I understand that not being fluent in a language does not make you stupid. Butif you know that you're going to Thailand, you ought to be able to ask where the bathroom is in Thai, and maybe where to find your hotel. I'm not asking that you be able to recite literature or anything like that. It's really more being prepared than anything.

And as far as ignorance, I believe they did a survey once and 30+ percent of Americans couldn't find Canada on a map. Hello? North? Many don't know who our congressional leaders are, nor who represents our area in congress. And as far as math goes, sooner or later 2+2 will equal 5.
