Obama:On English Only IN America

I- I don’t understand when people are going around worrying about: we need to have English only. They- they wanna pass a law: we want just… uh… we want English only. Now, I agree that immigrants should learn English. I agree with that. But, but understand this: instead of worrying about whether… uh… immigrants can learn English (they’ll learn English), you need to make sure your child can speak Spanish! You should be thinking about how can your child become bilingual. We should have every child speaking more than one language.

You know, it’s embarrassing, it’s embarrassing when- when… uh… Eu- when Europeans come over here. They all speak English, they speak French, they speak German… and then we go over to Europe and- and…u-u-o-oo, all we just can say is, “mercy beaucoup”. Right?
