    language of the country in which you intend to reside.

    My wife's English is quite good: she studied it BEFORE she came here. She actually studied really hard - I have seen her workbooks and talked with her English teacher.

    How MUCH somebody needs to MASTER English is open for debate: my wife's English is better than maybe natural born Americans I have to listen to as they butcher the only language they know.  

    Funny aside: My wife's English teacher and her family also emigrated to America.

    To Arlington texas! She can't understand a damn thing those people say LMAO!

      without learning those three languages, who are you to tell them they can't.

      Why not German or Swahili or Manderin Chinese too?

        One can't make any normal useful observations or comments here.

        Jesus - do NOT even remotely suggest a person exercize. That is a grave transgression.

        Do NOT make any argument about guns other than they were put here by SATAN and anybody who even thinks of owning one is a wanton killer.

        And, as I had so suspected, don't suggest somebody learn the language of a country they are moving to.

        I wonder what else I shouldn't do......

        Wear a seatbelt? probably get me HR'd.

        3 meals a say? ELITIST!!

        Drive on the right side of the road? CONFORMIST!!!

        What a jungle of neuroses this place has become.
