English Plus

Look at this very cool article about language and identity (especially "What is Espagnol?") in the US written for today's OSU Daily Barometer by Majeed Badizadegan, a student in my WR 222 class. I'm so proud of him and his hard work. This relates to an article in our textbook Everything's An Argument, by Ariel Dorfman called "If Only We All Spoke Two Languages."

The joke I heard once goes like this:
What do you call someone who speaks two languages? Bilingual.
What do you call someone who speaks only one language? American.

You are what you speak.
