I speak some Spanish because I serve an Hispanic clientele. I still think ballots should be in English, signs in public places should be in English and children should learn English (only) in school. They can brush up on their Spanish at home.
I had an Hispanic housekeeper for 20 years who hardly learned a word of English in two decades!! I had signs in Spanish all over the house.
Why are you so supportive of Spanish? Are you Hispanic? Why don't you want to assimilate?
Also, you must be young and fully indoctrinated.
