Should everyone study a foreign language?

(上記TOPIC、英語で意見を論理的に述べる技術とトレーニング第7章より引用)

Essay

 I don’t think EVERYONE should study a foreign language for the following two reasons.
 The first reason is that I believe it is so wrong to force people to study because each person has their own individuality. Some are good at studying and others are good at sports and others are good at music. Every person should have the option to develop their own individuality instead of studying things that they don’t want to because especially in this modern society where individual ability is being valued more and more it is very important to develop individuality. Moreover studying should be a self-motivated thing because they cannot really learn things as long as they study reluctantly.
 The second reason is that there are more important things for some people than to study a foreign language. For instance, for pianists, it is more important to practice piano than study a foreign language. For surgeons, it is more important to develop their surgical skills.
 As I mentioned, for the aforesaid two reasons, I don’t think EVERYONE should study a foreign language.
