Languages Important to the "Re-branding" of the US

CNN ran a story today entitled, "Obama poised to rebrand America, experts say."

The article focuses on international perceptions of the US, and one of the expert recommendations focuses on languages:

"In addition to exposing the rest of the world to U.S. culture, Obama should also make sure young Americans are citizens of the world. Martin recommends education reform, with an emphasis on world history and language classes [emphasis mine]."
