People are allowed to enter the country illegally and stay. Why should language be a issue.

Those employees are just being disrespectful.

I'm a Spanish speaker. Its my first language. You dont go to anothers country and not make an effort.

When I came to the US my parents enforced learning English.



It did look very deliberate. She obviously understood what the customer was saying. The girl even counted on her fingers.... 1 2 3 4 5 6! lol

Hasn't there been an ongoing animosity thing between black and spanish folk? This is my understanding anyways. I honestly wouldn't know personally.

I really dont care anymore, I"m just glad I dont have to work anymore and pay fat taxes to the government that has tacitly promoted this with the open borders policy. Sadly however I do have to pay property taxes to fund what amounts to a Mexican school district, which by the way is failing on all measures. This country, as a sovereign nation state is a fast failing experiment.

I thought speaking american was part of the naturalization process.

It is.

If you do not speak american then you likely are not legal or the legalization process is failing in many ways.

I can't wait to get one of those bugs from Hitchhiker guide to the galaxy in my ear that translates any language into the language you speak..... Or the technological equivalate.



I think they have something similar on phones now and little devices. I 'think' I've seen them on amazon even, or somewhere. I can't quite remember.

Whenever I've visited foreign countries I have always tried to learn some basic words and phrases.....usually related to ordering beer and food.


You mean like:

Dos cervesa por favor. I've got that one down. It's important.

Sometimes naturalized citizens will only speak their native tongue in their household. As such their legal citizen children will be fluent in a foreign language, but not so much in English.

With a corporate chain I think it is very necessary. If someone is unfamiliar with an area they find, for the most part, commonality in these establishments. I know there are plenty places of a different cultural significance in America that people frequent for that purpose and maybe if they want to feel inundated by that culture they should probably make the necessary adjustment to help contribute to the experience. Corporations are built on the principles of consistency.

I started teaching myself Pashto for the region of Afghanistan I was deployed to. I started learning conversational Korean when I was heading that way.

I learned English because my parents made sure of it.

This level of disrespectful behavior is something I see a lot of Mexicans do. Thats not just me being an A-hole either. Mexicans don't have any incentive to assimilate and often let you know that by being disrespectful like this.

In some cases they can only speak their native languages. Old dogs and all. Over the years I've tried to learn French and Spanish(easier than French) but can only get a bit.

When they dropped the "u's". No sense of humour.

No doubt and they generally do not get hired for jobs that require you to speak american.

Yea but with todays tech you have to speak into the device. I want something that translates everything around me with such perfect flow that it would blow my mind.

I was told to leave a Chinese restaurant once because I wasn't Chinese. Their menu had no English on it.
