Doesn't shock me. Besides being bilingual is a valuable skill, especially if you can speak Spanish.

For that reason, I will be learning Spanish after I master French.

Lol. My high school Spanish teacher told me that when you go to other countries you better know the lingo because if not, you will have problems. Apparently America is not one of those countries.

People has to stop complaining because that won't change anything. The Hispanic community is growing. Regardless of what happens with the immigration reform that is currently in debate, illegal immigrants will keep coming to the US. USA can build the biggest walls in the world, those people will dig up a tunnel underneath it and end up in the middle of San Diego or somewhere in Texas.

Anyone living in the US NEEDS to learn Spanish; those Hispanics will take over, and it is estimated that they will be the majority of the population by 2030 if I recall correctly. Some Hispanics are unforgiven when you don't speak their language; I am not American but I am dark skinned and I have gotten plenty of dirty looks from them for not replying in Spanish. I actually can speak Spanish but I like to pretend I don't to see their reaction and 9 out of 10 times they give me a sour look.

If you want to have a job 10 years from now, sign up to Spanish classes, start hanging out with cool Spanish speakers and work on those skills. Think like that: why would anyone hire a person whom has skills and speaks one language when they can hire someone whom has the SAME skills and speaks TWO languages?

Great advice.
