Speaking in Tongues – Extra Credit Assignment

The quotes below represent two different positions on the national language

debate. Use these as you reflect upon the questions you will answer for this

assignment.

“There is no country that has more linguistic assets. But we seem to take pride in

being monolingual and we even try to amend our constitutions to make sure that

we remain monolingual when the rest of the world under globalization is learning

second and third languages while we essentially shooting our own feet. It is a

national question. What does it mean to be an educated person in America today?”

– Dr. Ling-chi Wang (Scholar & Activist)

“U.S. businesses eagerly seek bilingual workers. The Department of Defense

spends millions to teach strategic languages. Yet voters have passed ‘English

Only’ laws in 31 states.”

“In this country, so much is offered to the children to speak other languages. We

don’t have to teach it in school. We really don’t. It’s taking away from their other

curriculum. In America we should speak English. This is America. I don’t think I

should be paying my taxes for someone else to learn a language.” – Kelly’s Great-

Aunt

Your answers to the questions should be approximately two pages typed, double-

spaced. Please provide specific examples from the film. This extra credit
