Editorial A couple of years ago, a professor at my university had a very interesting thought exchange with the class I was in. We were a small group, and I knew most of them, they were my friends. Anyway, we had a talk about language purism - not an unimportant subject if you study English in The Netherlands.

A foreign language is a US high school requirement. I distinctly remember being forced to choose between a year of French or Spanish in 1991.

This may vary between school districts. I couldn't say.
