I Go to Country X As a Tourist, I Take a Guidebook and ,,,

...maybe have to stumble with the language, ask for help, and try my best.

But if I move to country X, I LEARN THE LANGUAGE.

This is pathetic that it even is an issue. 

Of course many that claim not to understand English really do - remember that...

I like this statement the best "This is pathetic that it even is an issue. ". That's right. We shouldn't even be having this discussion. IGNORANCE should NOT BE THE NORM it should be THE EXCEPTION.

Unfortunately, the debate is fueled by puerto rico. Puerto Rico and Guam are as close to being states as possible without actually being in the union.
