I learned my english by watching Melrose Place, MacGyver and Star Trek, not by learning it in school. As a contrast, I studied german from grades 3-9, yet I couldn't write, let alone speak it with any sort of fluency. I'm sure the Michael Moore's of the world are disappointed by this answer, but this is the truth.....
In the other hand, that only explains english.. but the education system has been exellent in other subjects too. But now this is way too offtopic, im out of this.
