I was not
trying to say that everybody
should learn English. The point I was
trying to make there is that knowing
English is a privilege and that it is easy
to not notice it.
I agree with that, too. How is teaching language different relative to
the Foundation Mission than teaching subjects of encyclopedia
We are not *teaching* encyclopedia articles. We are making it possible to
write them and to read them. It is not the same thing as teaching subjects.
Should we do teaching? Maybe, but since it's different from making it
possible to write and read, I'm afraid it would be losing focus.
Is there anything bad about teaching languages? Of course not. It's great.
I'm just not sure that it's the right thing for Wikimedia to do, when
Wikimedia should be busy getting even better at its main thing: wiki
