What’s that you say?

I love accents and dialects of the English Language. The different forms, expressions, and pronunciations are music to my ears. My wife and I collect our favorites and share them joyfully with each other. But there is a big problem when people born in this country are not taught to speak properly and even in some case criticized, at home, if they do. This should never happen. People are denied a good living because they can’t communicate properly in their native English Language and in some schools are put into classes to learn English as a second language, the English they have learned from home being insufficient to allow them to communicate with other natural citizens. Billions are spent doing the tasks parents should be doing. Why would parents want to set their children up to fail in their adult lives. There is no known physical reason why people from any given background can not learn and speak, more or less, correct English at home along with five other languages if you are so inclined. English is our trade language. It is the language all the world learns so they can communicate with us. What a shame that some of our own citizens choose to handicap their children by not giving them a chance to learn to speak more correctly.
