Makes sense, English being the second most spoken language in the world, foriegn people tend to speak it. A lot of the time, when a merchant of china meets a merchant of india, they will most probably talk in English (this could well be a lie, but it works as a false example). Why should we as a country wish to speak French where the only place we're going to use the language would be in France and parts of Canada (and yes, other places in the worlds as well) whereas if a French person learns English they would be able to speak to a lot of the known world.
