Excerpts from the Paper

The beginning:
Who Needs a Second Language?
The influx of immigrants from Latin America, Asia, and other non-English speaking countries is changing the face of America. By 2050, in fact, Americans of non-Hispanic origin are projected to decrease from the current 85 percent to 75 percent with Hispanics constituting the largest minority group (Gharib). These demographic changes, of course, will result in a greater prevalence of Spanish speaking people and people of other national origins in American schools, the workplace, the public square, and in government. So when it comes to addressing the question of who needs a second language, the answer becomes clear. Knowing a second language offers many rewards and benefits for any person.
