Should English Be the Official Language of the US?
An immediate change is needed.
In our own Country, when making phone calls to the majority of Companies, we must press 1 for English.
This is not a Country that has recently merged with another Country of foreign speakers. The 50 states of America has been a Country (The U.S.A.) for hundreds of years, and we have known no other Language in this Country.
So, why, I ask you… is there a need for “Press 1 for English”?
Once a representative does come on the line to answer your questions, you guessed it…. Not an American. You will have to repeat yourself many times to get the barely-English-speaking individual to understand what you are saying. And needless to say, you will have to ask them to repeat themselves numerous times. And the majority of the time, people complain because their issues were never resolved (when calling support).
When Americans are ill or injured and must rush to the local Emergency Room, guess who will be your Doctor? Not an American, and not someone you can understand. But in fact, you will have to ask the nurse to please translate for you what the foreign speaking, bad English gentleman just said.
Each time you receive calls from “Unknown” or “Restricted”, guess who is on the other end of the line? A poor-English-speaking telemarketer. These are companies that most would not purchase from when they were all American. Why do they think that having foreigners making the call would increase the chances?
The answer is because our Government has allowed foreigners to not only move into our Country, but they are also enforcing their every demand.
Yes, there need to be changes made in the Great U.S.A. And this needs to be one of them.
