71. OK, maybe I'll give you the benefit of the doubt...
Adults have a harder time learning a second language if they were not taught that language in school growing up. Now that is the reason why I mentioned those nations I mentioned in my other post, because they do precisely that, today. You cannot wave a magical wand and all of the sudden all Immigrants speak English at even a rudimentary level. You may think its easy to learn a second language, but its not, so don't expect too much from the first generation immigrant. Its a non-issue to begin with, by the Second and Third Generations, they are either Monolingual in English, or Bilingual by default.
