People who arrive in the U.S. might not be able to speak English. The most significant problems that immigrants face are language barrier and assimilation.

When Taylor, who is not of that culture, ventures into an area “reserved” for, Taylor claims it “felt it was off limits” (kingsolver 153) to her because people not related to that particular culture never dared to venture in because of the stereotype that they hold. This makes the people who are different culturally think they will not fit in unless they either stick with people of the same cultural or manage to blend in with the Americans. Esperanza had to start speaking English more to blend in (Kingsolver 221). This was because she had just travelled to the Cherokee reservation and needed to create a false identity and “the life history [she] had invented for [herself].

In his case it was more a self-preservation than creating the identity by conscious abstaining from expressing his opinion directly.
There are those who feel that diversity is not a necessary thing, and do not want their children exposed to different ways of life (UNSECO, n.d.). This can be a hindrance to a child or an adult. Many people that have not been exposed to different cultures at some point will rely only how they think the world operates and what to expect from it (UNSECO, n.d.). Diversity is not always just what background you come from, but it is any unique difference between human beings. We can learn from people who have different beliefs and perspectives on things (UNSECO,
356), this proves that our priorities are focused elsewhere and not on our language and culture. This compares to the previous article because without proper funding we are lacking the ability to learn, therefore having to teach ourselves; which leads to improper learning. In “Do You Speak American” Macneil says, “ You do have to be bilingual in this country, which means you can be very adept at slang”(MacNeil Pg.311), this goes against the first two articles because it is basically saying that you have to do be very fluent in slang but if we were educated in proper English then we would not know
In the opinion of Hans Junior, his father was part of an old, decrepit Germany--one that allowed everyone else to take it for the proverbial ride while its own people suffered,” (Zusak, 104). Today, similar disputes happen between families when children support something their parents don’t. Sometimes, children are able to reunite and reconcile with their parents. But often, like with Hans Junior, they never get the chance.

With nations becoming increasingly connected through mediums like the internet, the world has changed substantially within the last decade. It’s a time where Spanish songs such as Luis Fonsi’s Despacito can top the American music charts, where traveling to the other side of the world takes a few hours instead of weeks, and more importantly, where states like California and Utah are continuing to promote and provide for a growing demand for bilingual education through dual-immersion programs. Although the states have great strides in the right direction, bilingual education should not be encouraged but rather be required for K-12 students. Because bilingual education integrates languages into the student’s lifestyle through instruction, it enriches the lives of children, the adults they will become, and the community to which they will contribute to. If students begin their bilingual education as early as kindergarten, they are more likely to successfully acquire a second language.
