To whoever wrote this, English is already a mandatory subject in private and public schools. I went to private schools from k-10 and public from 11-12. (I found public school curriculum much easier than private school though) Graduated high school and was able to speak, read and write English. Went on to college in the USA and did better than many Americans in their English placement test. My niece and nephew started their English education by watching cable TV with US programing in English.
