Survey.

1. Where are you from?
2. How effective do you feel foreign language education is there?
3. Do you think countries/regions should have official languages, and why?

This is the most relevant community I could think of.

Edit: I'm loving all the responses so far. Thanks to all those who have responded, and plan to respond. I felt I ought to give some explanation to this post, what with slight disagreements in the existing comments based on the faulty wording of the last question. I was working on a paper dealing with the installment of English-only legislation in the United States. It's (obviously) from an American perspective, in which the matter of only one official language will be brought up. I also meant to clarify "country/region" as your own country, etc. Anyhow, I'm afraid my coherency of the day has disappeared. Ta for now, and thanks again!
