I went to schools here all my life and i can do ok. My mother and father came to this country and before becoming citizens, they were made to take
Once that was done, they could apply for citizenship. That is the way it should be.
IF you are going to live here, not only should you have an understanding of the language, but you should be WILLING TO APPLY IT to your daily life.
Speak the darn thing.Another thing is that after say, you become 40 years old it does become harder to learn English. But that's ok too. As long as

that getting the super tight jeans- it does show he has wevos!!!
