    It seems to be that people are more comfortable speaking their native language.
    But, I've always resented being left out of the conversation since I speak only English.
    In the past, I've argued that we all understand English, so why don't we all speak English, though I haven't found anyone who agrees with me.

    Don't be angry guys, but why the spanish speakers do not make the same question but on the contrary especially when is in our countries?

    No, my friend, j170 I do not mean that, I wonder is when pass the contrary case in a Spanish country with the people who speak english.

    I understand what you mean and your point of view because when that happens it is uncomfortable regardless of language.

    Now I feel bad because you felt offended by me icon_sad.gif

    You are mistaken, my friend. Several hundred indigenous languages that are all but extinct now were here first, and both Santa Fe and Jamestown were founded around the same time, so you could say Spanish and English arrived around the same time, too.

    As Bunjamon said spanish was already there. You don't have to switch if you don't want to, but don't complain.

    Given your writing skills, it's not surprising that they switch to their own language.

    Pregudist?
    Perhaps you should learn to speak English before you expect Spanish people to. At least they have the excuse that English isn't their first language but you on the other hand . .. I have no clue how to defend. Honestly I thought the title of your post was a joke. But judging form the fact that your profile says that you are "motorvated" (sheesh didn't realise there were cyborgs on here), I see you really don't know a damn thing about the English language you claim was "here first" which is stupid since English and Spanish are both derivatives of Latin (despite English also having a lot of sentence structure and even words from Germanic languages)

    Perhaps you should invest a third of the time you put into gym in some education BEFORE you start demanding the same of others

    I'm not sure how real the post is, but it is true that a lot of people think this way. It happens in every country, go to France and they get upset when people don't speak French.. Americans want everyone to speak English.. same with us Brits.. I don't really care what people speak but there are times when it can be a bit rude to exclude someone.. if there are 3 people together, and 2 start speaking in a foreign language in front of the other person (who can't understand) then that's not really polite.. I think it's acceptable only if it's because one of the two doesn't speak English well.. fortunately, I can speak a few languages so hopefully we can find one to communicate in.

    I tend to AGREE with this statement.

    After reading the story from the OP and then looking at his profile and ALL of his pictures, I think that sometimes "pretty" should just let it go.... Please use a "spell checker" when you are writing, otherwise you embarrass yourself.Your misspellings aren't even phonetic.

    BTW....congrats on your great body and QUITE the impressive "unit"! WOW!

    It's not prejudice, but it is exclusionary, and rude. The common polite rule of thumb is, speak the language all can understand.

    A question for the OP :
    Is your native language English ?
    I am asking that question , because of the way your form your phrases and your bad spelling of words , seem to indict English isn't your 1st language !

    To answer your question :

    Is it prejudicial ?
    no it isn't .

    Does it show politeness and good manner ?
    No it does not .

    Legally speaking, the law in several states has held that speaking a language other than English in the workplace can be discriminatory to co-workers, if not to customers as well. The common thread in these cases is how the language is perceived, and you appear to be perceiving it as at least dismissive, if not hostile, to you. Outside the workplace, people are free to speak whatever language they [damn well] please.
