Bilingualism pays, if we"d open our ears. The United States should promote bilingualism in Arizona and other states in our country. English speaking Americans in the United States should learn the language of Spanish, and Spanish citizens isolated in the United States should learn the language of English. There are lots of reasons bilingualism should be promoted and be taken to action: The reason is that there are a lot of Hispanic people in Arizona, and the Hispanics are the fastest growing ethnic group in and the United States. In other words, we have the largest number of immigration compare to other countries. Another reason that bilingualism should be promoted is that business opportunities would expand and grow significantly. And the third reason that bilingualism should be promoted is because Hispanic citizens and the American citizens in the United States would learn how to communicate at a better level of understanding between the both languages by providing ESL programs in school. Which makes bilingualism a benefit in Arizona.
