I live in Russia. In our country, the official language is Russian. Everyone begins to learn English from the 2nd grade of the school. Unfortunately, by the end of school, most children do not know English. If a child enters to study at a higher educational institution, then he studies English at the institute. And also after graduation, most graduates do not know him. One who learns the language on his own begins to read the language well, using the Translator. But to say - few can.
