That is a diffcult question. It depends on a lot of thing in the country. In my country, pupil have to learn english in high school, but it is not effectily. Because teacher have just concentrated on structure grammar, writing with boring homework. Otherwise, pupil did not recognize that how language was important, so they had no studied hard. Therefore, the result is pupil have to study english a lot of time, but they could not use it eventhough, they always pass an exam.
