Beyond survival English
from Los Angeles Times
"Press one for English, marque dos por Español." Few instructions seem more grating to many English-speaking Americans — a sign, many fear, that we are becoming a bilingual country. Their fears are misguided. Yes, America's foreign population has grown dramatically in recent decades — from just 10 million in 1970 to more than 42 million today. Yes, nearly half these newcomers have Latino origins. Yes, roughly one-fifth of Americans speak a language other than English at home. But immigrants and their children understand better than anyone: English is the language of success in America.
