10. There are plenty immigrants who came to America and never learned Enligh
Edited on Fri Nov-25-11 07:15 PM by SpartanDem
I've heard plenty of stories about someones great-grandparent or grandparent who emigrated here from the 'old country', but and never learned English. I personally have friends of Arab descent who grandparents emigrated 20+ years ago and still don't speak English. Historically it's just not that uncommon for some in that first group to never learn their new country's langauge.
