Without foregin language - English in this case you couldn't be a part of our great community in here :)
We never know what will happen in the future. No one force us to stay all life in the same corner of the world that we were born in. Even today it might seems impossible to travel or work abroad but who knows what tommorow brings.
English as well as other languages always was, is and will be an asset.
In Europe we are instructed to learn at least two languages foreign :) Is very funny and easy and we can and we can enrich our knowledge about anothers cultures...Some persons speak more than 20 languages and are in list of polyglots :)
What about to comfort our mind. I don't suffer at all. I feel relax when I study Spanish. It is weired but it is my reason.
Learning language is fun and learning something is an asset.. who knows we might use it in the future in our upcoming work, business etc.. Yes learning language is really difficult just like elarning other things because it requires time and dedication but it is not really that suffering. You don't suffer much in the things that you love to do. You will find it fun and fulfilling
I feel it is not necessarily to waste a lot of time to learn languages unless we need it in our daily life. actually I have spent many years trying to learn English. so far, I do n't remember that I was in a situation in which my English used.
