why is this a thing?

english is popular and spoken everywhere, the language of your grandparents isn't. i've known more then a few hispanics that couldn't speak spanish but maybe they could understand it. it's not a meme but a way of life

Man, I don't understand why some people find speaking a second language such a momentous task.
When I was 9 years old I understood English well enough that I figured out how to switch Cartoon Network to the English language track so I could watch my Ed, Edd 'n Eddy and Powerpuff Girls reruns in English and I never switched them back.

In America, nothing of note or import is in any language other than English. Maybe some warning signs or manuals in French of Spanish. You would have to go far out of your way to learn a language, it's not something that we just casually do.

yeah, but it would be a giberish mess that Germans wouldn't be able to understand. What is Cajun French?

Also, I know parents that took their small kids to the USA and refused to speak spanish to them so they could learn the language quickly instead of having that weird Spanglish that causes them to seclude themselves to only hang out with other Spanish speaking kids.
>>
>>79684810
We do. I don't know what that anon is taking about. Tons of people here speak a second language.

We do, but since virtually everything is in English, there's almost no point in doing so.

I'm half Ottawa Indian and no, I am not one of the like 5 people alive that can fluently speak the language.
>>
>>79684859
>Unless they travel for work, those people are idiots.
Why?
>>
>>79684810
Yes but most people just memorize vocabulary and phrases. Very few can speak the language to any real degree while learning it in school, let alone remember any of it years later.

>>79684831
No they don't.
>>
>>79684893
Because as previously stated, there's no point in learning a second language unless it's for some function.
>>
>>79684810
Of course we do, and contrary to popular belief, there are plenty of people here who speak a second language. It's just not as common as it is in Europe, partly because it's not as much of a necessity here as it is there. Canada mostly speaks English, and most Mexicans who come to the US either learn English, or make sure that their children do.

it's actually mandatory but unless you have relatives or live in an area with people that speak the language there's little point.

with that said in the south spanish is everywhere, it's kind of annoying dealing with older hispanics that don't speak english. i'm tempted to take it up again. in new york yiddish is common i think. you also got china town in areas and my downtown has Vietnamese instead. so it's there but easier to speak english

That's because of inmigrants.

Most americans that claim they speak a second language

Know spanish but from memory, eg they know how to translate but they know fuck all of how the grammar works, so their sentences are understandable but awkward.

Know French but pronounce it horribly, like they don't even try. So they just all gave up and went to Spanish 101

Tried to learn Japanese or Chinese and can't use the kanji at all. They can just hold a verbal conversation at best or just order from a restaurant.

Sure, you might get one that does in fact know the language fluently but that's probably because they were sent to the country by their rich parents to learn it and/or just moved there.

>>79684954

I can hold a conversation in German, but I am not fluent at all, like I said, they just do it by memory because of how is taught in class.

The level of retardation is huge here:

> Hispanic
> Race

this is just a fucking word invented by american for all people speaking spanish but their retarded population actually thinks it's a real ethnicity.

Mexicans: Half-Indians Half-White ( Spaniards ) for the most at various degrees ( Mestizos, Castizos, Harnizos ) and White elite.
Dominicans: Mulattoes or Quadroon, well they have black blood.
Puerto Ricans: Same shit but more light skinned, some african features.
Colombians: Mestizos or Mulattoes, or a mix of the three races, and a minority of white.
Argentines: White & Castizos for natives, Mestizos for the northern population and immigrants.
Uruguay: White predominantly, and mulattoes on shitty places.
Peru: Indians and Mestizos
Spain: White and Europeans, predominantly of Mediterranean type ( but differents from north africans and arabs )

>I think Europeans underestimate just how universal English is becoming
Dear anon did you have an ictus while doing that post?

No, why?
English is becoming a lingua franca, and I often encounter Europeans who are surprised that English monolinguals get by just fine.
>>
>>79686486
Well, yes, anon. It's a US-American thing. You have people that don't speak Spanish or native languages, that have never left the country, whose only exposition to Hispanic culture is the couple of times they've visited their grandmother, and whose claim to being Hispanic would be laughed out by the rest of the continent. But for some reason they insist on calling themselves Hispanic even if real Hispanos consider them nothing less than hopeless gringos.
>>
>>79687304

and this feeds into the stereotype of Americans being ignorant fools who think the whole world revolves around them and them alone,

tell me: is this truly the American dream? Assimilation? not intergration?
>>
>>79687409
>I often encounter Europeans who are surprised that English monolinguals get by just fine.

This is because Europeans don't understand that not everyone lives on a continent consisting of a million fractured tiny countries, each with their own language. The US is large and we all (or most of us anyway) speak English, there's no need for most people to learn anything else.

First off, I'm Canadian, and have spent time studying other languages. But distance and the prevalence of English media is something that influences all of English North America.

I don't think the world revolves around the US, but when there are European countries where almost everyone under 30 speaks English, when you have Vietnamese elites talking to Hong Kong businessmen in English because it's easier for both sides, the reality is that English is more globally useful

No liberals in America are opposed to self-defense. They might support gun control but that's different. European liberals are full-blown insane "if a muslim breaks into your home and rapes your daughter you should just watch politely and give him a tissue to clean up after". There's a popular British comedian who does a whole bit on how wrong it is to kill anyone for any reason, including if they have you tied up with a gun to your head and are raping your wife while you watch.

Most parents are on the opposite very concerned with their children learning proper English as good and early as possible. To the point where whatever language their family once used is sidelined until later or even intentionally ignored forever.

What's most important. Being bilingual in a country that generally doesn't use your language. Or growing up just like everyone else?
