This is not uncommon at all. Why integrate when their are entire neighborhoods here that are little different then Santo Domingo or San Salvador? We have some communities here on Long Island where entire neighborhoods have every single store sign in Spanish and English is rarely spoken. There are people who have been here for 20+ years and can't speak any English beyond a few basic phrases.
Ever been to Brentwood, NY or Hempstead, NY? You would think you suddenly stepped foot in some Latin American country complete with the crime and squalor and general third worldness.
If I moved to Germany, I would expect that I would have to learn German.
There is no reason for anyone to get upset about not having their language spoken.
People move all over the planet and there is no universal language, though English is pretty close.
It's a big country and there are pockets of any number of world languages spoken all over the place. Generations of people there speaking their native tongue.

It's a corporate restaurant, so command of the English language is mandatory. While we have several bilingual employees, everyone speaks English. It is also corporate policy that English be the only language spoken by employees amongst ourselves.
As to my truthfulness, come on SD, I thought we were friends!
