No, but it should be made a priority to offer them the opportunity to learn it. 5 years ago from a Green in Potwin, KS
They should not be required but they should be able to speak fluently enough to the point of being able to converse with others. Just as immigrants must learn English, Americans must learn other languages also. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Charlotte, NC
Yes, it is the language of our countries most important documents. We should also remove multilingual translations and the government should provide free language courses. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Waite Park, MN
If they want to work here and make a home here, they should need to have some path to learn English. It's great to celebrate diversity, but without a minimum level of common understanding (language) it's difficult for societies to function. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Coyote, CA
Yes, and demonstrate fluency to earn citizenship. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Candler, NC
If they seek U.S. citizenship, they should still be required to be conversant and capable of reading and writing in English. Otherwise, they should be encouraged to learn English and have available resources that they can access. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Newcastle, WY
No, but encourage English education and provide access to ESL programs. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Highland Park, NJ
Yes, and students in the US should be required to learn a foreign language as well. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Festus, MO
It should be their choice. If I were to move to a foreign country I would want to communicate so I would try to learn that language. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Franklin, TN
English is not the official language of the United States, so why should they be required to learn it?. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Elizabethtown, NY
I believe they have to speak English to become citizens and that should remain the requirement. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Salisbury, MD
The immigrants who have the most difficulty learning English are mothers with young children to care for. They may not have the opportunity to attend classes. Also, some people have an easy time learning a second language and others find it more... 5 years ago from a Democrat in Nedrow, NY
Yes, keep everything in the official language of the country and provide interpreters for other languages. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Spring Hill, FL
No, America does not have an official language. 5 years ago from a Democrat in Sergeant Bluff, IA
