Do you think if you moved to Mexico the Mexican government is going to teach public school classes in English or Vietnamese or Sri Lankan? If you want to live in the USA you must assimilate and learn the English language. How on earth can an immigrant contribute to our society if he is not able to read our road signs?

No, America doesn't have an official language. If you move to Sweden is it required to learn Swedish? No, it's just suggested

@4Y847STIndependentfrom Michigan  answered…2yrs

No, but schools, hospitals, government services, etc. should not be required to provide translation services; with the exception of those immigrants who have, or plan to have children - they should be required to learn English and teach it to their children, who will be required to attend American schools.

@95VH354Independent from North Carolina answered…3hrs

Free language courses should be offered to immigrants, but learning English should not be required by law.

@95TZKW3 from Missouri answered…10hrs

No, they should not be required but they should be highly encouraged to.

@95TJ5KJ from Pennsylvania answered…22hrs

No, and interpreter, translator, and educational services should be available to provide pathways to citizenship

@95TCNW4 from Iowa answered…1 day

No, and everyone should be taught Spanish and other common languages from a young age

@95T982XProgressive from Wisconsin answered…1 day

Yes, but the government should provide free and accessible courses, and certain individuals should be exempt. Citizens should be required to learn another language in school to promote multiculturalism.

@95T8SWSfrom Washington  answered…1 day

Not required but allowing free language learning courses for people interested

@95SYLYG from Florida answered…1 day

No, but we should provide free language learning courses and advocate for their use.

@95SXTX2 from Montana answered…1 day

The requirement shouldn't be universal, but should apply to certain jobs (e.g. lawyer). The requirement should be waived on an individual basis if the government can't provide language education to those affected by it.

No, English isn't the national language, so it wouldn't make sense to enforce any regulations regarding languages spoken in The US.

No, naturally their languages and ours will mix to create a whole new language. Depriving immigrants from their own language is racist and xenophobic.

@95P4Q64Democrat from Virginia answered…4 days

I don't they should be REQUIRED but i do they should just so they'll be able to know whats going on around them.

@95NW7FH from Georgia answered…4 days

@95NVHB7 from New York answered…4 days

Yes, but they choose they can’t be forced so if they don’t want to they don’t have to and provide free language learning courses to those who want to learn

@95MZ2S5 from Minnesota answered…4 days

No, but the government should put up a website that allows immigrants to learn basic English phrases.

@95NSKC8 from Colorado answered…4 days

I believe that it would be easier if immigrants did know english and if they did want to learn the government should provide free language learning courses for those who would like to learn english.

@95NS52TIndependent from Georgia answered…4 days

They shouldn't be required to learn English but the option should be offered to them.

@95NQ8B5 from Texas answered…4 days

@95NQHD4 from North Carolina answered…4 days

I mean, it might be hard to live here if you don't speak the same language as everyone else. But that doesn't you should should be forced to learn it against your will.

@95NGMH7 from North Carolina answered…4 days

@95N8N5T from North Carolina answered…4 days

Yes, because it is very difficult to function in a country when you can't understand what others are saying. Children should not have to handle all communication between their family and the outside world because their parents are not willing to put in the effort to learn a language. However, the government should provide free language learning courses. Not all immigrants have the money to pay for education.

@95MTDDQ from Virginia answered…5 days

No but warn them it'll be harder to live in a mostly English-speaking place

@95MRVWM from Virginia answered…5 days

@95MJGSB from Colorado answered…5 days

No, but offer classes for English so they can learn. It can be a small maybe state funded thing that won’t take up too much money out of all the money the state has.

@95MB5MW from Arkansas answered…5 days

No, but the government should incentive immigrants learning English

@95M6GVP from California answered…5 days

@95M4KHD from California answered…5 days

Yes, but still have multilingual translations from government documents and services

@95M2RFBWomen’s Equality from Oregon answered…5 days

I think that the shouldn’t be required but maybe be considered because it is important to be able to communicate with others
