Americans make me laugh.
The way they insist that people speak only English (especially at work ) you’d think English is the only language of America. Meanwhile, people from a lot of different countries live in America but white Americans who speak only English ignore this because they don’t care about people who speak other languages.
America has no official language but you should hear them harping on about how English is America’s official language, and other people must speak it, and if they don’t want to then they should leave America, etc You’d think it was written somewhere that if you don’t speak English in America, you’ll be put in jail.
It’s important for English speakers in America to understand that they’re not the only ones who live in the country. In Nigeria, there are lots of people who speak all sorts of different languages, but we respect each person’s language because we have come to understand how wrong it is to separate a person from their language.
