People in Britain who fail to learn foreign languages are far less able to take advantage of the freedom of movement provided by their membership of the European Union. This may even be a contributing factor in the current political debate, in which this freedom is seen only negatively in Britain.

And if you never struggle at school, then you are probably not learning as much as you could. New maths students at one of the best universities in the UK are greeted with a message that includes the following:
Due to the grades we ask for, many of you will never have struggled with mathematics... be prepared to start doing so almost straight away, we don't want you to be sitting in your comfort zone for long! The degree is challenging, but we have every confidence that you can all rise to that challenge!
