So, we're trying to encourage the teaching of languages of international significance.

But not everyone will be an international busy-ness-man. How do kid's who'll grow up to become brickies, mechanics or office workers benefit from failing to learn Chinese at school?

How will they benefit from learning Italian? Foreign language teaching is designed to offer the basics to everyone because we cannot be sure at a high school age who will do what, and it would absurdly presumptuous of us to deny certain students that opportunity simply based on the current situation.
well, there is a significant presence of Italian phrases in the arts, so someone who is into that may want to know Italian.
