medicare info in spanish?

By the time you are 65 years old and Can't Speak English, we need to find out what high school they went to and Retract all retirement benefits from those English teachers who failed to teach this poor idiot....  I'm surprised you were only ask "English or Spanish" Language. Very large population of Polish speaking population in Chicago. They too, speak No English.....

Over 500 languages are spoken by the U.S. population. The most commonly used language is English (specifically, American English), which is the de facto national language of the United States. Since the 1965 Immigration Act, Spanish is the second most common language in the country.

U.S. Census Bureau released a set of new tables today detailing hundreds of languages that U.S. residents speak at home. American Community Survey data on languages spoken at home were previously available for only 39 languages. These tables, based on American Community Survey data collected from 2009 to 2013, expand the languages and language groups tabulated to 350.

These tables are among the most comprehensive data ever released from the Census Bureau on languages spoken less widely in the United States, such as Pennsylvania Dutch, Ukrainian, Turkish, Romanian, Amharic and many others. Also included are 150 different Native North American languages, collectively spoken by more than 350,000 people, including Yupik, Dakota, Apache, Keres and Cherokee.

“While most of the U.S. population speaks only English at home or a handful of other languages like Spanish or Vietnamese, the American Community Survey reveals the wide-ranging language diversity of the United States,” said Erik Vickstrom, a Census Bureau statistician. “For example, in the New York metro area alone, more than a third of the population speaks a language other than English at home, and close to 200 different languages are spoken. Knowing the number of languages and how many speak these languages in a particular area provides valuable information to policymakers, planners and researchers.”

The tables provide information on languages and language groups for counties and core-based statistical areas (metropolitan and micropolitan areas) with populations of 100,000 or more and 25,000 or more speakers of languages other than Spanish, as well as for the nation, states and Puerto Rico regardless of population size. These data show the number of speakers of each language and the number who speak English less than “very well” — a common measure of English proficiency.

Kids absolutely should be speaking English before being allowed in schools.

Not learning English in the USA is a certain path to poverty.

Except they have a 1000 different ways of scamming the government while they supposedly don't work, and live on the dole. A new scam I saw yesterday was pulled by Haitians. "Mama" comes to the US. She brings fake birth certificates for her "children", supposedly issued in French. She pays another Haitian already set up here, $5000.00 and he gets her "kids" brought over to the US. Those kids just happened to be in their 30s. Unfortunately the guy she paid couldn't help her because the birth certificates were such bad fakes, but he kept her money, and thank goodness those three didn't make it here.

What about Ebonics, Once a popular option by educators/school districts up north. Now there's some real genius thought process's at work.

Guaranteed !!!   No Speaka English...  Don't think there are many $100k job opportunities without English for starters... 

Worked with a Chinese educated engineer who worked/lived in US. His English sucked. When he saw that you were not understanding a Word he was saying, he would just laugh...and start over his conversation. (Several Times) Student & Work Visa was his pathway to "applying" for US citizenship.. The Legal Way...

Unfortunate for her, lucky for us. But for every one failure, to many more make it. Look at what the Chinese are doing with the "maternity hotels".
