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

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?

@5Z958TVIndependentfrom Michigan  answered…3mos

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.

Immigrants (going to any country) should have a basic understanding of the country's language. If you go to France, you will need French, so if you come to the US, you will probably need English)

No, but no special protections should be afforded immigrants based solely on an inability to communicate with English-speaking citizens.

No, however, our country is predominately English based, so it would behoove them to learn English. I used to lived in Taiwan, and I learned Mandarin to survive there and show respect to others.
