SPEAKING ENGLISH AND ANOTHER LANGUAGE

It seems that some Americans have a problem with people speaking another language besides English.

Somehow the idea that it is more helpful, not to say, a sign of higher educational level,

speaking a language besides English, in some areas in America, may be looked totally insulting.

I speak from personal experience.

I worked with the federal government for many years. I moved to Florida in 1999 and experienced this fact. Folks I worked with minded the times I spoke in Spanish, my main language.

Being fluent in both, I had to mispronounce my name so that Americans understood it.

It’s still the case to this day!
