this paper make sense for a Narrative Writing ?

English only! Please The idea of teaching my daughter’s Spanish after everything I have been going trough is not pleasant. Besides, they refuse to learn it anyway. My daughter’s is now almost 8 and 12 years old, and they are is not interested in learning any other language besides English. There are a lot of states in the US where the new “English only law” is about to be approved. It is hard for me being Hispanic to take a side in this matter, but if I have to choose a side it would be only English. I worked for a Honeywell aerospace twelve years ago, where I was getting paid the same amount of money for being bilingual. Why even bother to teach my daughter to learn a different idiom, when the truth is if you know two languages, good for you! This is wrong, and if there is any American out there thinking that Hispanic people get paid more than they do for knowing two languages, it is not true. We just have a little more chance of getting a job. I have been criticized by Hispanics because my daughter’s does not speak Spanish. However, I really believe that learning a language is a choice too. There are from here and they have the freedom to choose what language they want to speak. Whatever they decide to do, I will be there to support then. I agree to support this new law and follow American rules. I doubt the government can approve, or at least follow trough with it. I refuse to speak Spanish and help anyone for free. I went to school and learned it and I expect people who come to the US to have the courage to go to school and do the same. When people move out of their countries they need to know that every country have their own rules and their own language. They need to be prepared to learn and go with the flow. I know it is very hard when you have a little accent and that some institutions treat you like you are an ignorant person. This is because all the experiences they had before with Hispanic people. They even try to get you an interpreter and the sad part is that I am an interpreter myself. I try to see the future with English only, and I really don’t see it. I do not think there is a point where they can start, because this country even offers the Naturalization test in Spanish. But if they choose a point to start at, I would not give any type of ID or Drivers license to people who can not complete the test in English. Let’s remember that the road signs haven’t been translated yet. Besides, if you are a tourist from another country, you either bring your book or hire an interpreter. In this way there will be more of a chance for income and job openings in the future. This will benefit the people who take their time to learn English or Spanish as a second language. Anyone who owns a big business loves the opportunity they have with the market when they advertise in Spanish. Most of the business owners are Americans, and I wonder if they ever stop and think of how uncomfortable their own people feel when they have to choose between Spanish or English on ATM machines. How aggravating can it be to press the wrong key and have to start all over again? Even for the ones that can speak both languages, sometimes the translation on the machine is ridiculous! Spanish is a language with many variations of slang and we do not need this confusion on our machines.
