Why is his special need more important than all of ours?

Had to attend a training today at our local hospital on a specific surgery.  Class was full.  Instructor starting speaking and the woman one table over started translating what the instructor was saying to the one person in the room who didn't speak or understand English, which made it difficult for many of us to hear the list of instructions. I expected the instructor to say something but she said nothing to the loud woman.   

I just don't understand why his need to have an interpreter was more important then our hearing the instructions.

what say you?

Court interpreters manage to do it worhout disrupting the proceeding. Your hospital was in the wrong for not handling it appropriately.

You are in our country, learn our language. People shouldn't be granted citizenship if they don't have a working knowledge of our language speaking as a woman who married an immigrant. The driving test should ONLY be given in English.

 I would have raised my hand and said I can't hear what the speaker is saying. That's just me.
