Here I'm pretty sure they're starting to teach English as a second language even in kindergartens, and anyway most of cartoons for children, movies, books (with all their names) are from the U.S. so the knowledge of this language is spreading pretty fast. Is English the language of the future? Is it a nice international language? Will it replace every other language? are you afraid for your own language and culture? Personally I'm not sure America's hegemony will last long enough to impose English all over the world, but I think that's a pity. It's the easiest, most practical language I've ever known, it has deep words capable of expressing anything without any kind of complex bullshit like conjugations and declinations. I like my own language aswell, but I would surely give it up for a global language (imagine how cool that would be!). Mine is a strong position, I don't really care about the elegance, finesse and diversity of cultures: just think of the HUGE practical benefits!
