Sorry but I will NOT learn or speak or try to understand Spanish

Posted by   + Show Post

I learn, speak, and only attempt to understand those that speak English.

I bet that is what the natives said about the Europeans when we crossed the ocean.

Quoting Anonymous:

Well, holy shit! Lets start shooting their asses when they start crossing the border so our country doesn't turn into a shit hole like Mexico.

Quoting Ashleeduhh:

By 2050, the Hispanics will be the majority...just sayin. It'll be even more important to know then. I'm not fluent but I could probably get by if I needed to.

Lol! Your so funny! But it's actually true PENDEHA! Just like people who read a lot,those who learn new languages have a higher IQ! Look it up!

Quoting thetrollcat:

From your reply, your intelligent is limited to the insulting ***wipe section of college of education ;)

Quoting beehive7:

I don't think anybody's rights would be TAKEN cuz you don't know any Spanish or choose not to learn it. Although I'm pretty sure your intelligence might go up a few points if you did!

Good idea. You'd have far more HIGH EARNING marketable skills if you learned a business language like Mandarin. I never understood the huge push to learn Spanish. YAY, I can now be the manager at McDonalds, work at a call center, or translate at the free clinic. What exciting job opportunities!

Being bilingual is useful. Being bilingual in a business language makes far more sense financially than learning a language to help the poor who refuse to learn English. 

Hate me if you like for speaking the truth.

Discrimination again I would sue the state and the business. Being that I am deaf I would sue.

Quoting Anonymous:

My aunt in California has run into that issue while applying for work. You either speak spanish or you don't get the job.

Quoting thetrollcat:

I would love that state to require I had to learn it, I would sue the state. That is against my freedom and the equal opportunity RIGHTS to employment

Quoting Anonymous:

I'm some states it's a requirement in order to get a job. To me, that's a problem and I myself am native american. It's not okay to sneak into a country, refuse to learn the language predominantly spoken there, and then force people to change for you. And yes, I understand that the US has no official language but it's blatantly obvious that the majority of legal residents speak english. This debate is even in english lol.

Well, lets make it legal for all americans to shoot their illegal hispanic asses.

Quoting Ashleeduhh:

It'd not do much new ones ad it I'd the current ones reproducing at the rate that they do.

Don't know about her, but we're learning both German and Spanish (i know more German than Spanish). Our kids will learn them as well as it creates more opportunities for our family.


Quoting thetrollcat:

Oh im sure you LIMIT yourself as well, how many languages do you speak>????

Quoting amanda_mom89:

Ok. Doesn't bother me if you want to limit yourself.
