Should English be the official language of the United States?
 
01:55
Unbeknownst to many, English is not the official language of the United States. However, if some politicians on Capitol Hill have their way, that would change. Meanwhile, in the border town of San Luis, Arizona, Alejandrina Cabrera, a U.S. citizen raised in Mexico, was disqualified to run for city council because of her low English proficiency. Cabrera says her English is sufficient for a town in which Spanish is spoken as often as English. The measure, introduced in 2009 by Republican Congressman Steve King, would make it harder for people like Cabrera to serve in public office.

Trump on the English language in America
 
00:40
At a Press Conference on Wednesday, September 2nd, Presidential candidate Donald Trump spoke about the role of English in America: "I think that when you get right down to it, we’re a nation that speaks English. And I think that while we’re in this nation we should be speaking English. And that’s how assimilation takes [place]. And that’s how, whether people like it or not, that’s how we assimilate. And that’s how we go on to that next phase and that next stage. And that’s how people who don’t speak English—and I’m not just talking about Spanish, I’m talking about [people] from various parts of the world—that’s how they will become successful and do great. And so I think it’s more appropriate to be speaking English."

List of countries where English is an official language
 
01:07
The following is a list of sovereign states and non-sovereign entities where English is an official language, i.e., the language of government. In 2012, there were 60 sovereign states and 28 non-sovereign entities where English was an official language. The majority of countries where English is an official language are former territories of the British Empire. Notable exceptions include Rwanda, which was a former Belgian colony, and Eritrea, which was an Italian colony where the British Empire spanned its control only in World War II and shortly after (1941-1952). English is the sole official language of the Commonwealth of Nations. English is one of the official languages of the United Nations, the European Union and the International Olympic Committee. Although English is not an official language in the United States many states and regions within the U.S. do have English as an official language.

No Official Language?!
 
01:53
To celebrate International Mother Language Day, we made a video that envisions an America where people do not speak a common language and the complications that ensues. Just within the embassy in Oslo, twenty-four different languages are spoken (and this is not counting our IT person who insists he speaks Klingon.) The languages range from Icelandic to Farsi, from Tagalog to Cap Verdean, and illustrate the diversity of the Embassy, the United States and Norway.

Languages of the United States
 
50:13
Many languages are used, or historically have been used in the United States. The most commonly used language is English. There are also many languages indigenous to North America or to U.S. states or holdings in the Pacific region. Languages brought to the country by colonists or immigrants from Europe, Asia, or other parts of the world make up a large portion of the languages currently used; several languages, including creoles and sign languages, have also developed in the United States. Approximately 337 languages are spoken or signed by the population, of which 176 are indigenous to the area. Fifty-two languages formerly spoken in the country's territory are now extinct. The most common language in the United States is known as American English. English is the de facto national language of the United States, with 80% of the population claiming it as a mother tongue, and some 95% claiming to speak it "well" or "very well". However, no official language exists at the federal level. There have been several proposals to make English the national language in amendments to immigration reform bills, but none of these bills has become law with the amendment intact. The situation is quite varied at the state and territorial levels, with some states mirroring the federal policy of adopting no official language in a de jure capacity, others adopting English alone, others officially adopting English as well as local languages, and still others adopting a policy of de facto bilingualism.

English to become the official language of North America?
 
01:48
http://londontranslations.co.uk Is English really the spoken language of North America? A recent report suggests that the US government is introducing legislation to ensure that English becomes the de facto language of North America. We take a look at the impact this proposal could have on immigrants to the USA. In an effort to encourage a broader English speaking population, the US government is proposing an act that would, "preserve and enhance the role of English as the official language of the Federal Government", even though the country has significant ethnic groups from South America and South East Asia whose mother tongue is not English. The overall aim of this proposal is to both aid assimilation amongst legal immigrants and to develop a sense of commonality amongst the population. It is likely that this act will also result in the introduction of an English test for anyone applying for US citizenship. A spokesperson for London Translations recently said, "We believe that language is a deeper part of peoples' cultural identity than is often recognised and do not support this proposal -- indeed we feel it would be damaging. One of the contributing factors to the UK's dynamism and success is our openness and diversity which embraces languages and cultures from all over the world, the same applies to the USA." We'd love to hear your thoughts on the matter. Please leave your interesting views and questions in the comments section below.

English as The National Language
 
05:16
Does the United States have an official language? Should English be the National Language by Law? Is that even possible? This hot-button issue comes up with nearly every new Congress, and is likely to continue to be a hotly debated issue for a while. But given the common and frequent use of Latin in our law and government from its very inception could it really have ever been the intent of the Founders of the country to have one National Language? With the Louisiana Purchase the country inherited vast numbers of French speakers with open arms, and again after the Mexican-American war the country gained tens of thousands of native Spanish speakers as American citizens. Should English be the Official Language of Government? That may not even be possible.

Why we must make ENGLISH our official language!
 
00:37
Oregon Firefighter Supervisors laid off because they can't speak Spanish! English is the language of American success and provides the basis for American cultural unity. As a part of any comprehensive immigration reform, we should renew our commitment to our cultural values by teaching LEGAL immigrants to speak and read the English language, educating them about U.S. citizenship based upon U.S. history and giving them an understanding of the Founding Fathers and the core values of American civilization. We should continue to encourage those who want to become U.S. citizens, but it is important that we grant citizenship to only those individuals who also want to embrace and assimilate into the culture of the United States. We must preserve America's unique civilization. To do this we will insist on respecting the rule of law, meaning 100 percent control of the border and the punishment of employers hiring people here illegally. We will also renew our commitment to AMERICAN values, language and history as the prerequisite for American citizenship... We should not worry about people who want to come to the United States to work hard, pay taxes, obey the law, and become Americans. In fact, we should be delighted to have new Americans join our country because historically they have been the source of enormous talent, energy, and courage. From Alexander Hamilton to Andrew Carnegie to Albert Einstein to Henry Kissinger to Arnold Schwarzenegger, people who wanted to improve their lives, and in the process improve the country, have enriched America. Nor should we be concerned that a substantial number of new Americans are Hispanic. America has a long history of absorbing and blending people of many languages and backgrounds. There have always been non-English newspapers in America and now we have non-English radio and television. I am also not worried that some immigrants come here only to earn money and then go home (Italian immigrants, in particular, did that in the past). What should worry us is the breakdown of will on the part of America to control the borders and to ensure that new immigrants learn to be American. What should worry us is a breakdown of will to protect America's unique civilization! Thank you to Newt Gingrich for the above. It's time to wake up AMERICA!

Why the US national anthem is terrible — and perfect
 
09:25
Vox's Estelle Caswell and Joss Fong debate "The Star Spangled Banner" Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO When Francis Scott Key attached his poem about the War of 1812 to a popular British song called "To Anacreon in Heaven," he kicked off over 200 years of painfully bad singing by patriotic Americans. The Star Spangled Banner became the official national anthem of the United States in 1931, but it had been used by the Army and Navy for decades before that and was popular from the start. One big problem? The melody wasn't exactly written for the masses, but for trained soloists. Commentators pointed out early on that it was exceedingly difficult for most people to sing, suggesting that "America the Beautiful" might be a better alternative. Critics have noted that the music requires a uniquely wide vocal range, it's full of tricky intervals, and the lyrics are confusing and uninspiring. But if you look at the national anthem as a sport, where we get to watch performers at the top of their game tackle the gauntlet that is the Star Spangled Banner, you may come to appreciate it. In this video, we debate whether the difficulty of the Star Spangled Banner is a feature or a bug for a national anthem.
