There is no official language of the United States, according to the U.S. government. While almost every language in the world is spoken in the United States, Spanish, Chinese, French and German are among the most frequently spoken non-English languages. Ninety percent of the U.S. population speaks and understands at least some English, and most official business is conducted in English.
The U.S. Census Bureau estimates that more than 300 languages are spoken in the United States. The bureau divides those languages into four categories: Spanish; other Indo-European languages, which includes German, Yiddish, Swedish, French, Italian, Russian, Polish, Hindi, Punjabi, Greek and several others; Asian and Pacific Island languages, including Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Thai, Tamil and more; and “all other languages,” which is a category for languages that didn’t fit into the first three categories, such as Hungarian, Arabic, Hebrew, languages of Africa and languages of native people of North, Central and South America
Having read the above excerpt, discuss the importance of language in multicultural America, including in your discussion an argument for or against the idea that “[t]here is no official language of the United States” and how language affects one culture and lifestyle as an immigrant.
You must include:
1. All components of the MLA writing format.
2. Proper grammar, organization, punctuation, and spelling.
3. In text citations recording six or more sources (including all three sources discussed in class).
4. A Works Cited page
5. A clear introduction with a thesis.
6. At least 3 body paragraphs.
7. Issues must be well discussed and show high levels of critical analysis.
8. A conclusion-summary of your arguments and restating your thesis
9. Evidence of a valid argument
