Do you think learning a second language should not be made compulsory?

In Canada, we HAVE to learn French from grades 1 to 10. And I know it's the same in the U.S. except it's Spanish that you have to learn. What's the point? Most of us won't use French or Spanish in our lives, it does not help with our jobs (for most of us). Plus, it messes with our English. For French, some words are almost exactly English with the exception of an extra alphabet. Plus for those of you who argue that it "broadens" our minds. EVERYTHING broadens our minds, learning a new sport, playing a new instrument, learning dancing...etc. We should be allowed to choose not to learn another language.
