That's the same thing where I live as well. The official language is French and the majority of jobs require candidates to be bilingual(English/ French) in order to get a good job.

I don't see the problem. Spanish is incredibly easy to learn. English is much harder. Suck it up and do what you need to get ahead.

i am a nurse and it's so frustrating to not be able to communicate with spanish speaking patients!  i'm going to re-learn it using Rosetta Stone, just so that i'm not feeling left behind. But they should be the ones learning english.  Nobody was trying to cater to me when i visited a foreign country and couldn't speak the language.  and i was only there for one week.  if you plan to live somewhere, legally or illegally, you should at least speak the common language.

Spanish is easy for you not for me and as someone who had to learn English it may be hard but it was necessary for me so why not for them. Again i will say America is the only country where a large population must no learn a new language to appease a large set of immigrants many who are illegal. But i will learn Spanish because i want to be the best candidate i can be but i hate being forced to do something and i don't agree with being told well just because you have too. I also think making jobs just for ppl who are bilingual pushes black Americas out of jobs but okay.

I agree. Where I work we get some Spanish speaking customer and they get upset when I tell them that we don't have any Spanish speaking people in our store. It is a little bit irritating. Especially since I took German for 7.5 years and not Spanish, that language is no use where I live. I can't learn Spanish in a classroom setting, I have to do it on my own or learn from friends and I don't have time for that. I think they should learn English first, because although we don't have an official language, they know that most of the country speaks English. No hate, I love learning about other cultures and languages, but I shouldn't be denied a job because I don't speak a language that people who came here out of nowhere, speak. That's some sh*t. My district manager was doing calls for interviews and he's asking everyone if they can speak Spanish, when my store is located in a mostly White, Indian, and Black market. -____-

Wasn't the south west of the United States part of Mexico at one time?

English has become a necessity in many foreign countries ... why

because they need to be able to communicate with the people spending money

the case with spanish in america is no different

instead of fighting it and having to capitulate anyway, we should learn from it and use some of the same techniques to get our agendas met ... ie population numbers that can't be ignored, collective buying, etc

or another industry, when dealing with the public/end customers you have to be able to speak to the people buying your services

but for example, there isn't a need to speak spanish in IT

hindi might be helpful but it certainly is not required

I had to learn English, it's not my first language.America is not the only country. Switzerland has four official languages and they teach their kids all four of them in school, unlike this country which enables people to complain and be stupid.  It's not like Hispanics popped up the last few years, smh. I'm sorry I just have little sympathy for people who complain about things. Elementary, middle and high schools have language classes as well as community colleges. There's also a friekin library in every city(which is free). If you wait until you're an adult to learn a foreign language you kind of deserve to be pushed out.
