Now, English is heard all over the world, and it's called an international language. But I think that people in the world don't need English as an international language. First reason, if English should be used for international communication only, we wouldn't study. Mr.Muramatsu said Russian had been spread by a power, but English have with cultures : business, music, entertainment and so on. English is a moneymaking item for Vietnamese from Mr.Muramatsu's comment. This truth that English is spread is not natural. Secondly,we think that we need to study second foreign language.(English is first foreign language.) This tolled us that English isn't an international language. I want to study English as one foreign language, not as an international language.
