Argument Response Against Dual Language Education

In slope First the author is a huge proponent of English unless education. Le urges the voting domain who is reading the article to vote against installing bilingual education into the school-age child course curriculum. Le dedicates almost the entire piece to focus on the potential pitfalls in trying to introduce two completely distinguishable wrangles into a childs academic curriculum simultaneously. Before I read this article I would have thought myself in prefer of bilingual education. It would appear to be the easiest way to assimilate immigrants to our cultural as well as broadening the cultural horizons of our native English mouth students.I have no idea how arrogant a way of idea that could possibly be. My own education, coupled with my professional and personal experience, in assenttance to Les essay lead me to the conclusion that English only education is by far the bets way to go. I would like to speculate I have a genuinely good grasp of the English language I am constantly being commended on my fantabulous verbal communication skills. That being said my written communication leaves a lot to be desired. Even though I speak very eloquently (at times) I am non seem to properly picture that same level of eloquent into a printable media.I find myself a little bit embarrassed when I have to write courtly documents (even this response) due to my lack of practical skill knowledge when it comes to written formats. I blame myself partially for the oversight in my education and in the main I blame my compulsory education instructors. Through out cross school, middle school and high school I was never erst ordered to learn how to write a proper sentence. I was make to learn vocabulary and parts of speech surely but it was not until college I was it expected that I know how to put it all in concert flawlessly and with punctuation.All my writing assignments earlier I entered college consisted of a series of tend on sentences. The sad part is I never got below C+ in any of my written assignments due to my extraordinary level of content. However, I know now that content does not a good reputation solely make. My teachers did not do me any favors by allowing me to skate by, in particular since I had no idea that I was skating to begin with. afterwards I read Les article I stop to think about the people I interact with on a daily basis, the public at large and especially my colleagues.I must admit on several occasions I find myself mortified to witness the language that comes out of their mouths. Not because of any level of vulgarity but rather the way in which they completely butcher their native language English. I think the author makes a valid point before we become so consumed with the idea of teaching American children other languages we unfeignedly should focus on them mastering English in both verbal and written formats.
