    Not Just English And The U.s.

    I think anyone planning on moving to a foreign country should take the time to learn the native language. You can't expect an entire country to cater to >your< needs.  I moved to Japan.  Now sure when I first got here I couldn't really speak Japanese, but I was enrolled in...

    Y'know What Cracks Me Up About This Experience Group?

    I agree with the premise totally, but the title says "Us." Not "US" or "U.S." even. Cringe worthy. If you're gonna publicly criticize something, be careful of how you do it!

    I'm All For Multiculturalism

    I love to learn about other cultures and think that people should hold on to many things that make them belong to their cultures.  I think that if someone speaks other languages, that is great! I also think that English should be the national language of the United States...

    Please...

    If I moved to France, and tried to get employed at a Café there, I would be required to know French.  At least basic restaurant communication, like the menu items and things like, Vous Desirez?  So, why in the world should someone be able to become employed...

    Or Navajo

    LOL Like us English did when we got there all those years ago. We should all be speaking Navajo or whatever Native Language was around.   Only Joking. Just this page sounded fairly intolerant. Many of the Current US Citizens only Spoke Polish, german or their...

    In That It's Practical, Yes...

    But on a moral level setting that as a requirement is a little silly. Consider, if you will, the languages that were spoken here by the natives. Who here knows a word of them?
