanese, but not in the same extent.
