is coding more important than English?
Apple CEO Tim Cook caused some controversy this week when he said that he believes learning coding is more important for students around the world than learning English. His exact words are below:
There were different responses to Cook's words. Some people agreed, and some think he is wrong.

What do you think? Is coding the language of the future, or will English remain important?
