With 6,192 living languages in the world, there are numerous opportunities for those who choose to learn a language other than their native tongue. However, English is the most commonly spoken non-native language in the world. This means that English speakers are woefully behind in learning foreign languages . At any given time, only 24,000 children in the United States are studying a foreign language, with most of those children learning these languages in high school. The U.S. Department of Defense has noted that there is a "critical need for foreign language skills." Now, James Smith and his team have launched an IndieGoGo campaign to fund education for students who are interested in pursuing study of a foreign language.
