    My great-grandparents came here in 1901 from Europe. Between them they spoke six languages fluently. The only language they spoke publicly after arriving and allowed their eight children to learn was English.

    Interesting. My great grandfather refused to teach even individual foreign words to my grandfather or his siblings. He saw it as unAmerican to speak anything other than English and considered himself less of an American because of his Germanic accent.
