    The percentage of the world who's first language is not english is far greater than that that speak english. Plus, I know western culture, would be awesome going to some remote place and being able to communicate

      @Equinox Worldwide English (also known as UK English) is the second most popular language. The funny thing is, American English is not even as popular as Russian XD.

      @ANIME4EVA Oh, grow up. You survived under Bush; you can certainly survive under Trump. I survived under Obama, but I didn't vow to move to another country because I don't like the 44th President of the United States. And out of all the presidents of this country, why is Trump such a big deal to you?
