Is there a high school in America that will give you a diploma if you don't speak English? Is there a college that will accept you if you don't speak English? Is there a job that requires a college degree but doesn't require that you speak English?
I can understand a Spanish only seminar on "please don't drive drunk" (that video will be uploaded later, seriously) or "please don't sell drugs" (also in the same video) but do we really need a class for High School graduates in a language other than English?
