    I think it’s great that we can purchase books in Spanish. I am sure there are many books out there as well in many languages that families can purchase and read to their children. I am slowly working on teaching my children the language that I first learned which is Spanish. I made the mistake of just trying to teach them English first because I didn’t want them to be behind their class because of a possible language issue. Well sadly now my kids can’t communicate well with their grandparents. Reading and teaching a language to our children is important. I think that it’s a great advantage knowing more than just English. Our country has so many languages and it’s so diverse. I love how I can walk into a place speak English or Spanish and then hear another language going on in the same room. Having an open mind on learning a new language or working on the one you already know I think makes you much more intelligent. I work with 3 women that are fluent in Serbian I think it’s great! I’ve even picked up a couple words!! I even went to my library and checked out a book!! This goes also back to the article I read online last week. It was about Rick Santorum when he made the comment about Puerto Rico. He said that if Puerto Rico wanted to become a state they need to make English the official language of the state. I am not Puerto Rican but my kids and husband are. I took offense not because of my family but because I am Hispanic. Many puerto ricans already speak English there anyway. Why did he feel the need to say that? Why does that country need to change their “official” language? I think it’s just plain ignorance. Don’t tell a country or someone to make their language officially English. Be proud of where you come from and what you are. This country is made up of all different cultures and mixed nationalities. That is what makes this country united. We all come from a different background/culture. Whether we continue the traditions or not it’s still part of you. Don’t forget where you come from! I personally would love to learn sign language which isn’t a cultural thing but it’s a different way of communicating. If it’s offered at Morton College I will take it. Vented just a little bit…lol 🙂

      It’s okay to vent here! Thanks Yvette! There has been a lot on the news about bilingualism! It can not be a negative thing-you are so right! xoxo
