Should English be declared the official language in the U.S.?

  • English is a yes

    English should be the official language of the United States. We have used english since the founding of our country, and it should stay that way. There are many arguments about the immigrants coming from Mexico. Many people say that certain towns should switch to spanish due to great population fluctuations favoring hispanic decent. I do admit that it would be easier for them not to change their language, but we as a country should not change to fit their standards. They should change to fit the people who have been here for years before them. We need to stand up as a country and make english standard. People who don't speak english as their primary language or barely understand english form clicks with other people who are not fluent with english, mostly from the same race. They will stick together staying with the same friends who do not speak english, they will be even more resistant to learning the language knowing they will be backed up by their friends, forming more division. There are reasons why the constitution is written in english, or why our leaders speak english, such as the president, or why battle commands for our army is given in english, its because this is what our country was founded on, the english language. Don't let the minority push around the majority, stand up for what's right for your country and revolt against the people unwilling to change to the American language!

  • Yes, English should be the official language of the U.S

    Some people think that English shouldn't be the official language of the U.S but most of them only speak English themselves. Just about every major form of media is spoken, or projected, in English.It wouldn't make sense for it not to be the official language. Nearly 92% of Americans speak English. It is actually the most common language spoke in the entire world.

  • Yes, English should be the official language of the USA!

    Now, most Americans already speak English. They know it, and some love it. We can correct our language through many things. It will be nice to talk to someone who knows English, as well. We could be UNITED!! Some people think that English is harder than Spanish, but to Americans, Spanish is hard to learn. USA USA!!

  • English deserves to be the official language.

    Yes, because most people living in the US speak English. If you are an immigrant and are in an emergency, but can't speak the language, you will most likely be in danger. Our road signs are mainly in English, so you need to know the language to get around. Some people may say that Spanish should also be considered, but that's almost the same as saying English must be considered as the official language of Mexico. There are many reasons that English should be the official language of the US, those were just naming a few.

  • English should be

    It would stop rivalries , everyone can learn it . Some people think that english shoukldnt be the official langue but everyone can learn it and where ever you go you will hear itn i opopular in the united states that everyone uses it and can learn it like alot of people

  • Yes, English should be the official language of the U.S

    The majority of Americans have grown up speaking English. Everywhere you go, people speak English. In major cities (excluding spanish districts, polish, etc), the main tounge you hear is English. Like in shops, Dinners, and public transportation. Secondly, the main language Literature is printed in is English. The secondary language is Spanish. Some people think English should not be the official language, but imagine all the work it would take learning spanish for your job.

  • English: The Official Language in America

    Yes, English should be the official language in America. In this country, most Americans, and people living in the United States speak English. Wherever you go, the grocery store or the amusement park, there are thousands of people speaking our language. People all over the world in different countries such as Poland, China, Germany, and many more, are learning English, one of the most popular languages in the world. The street signs (road signs) are mostly in English. If somebody didn't know the language, they wouldn't have been able to know which way to go or where they are at. Some people think that Spanish should be the official language instead of English but, most and not all people know the language. Spanish is the official language in Mexico, as well as Spain, so why not make English the official language of America?

  • Yes, it should be

    Because most people in the U.S. Speak English. Our founding fathers also spoke English. The United States also start as a country/colony started by English men from England, therefore we should speak English. Some people think we shouldn't but, all of the signs, official documents, and books are already written in English. It would be hard to change them id our language changes to something else.

  • Yes, English should be the official language of the U.S.

    Most people in the U.S. Already speak English and they are very use to it. Even many other countries are learning English. Some people think that English shouldn't be the official language, but Spanish(or any other language) shouldn't be the official language either when Britain first settled in this land. It would be very hard to get use to a different language.

  • I think that we should make English our official language.

    The majority of the people in the United States speak English. Yes, immigrants come to the United states every day but to be successful adults and workers, as well as human beings in the new country. Plus being bilingual can help you get a job in the United States working world. In conclusion it is already a requirement to learn English if you want to get a good job in America.

  • Soon there will be more Mexicans here than Americans!

    English should not be the official language of the U.S. There happens to be many people coming here from many other countries. Spanish is becoming a well used language in the U.S. Mexicans are moving to the U.S. From Mexico. Right now they are making up a huge part of our population. If the rate continues they will beat the amount of Americans in the U.S. Some people think that English should be the official language of the U.S. But many Mexicans are moving to the U.S. So soon the population will be more Mexicans than Americans.

  • No, English should not be the official language of the United States.

    In my words English should not be the official language. Yes many people know English,but it may be to hard for someone to speak it or to understand English. Many people are moving to the United States and it would be very confusing to that person to have to struggle and learn the language or they could get picked on by other people because they can't speak fluent English. No, English is not the most common language in the world, Chinese is because they have a bigger population. Some people might not want to speak English some people only want to speak the language they were taught and have taught their kids. Also there are plenty of people who can speak two or more languages, I myself speak Spanish and English. My grandparents don't speak English and they get around just fine. Here are my thoughts about making English the official language of The United States of America.

  • English should not be the official language

    English is the most common language spoke in the U.S. But there are different language people speak in the U.S. A reason way is that the U.S. Is divaricated in the world how people speak and some people may made funny of them for the way they speak that what make some people want to learn the language that everyone else speak.

  • No, English should not be the official language of the United States

    Throughout the United States, thousands of people speak the English language. Some people believe that English should become the country's official language, but it wouldn't be fair to force others to learn it if they come from other countries. The people who move here from other places in the world speak languages that are frequently heard and spoken. Also, the United States is a country of diverse and bilingual people who come from all over the world. And lastly, the most obvious reason, English is a very complex language and can be very hard to learn for people of other origins.

  • English should not become the official language of the United States.

    English is the most common spoken language in the U.S, but it should not become the official language. There are many people who don't speak English in the United States. Also, many people come to the U.S from different countries. It will be too hard and confusing for them to learn a whole new language. America is supposed to be "the Melting Pot", but if we make English the official language that will change. The United States is a very diverse country with many people with many different cultures and languages. We should not change that.

  • English should not be the official language of the United States.

    English is the most common spoken language in America, but it still should not become the official language. There are many people in the United States who do not know English. Many people are also coming to the U.S from different countries. It will be too hard and confusing for them to learn a whole new language. It is unfair to them.

  • English should NOT be the official language of the United States.

    There are many people who move to America from other countries that can't speak English. Native Americans are foreign to America. Therefore, the Native American language SHOULD be the official language of the United States. Also, the English language wouldn't be anything without the British settling in the United States. In conclusion, some people think that English should be the official language of the U.S., but I think there should be no official languages so that people who come from other countries can still communicate with family or friends.

  • No, English shouldn't be the official language of the United States

    Some people think that English should be the official language, but its not the only language spoken in the United States. When people move to the United States, they're expecting to be able to keep their language. Along with that, many jobs require more than one language. With English being the official language, you wouldn't just be changing the people, you would also be changing many companies.

  • No english should not be the official language of the United States

    Some people think that english should be the official language but I think that one of the most important ways of showing diversity is by a language. Yes, alot of people do speak english but some parents want to teach their kids a different language. Also some foreigners come to the U.S knowing absolutely no english and because of that we should not change their language because it is the United nations for a reason.

  • No,English should not be the official language of the United States!

    There are many reasons why not. One being,obviously,America is the country full of diversity. Sure others might say,they can learn English,but honestly if you come from a different backround and you only know that language,it'll be too hard. Another English has wasy too many exceptions and rules of our language. If a person comes from,lets say Mexico,and all they knew was Spanish it'll be hard to learn all these rules we grew up with. So,no is my response to if English should be the official language.
