wana live here then learn our language simple as that!!
So is Europe having the same problem with thousand of Brits flooding Spain, France, Switzerland, etc.. and not willing to learn Spanish, French etc.. sending their kids to an english school. Living in close knit British community. Going to a British own pub...
Do Brits claim welfare benefits, get free homes and medical treatment, from the taxpaying citizens of these host countries?
Have a guess.

I just had a couple knock on my door saying that they were looking for Spanish speaking people. Were they selling something? Were they Jehova Witnesses? I don't know, but the whole thing kind of rubbed me the wrong way.
My great-grandmother came to this country from Italy when she was sixteen years old, it was 1903 and she was completely alone, her first priority was to learn English.
She had 8 kids and she refused to teach them Italian and she refused to speak it in her house. She felt proud and happy and grateful to be an American.
It must be different for the new wave of immigrants, I must confess I really don't understand where they're coming from.

En Espanol we'd say ....Que Pinche Pindejo. ( what a friggin dumbA$$)
You know what I would have told the guy....and I speak Spanish (albeit poorly)
Maybe you should've migrated South from Mexico instead of North ! Pinhead.
Go speak Spanish in ....one of the following....for there's plenty of places South of Mexico to speak Spanish such as, Guatemala,Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Panama, Columbia....Venezuela.
Vamos Pindejo !

I think given twenty three years, I could speak any language on earth. This is laziness and a lack of wanting to assimilate to your new country.
If I moved to another country I would make leaning the language my first priority. How else are going to know what the hell is going on?
Too much "press two for spanish" in this country these days.

people will say english will always be spoken here but then again ask any roman of the time that there would be a day that latin was never spoken in rome.

this guy just refused to assimilate, the way he emphasized family towards the end makes it obvious he hes trying to live in his own spanish bubble in america. speaking any language besides english in the US should be enough for the local law enforcement to question your citizenship.
after 23 years you should be comfortable enough to give a testimony in the language of your residing country.edit on 17-6-2011 by gougitousakusha because: (no reason given)
