We're too busy fighting amongst ourselves to take time to contact Aliens.
Well, learning the English language is still a lot easier than learning a really tough programming language. Even if they are just a few thousand years ahead of us, I think learning the English language would be a rather simple task for most members of their species. From that point on, we humans can translate it from English to every other language.
These aliens couldnt come out and talk to us, they would have to know every language on Earth, it's not fair for them to only contact English talking people.
It doesn't matter what they use to communicate between themselves, they would have the technology to at least synthesize a human voice and give it to us in a simple digital-audio format.
They may not even use there mouths to communicate, they may use clicking sounds, or even telepathic.
