@kylermcgee You ignorant prick, this is the reason America is going nowhere anymore.

You move to a new country, you learn the local language. That's just how it works, you ignorant prick.

You can't go through life expecting people to go out of their way to accommodate you. Certainly some time should be given to allow immigrants to gain proficiency, but they should speak the language within two to three years of moving to their new country of residence.

If you move to a different country, you need to learn the native language! It's so stupid if you don't!

If I move to a Spanish-speaking country, I'll learn Spanish. If they move here, they should learn English. Jesus, you're an idiot.

There is nothing wrong with people who are immigrating properly from struggling with English, but illegal immigration to the US from Spanish speaking countries is a real problem here.

In Brazil you have to be fluent in Portuguese to become a naturalized citizen, in Japan you have to learn Japanese. In reality most countries are like that. There is nothing wrong with expecting immigrants to learn the language, or deporting them if they refuse to.

The flaws in the immigration process are an entirely different subject.

You think illegals are not hard workers? I agree they should try to come legally, but they come here and do hard work. They come to better their lives and the lives of their children. They will do some of the physically toughest jobs to scrape up some money; with this, they are still better off than they would be in their native countries. And many of them do pick up the language. They just have issues becoming legal residents.

I never said it was acceptable to come illegally. I just said they come to this country and do difficult work. And just because they are used to it at home doesn't mean they should struggle like that forever. Some of them had better jobs in other countries as well, such as school teachers; they just were not paid as well as they are in America for jobs as migrant workers.

Unlike most grandchildren, I enjoy listening to my grandpa's stories. He listened to his parents' stories. He told me of the hardships his family faced. He was able to give detail.
My grandma also told stories. Her dad was an orphan at 10, and went long periods of time without food. He slept on the streets and looked for work. He didn't expect any handouts from the government or other people.
My great grandparents all went through the Great Depression, and my grandparents lived through it as toddlers. I listen to these details.
New immigrants need to quit acting like they deserve something because of their prior lives, and YOU need to quit acting like I know absolutely nothing. I've listened to not only my grandparents' stories, but my friends' grandparents' stories, and my teachers'. I didn't come up with this stuff out of thin air.

I wasn't referring to the illegal immigrants who come to the U.S. by choice. I'm talking about all the relocated refugee's. The U.S. is the highest relocation country for other countries around the world who are in civil wars. Most the families who are relocated have tried for years to get over here, imagining how much better life could be. However, the U.S. government throws them into the system. Most the kids have not received an education at all, and are put into grades by their age. Some are put into 5th, 6th, even 7th grade before they know the English alphabet, or basic addition. I locally volunteer every week at a refugee center, so I see these struggles daily. Most the kids parents are put into low paying, cleaning jobs, commuting many hours everyday, only to be put on food stamps by the end of the month. It's a very sad situation. Is that how we want people around the world to view the U.S.? A country that no longer gives a fuck? If so, I'm leaving.

You're right, the whole world doesn't revolve around English. In America, it does.

I definately think that people should learn more than one language, but if you are going to live in another country, then you should learn the language they they speak. People from all over the world come to America, you can't expect people to learn every language for every single immigrant. If an American was to go to another country, say Italy, and never try to speak Italien, they would be considered an ignorant american.

@632090

Exactly like you said, "THEY come HERE". If they want to live here, they can learn English, the same way that we would learn their language if we moved to their country. We don't have to learn a bunch of different languages to accomodate them. That just isn't logical.

Additionally they describe things AFTER they state them, which makes SO much more sense:

Example:
The White House
La Casa Blanca

I agree for the most part, but most Spanish speakers in the U.S. are bilingual anyway. Most coming in from Mexico as well don't want to stay here either, they usually want to make some money and return later to their home. They should learn English if coming here and if they plan to stay, but if really poor, it's kind of hard to learn English before coming, and they might just have to learn it while here. You can't live in the U.S. for many years without picking up enough English to communicate every day.

Everyone needs to learn how to speak in Klingon. Then we could go anywhere and sound like badasses.

See, as an Englishman, watching you all go on about 'your' language that is a simplified version of 'our' language that was slowly developed through time and blending many native languages to make a complete language much like how whiskey is made, I have to say just a few points. English is on the most popular language to learn list. English is ironically a language that preaches multiculturalism and diversity working together.

If you are visiting a country you should pick up at least a few emergency phrases, if you are going to move there then you learn as you prepare and continue learning when there. This means when you get there you have a little understanding of what is going on around you but you pick up native uses for words and phrases rather then a text book language. You cannot fully live somewhere without using their language as your main language when in the country - unless with relatives etc then speak your own tongue with them.

You can't blame anyone else for your poor reading comprehension. It does you no good to understand MacBeth if you can't understand something like that comment. Perhaps you should spend a bit more time with every day people and learn how they speak. It's kind of funny that you don't understand. It's not exactly a riddle and I have no intention of explaining it to you.

Context clues, look at the time stamps. You should be able to figure it out, there are only so many possibilities and the correct one is obvious.

Spend my time with everyday people? Who do you think I spend my time with? The people I spend time with are just as normal as anyone else and they can all form proper sentences.

I know figures of speech, idioms, etc. It doesn't make sense in context. If I just randomly threw in a figure of speech in my argument, it would make no sense. I am done arguing with you because you obviously do not understand the point I am trying to make and I will not waste my time reiterating my point any longer.
