Hooray! Learning English is something that surely needs to be encourcaged. Its too bad we don't have the spine of our forefathers and make learning English essential to becoming a functioning citizen of the U. S. Losing one common language that everyone in the coutnry spoke, regardless of how many other languages one spoke, promoted assimilation and unification.

I cannot adequately express my delight at this phenomenal opportunity. As someone who cannot speak English at all, it's amazing that I found this helpful tidbit while I was scrolling through a message board in a language I do not understand. What luck!

I can't tell if the spelling errors are intentionally ironic or ...?
