Why did the GHQ not promote English during the occupation?

I wonder why GHQ did not force Japanese people to use the English language during the occupation, or at least add English to one of its official languages, much like Hong Kong under occupation by UK. Or when Japan invaded South Korea, it forced to use Japanese language to Koreans. So why did they not force the use of English during the occupation?
