Im sure the next generations will speak english fluent and write better because internet. Even if we allready do it pretty good (not including me, using hfboards is actually part of my plant to learn english lol)
You can pick German, French and if I'm not completely mistaken even Swedish on 3rd grade instead of English, but pretty much everyone(parents) chooses English.. That shows that English is not something people force themselves to learn, it's extremely popular too... Though I'm not sure if the system is still like that...
