Hello, I am looking for someone to write an article on Bilingual Education in the US. It needs to be at least 1750 words. The problem faced by those who oppose bilingual education in the US is of a cultural sort. to state that children should only be taught English is to suggest that no respect is attached to their heritage, their native tongue, and in turn their own culture. This is not necessarily so. to prefer the teaching of English in school is not to state that a child should be brought up in a wholly English environment. It cannot be said with certainty that bringing a child up in an English only speaking school will stunt their native cultural influences. It could be argued that the child could receive ample teaching and immersion in their native language through extra-curricular activities, familial influences, and religious practice. Thus, the child is then able to receive ample influences from both sides of the coin. he is able to learn English to a proper degree whilst receiving his native influence from those around him. This would enable him to integrate into the American culture, whilst retaining the identity of his native culture and thus could benefit from both. It is to be remembered that to oppose bilingual teaching is not to shun the respect one has for immigrant culture altogether – it is more to recognize the importance of learning the culture of the country in which one lives, for the overall benefit of the individual. It appears as though the need to learn the English language as a part of integrating into American life has been overlooked and certainly underestimated. . This could have devastating future effects for the secularization of groups within the US.
