Yeah, the Mexicans really did a great job pouring in. Every company is trying to find ways to cater to them, you see billboards in Spanish everywhere in Texas and other southern states. Funny thing is, they’re super macho and won’t wear glasses, so the billboards use extra large, bold typefaces.
@ alabama not a sir Also, given the amount of countries that speaks Spanish in America, I’d think it would be rather more popular than any other language. After all it doesn’t state if it’s north or south one, so let’s count them both.
What’s wrong with the second one is a) She thinks there is more than one Eiffel Tower and B) she thinks that it (they) is in Las Vegas. Isn’t it kind of common knowledge that the Eiffel Tower is in Paris? perhaps she thinks they are movable?
The biggest problem with America is the fact that people think we should all only speak ONE language. Are any of you idiots that think this way aware that being able to speak multiple languages is a sign of higher intelligence? In every other country in the world its mandatory for you kids to start learning multiple languages by the time they are in 3rd grade. Not only being able to speak but also the ability to read and write them also. There is no pride when it comes to stupidity and narrow mindedness. If we want to be a proud culture, how about a little education?! I find it sad that in today’s world people have the grammar skills of a 5 year old at high school levels. The more stupidity breeds the more I feel like the movie Idiocracy was more of a prediction of whats to come then a fictional comedy.
The United States does not have an official language. There is no official statement on what the country is supposed to be speaking by the government. There is no governmentally-endorsed national language.
There is, however, a lingua franca that happens to be English in most states, and most of the southwest is effectively bilingual.
