So through Facebook someone made a comment about how irritated they were because a commercial switched from English to Spanish with English Subtitles…

And then of course someone writes that this is USA and people should be talking English, etc etc…

Well… if you must know the number 1 second language most spoken in the United States is Spanish at 80% followed by Vietnamese at 2%.

The two languages are not shocking… what is shocking is the difference between the two languages… woow… that’s crazy…

I think it’s great the media is finally focusing on a positive!!!    Multilingualism and diversity are such good things.  They help us understand others and give us a greater variety of opportunities.

So here’s thing… In most other countries, it is favored for a person to be bilingual or multilingual including Latin America.  The USA is one of the only countries who hasn’t figured that out yet.

And now that they are finally trying to change for good, people are resisting.  It’s sad that people are in so much pain that they cannot see how great it is that the media is supporting cultural diversity and multilingualism.

If one was wise as an American, they would learn a second language… which of course should be Spanish due to the high percentage of Spanish speaking individuals in the United States…

Spanish is becoming a necessity for those who live in the United States.  A third language would be a bonus!

I love that we are moving towards tolerance, acceptance, and openness… at least it’s begun by showing bilingual commercials on the television!!!
