My personal view on the matter is that the increasing amount of services in Spanish is only a reflection of the growing hispanic population, and that when there is such a large community of people that speak the language, there isn't a great need for them to learn English as there was in the past. That is NOT to say that most of them DON'T know how to speak English, because many of them do. I sort of feel like it's just the change of populations over time, and that it's happening all over the world.
He made the argument that if you went to another country, such as Italy for example, that you shouldn't expect people to have signs and speak English just to accommodate you. I said, however, that when you go to Italy, or Spain, or many other countries, you DO see signs in English, and are able to communicate in English. How is that any different than what is going on here?
I'm not denying that we have an immigration problem, but what about the language aspect? Do you think there should be these services in Spanish or other languages of large populations? Is this a bad thing that's happening, or is it actually really incredible that languages are being spread and mixed around the world?
