The majority of opinions shared stated that for one not to put any effort in to learn a second language were lazy.
The comments were filled with mixed reviews. Some stating that without the correct resources, it was hard and sometimes impossible to learn a second language and that if one was provided with the resources, they should grab the oppurtunity and go for it.
Others claimed it was the fact that some people are plain ignorant and that it wouldn’t hurt to learn a language (even if it is the basics such as ‘hello’ and ‘good morning’).
In conclusion, the majority of opinions decided that to not make the effort to learn a second language was negative.
