Should America Be Bilangual?

there is a saying that goes if you are an american, you speak one language.

but tell me , should american as a country adapt to other languages, except English.

I personnally think is no use. Thats like telling Michael Jordan he needs to learn how to play football.

what do you think?

yes Hispanics are awesome. i love the way the Mexicans talk. it sound so funny but yet refreshing. I now have a funny Mexican boy in my class. he always cracks me up. On the first day of class, while introducing himself, he stood in front of the whole class and said quote" I'm Legal, i have my green Card". The whole class was rolling.

i don't call it a taken over. They are just expanding their boundaries. I have live in places where there were no Spanish people(hagerstown) and now i live in north Carolina and there are many. I love the Latinos. I also love mexican food.

We all want the damn American dream.

Just because a country translate directions/instructions into other languages for people who speak that language to understand doesn't mean that is Bilingual.

no one ever said that it was bilingual. we are just saying that they(america) still manage to translate signs for other people.

People are saying that Spanish is going to take over English pretty soon in the states. i don't see that happening at all.

i think it is. they are growing faster than ever.

Sorry dear. America is already bi-lingual. Have you been to the hospitals around the US yet? With over 14 million hispanics in the US. . . you can't stop that moving train.

Let the chips fall where they may. Not bothered by that at all. My sons have a "knack" for Puerto Rican girls. . .no problem there at all!

BUENO!

ENGLISH IS THE MAIN LANGUAGE SPOKEN IN AMERICA. I THINK AMERICA AS A WHOLE SHOULD ADAPT SPANISH AS ANOTHER LANGUAGE BECAUSE LATIN AMERICANS/SOUTH AMERICANS ARE THE FASTEST GROWING MINORITIES IN THE US.

O.K I was right. So there is no need to be bilingual since they accept most languages. Even Samolian language is now being widely accepted.

they should because it would benefit a lot a people but sometimes i feel left out when i see some stores and signs in spanish. you'll think they would translate for the non-spanish speaking folks.

If we are talking about the American advantage YES America should adopt a foreign language preferably spanish while english remains the standard or unifying language. Tho!, some might not dim it necessary cos' even with out adoption most Americans speak a variety of languages because of their diversity.
