English should be the priority

YET another of our Prime Minister’s bright ideas.

All students to learn an Asian language.

Perhaps a better idea would be for all students to learn how to speak English correctly.

Many young people are most inarticulate and unable to conduct a conversation, let alone read or write with any accuracy.

Our young people live in the world of cyber talk, and are hopelessly out of their depth without an electronic device to think or speak for them.

Before they embrace an Asian language, instruction and education in the use of the English language can only benefit our youth in their future life.
