To recognize the historical fact that the United Sates has been an overwhelmingly English speaking nation since it was created and that its constitution and foundational documents are in English. 5. To recognize that while the people of the United States value and respect diversity, they want to preserve English as their common language and therefore immigrants have the responsibility to learn English. 6. To conform to the majority of the states (31) that already have made English their official language.
In fact, by merely eliminating the bilingual and multilingual courses, the government would have millions of dollars to spend on foreign language courses for all students. Also, basic education courses could be helped by the elimination of such bilingual courses that are currently suffering from a severe lack of funds. The seriousness of this debate can not be underestimated, for to do so would lead to the reprimand of Untied States history. It is currently in our own hands as to the fate of our fellow Americans as to what road we shall travel. For to create some sort of dual linguistic society would change the scope of the moral cloth that makes Americans who we are.
Let’s Make It Official Should English be the country’s official language? Speaking English in the United States has always been natural to us U.S. citizens. However, it should be the official language to lower the cost of multilingual and bilingual services. The article “Should English Be the Official Language of the United States?” by Jayne Keedle is about the debate whether United States should use English as the official language. English should be the official language of the U.S. because it unifies us, it reduces the cost of providing multilingual services and it has widespread support.
Official Language Of The U.S. Roberto Dominguez English Comp II Professor Sipple October 17, 2011 Abstract The reason for my topic is to let people know that the United States should have their own official language, which should be English. My focus is to show how much the Unites States would benefit by making English the official language. I mention some sources on how it will benefit us and also how it has cost us to be a multilingual country by spending millions on services that comes in many languages. In countries all over the world have their own official language that most people talk in that certain country? If you go to France everyone talks French, if you go to Spain people speak Spanish, if you go to Germany everyone there speaks German.
Assimilation implies that newcomers should dress the way Americans do. But many national and religious traditions require a certain way of dressing for men and women. These people may look more noticeable and different in the crowd, however nobody should force them to wear clothes that they do not want to. An integral part of every culture is holidays. The immigrants who celebrate American holidays do not want to give up their own ones.
If we understand why we fear the book and address that fear, then we would not be so quick to ban it. We shouldn't shy away from open discussion and conversation, since it will be the best thing for us in this situation. By taking away from our students the opportunities to see different styles of literature, historical thought and the mistakes from our past, we deny them the right to see the full advantages of freedom of speech and
In conclusion, people should express their own personality and style without, being forced to convert to a new country’s national culture. Forcing an immigrant to change culture, language, and religion is against the 1st amendment and should not be broken based on our founding father’s laws. Forcing a non-resident to adapt to a new country is morally wrong and should not be allowed. Being an immigrant, this will be extremely hard on being unique. Even if someone is less fortunate and was born in a third world country, it doesn't make it any better if you force them to learn your culture and
Although, at this point in time, the United States does not have a National language I still believe a helpful program should be put into action. As an alternative to removing the responsibility from immigrants and placing it upon ourselves to lessen the language barrier via “Con. Span.,” we should be working with those entering the United States by guiding them into the direction of becoming a positive contributor to our society. Jay Nordlinger is right, in the sense that American’s should not have to learn another’s language, but that does not mean that we should sit back and watch those around us
To start is their path for undocumented aliens to earn citizenship, as well as reforming insurance. This is the democratic promise of citizenship to those still struggling for freedom and how they will achieve it. Also from a democratic stand point the immigration laws of today do not reflect democratic values or serve security and plan on real reform. There is no solution in establishing a massive new status of second-class workers; that betrays values and hurts all working people. In defending the democratic point of view, undocumented immigrants with in our borders who clear a background check, work hard and pay taxes should have a path to earn full participation in
I think so, even though people maybe think otherwise. Without the English language where would we be? Who knows, we could all be speaking French or Spanish, however that is not the case. Reality is, the English language is one of the world’s official languages and it is the official language in a lot of countries. English is also the dominant business language and it is necessary for people to speak English if they are to enter a global workforce.
