Why do you have to take English classes in high school?

Answer

To be able to speak the language articulately and to be able to use grammer properly. You don't want to appear ignorant, do you?

English classes in Middle School and especially High School are the biggest waste of time. Taxes shouldn't pay English teachers money to read books to us. Nations are far ahead of the United States when learning foreign languages because of this! English should certainly be removed from the curriculum because students start learning English grammar as early as elementary school!
