English is a required class in school. the problem is that with so many immigrants, the cost of education is soaring, and it is becoming a bigger challenge. I don't want to teach immigrants English, I want the borders closed lol.

Oh, now come on, Ax. It can be frustrating, but at least that person is working. Not surprisingly we have a lot of that kind of thing here in South Texas. Honeslty, it used to annoy me, but now it doesn't. I really can't imagine how hard it would be working in a place that you don't speak the predominate language, trying to get by to make a better life fgor yourself. Man, life is hard enough without having more difficulty added. I try to be nice and understanding to the Spanish speakers, and since I can speak decently, it usually earns me a nice smile from someone who probably doesn't smile very often

Remember, it's easy to be angry at them... but just think of the strength it takes them to survive. I wonder if most of us wouldn't do the same if we were in thier shoes. I wonder how many of us would have the strength it would take.

Thats where you misunderstand me dear, believe it our not we have them here, I bartend and once in a while get them in the bar, I understand them after just a day or so and communication becomes possible BUT it's on my terms in my country, I dont feel I should have to go to wal mart in Denver CO and have to speak Spanish to get help finding a fishing pole or something thats all......... its great that the work but IF I were to move to another country for whatever reason I would learn their language, I guess to me its obvious that this would be the thing to do if I wanted to prosper in that particular country..... ( although I love it here and would never leave and IF I were to it would be probably Australia or Canada so I would be good to go language wise).
