  1. Don Miller's Avatar
    Re.the article on the ELL total immersion English language program in Tucson...I cannot understand nor can I believe the statement that it "takes up to eight years" to become proficient in a foreign language. This is patently baloney or else thoise kids are truly as dumb as they are popularly portrayed. The US military and the Department of State regularly turn out personnel fluent enough in a wide variety of foreign languages to function effectively in foreign environments. I spent six months in Spanish immersion at the Defense Language Insdtitute and went immediately to assignment in Latin America where I had no trouble understanding and expressing myself. Much later (and older) I went to a Greek immersion course for eight months, went directly to Greece, where I was again able to function very effectively. Admittedly Spanish is a much easier language than English, but Greek is much more difficult, yet all of us in the two groups were able to become reasonably fluent in far less than eight years. And we were all adults, well past the optimum language-learning ages, so what's up with those Mexican kids?
  2. Roger Algase's Avatar
    Don Miller, I'll tell you what's up with those Mexican kids. They are biologically inferior to white children, at least according to the bigots who are hijacking Americas's immigration policy, just as black children were once considered to be biologically inferior to white children by bigots of earlier generations.

    Isn't that what you are trying to say? I am not very good at languages myself (except for some basic French, Spanish and Japanese), so perhaps you can tell us: what are the Spanish and Greek words for "racist"?
  3. Don Miller's Avatar
    You, Algase, are a prime example of the impossibility of any rational discussion with a leftist! I'll tell you what the definition of "racist" is in English: a racist is anyone who is winning an argument with a liberal!
    The appropriate response would have been some sort of comment on the quality of the instruction, the beaureaucratic inflation in the schools, PC, or something other than the usual leftist ad hominem snarl. On the chance that you have not yet completed your eight years of English immersion, I will repeat my point, slowly and as simply as possible: it is not credible to me, based on my own knowledge and experience, that it should take eight years to make young children competent in a foreign language. Again, Algase, now watch my lips, the Army and the State Department, among others. manage to accomplish this task with much older students in far less time. Now do you understand my point? Good God!

    For your edification..."racism" in Spanish is "racismo" (which, given your proclivities, I'm surprised you don't already know), and while Greek doesn't really have the concept, they not being known for their political correctness, they will use the word "filetismos" which leans more to "tribalism".

    And, to add to your irritation, I do not want or welcome all those Mexican kids in our schools. We have neither the talent nor the money throughout the country to correct the many problems we have educating our own kids, and maybe even you will agree, Algase, that the state of public education in the US is abysmal and embarrassing, not to mention permanently damaging to the kids and the country itself. Is this really the time to undertake the additional burden of attempting to educate swarming hordes of 3d World children whose parents dump them here? I understand perfectly that you and others like you are far more concerned with the care and welfare of Mexicans than of Americans, but that still does not change the economic reality of simply not enough money to take care of the whole world's unfortunates.
  4. Roger Algase's Avatar
    Don Miller, you refer to Mexican children in American schools (many of whom are also American children under our Constitution, having been born here) as "swarming hordes of 3rd world children". I have no idea if this statement fits within the Greek notion of "tribalism", but there is no question that it falls within the definition of "racismo" - in any language.

    As it happens, I spent a year going to school in Tucson myself as a very young child, some seven decades ago. I am not of Hispanic origin (unless being a Sephardic Jew counts) and I was not fortunate enough to have been in a Spanish language immersion program (and I have no idea if there was any such thing at the time), but if I had been, I would have benefited greatly from the opportunity, I am quite sure.

    America is becoming a multilingual, multicultural nation, Don, like the world we are part of. This is as good a time as any to get used to it. Why not give tolerance and respect for other human beings, regardless of race, language or origin, a try? Buena suerte!

    My father had his name legally changed from,
    BELA VOJTECH HUSTOPECKY to ALBERT HUST. Is there a legal document in some archive I could find? I was born in US in 1925 and my birth certificate listed me - ALICE ANNA HUSTOPECKY.
    My father arrived in USA on January 5, 1922 from Czechoslovakia. He later lived in Cleveland, Cuyahoga Co., Ohio.

    Many thanks for your help.
