Re: Why doesn't the United States make both English and Spanish as official languages?

English is what we speak here. You should learn it if you want to live here. I am not saying you can't speak your native language if you are an immigrant but you should be able to speak English. Isn't everyone there (except the native Americans) descendants of an immigrant? Isn't Spanish the second...

Re: Why doesn't the United States make both English and Spanish as official languages?

Why doesn't the United States make both English and Spanish as official languages?

I was very impressed on my last visit to the USA because the English language was not necessary, since the majority of workers at hotels, restaurants, taxi drivers, tourist guides, etc. speak Spanish. I wonder why the United States does not consider both English and Spanish as official languages?
