Hi, My parents speak Spanish and I speak Spanish but my nephews don't and won't. I have two nieces who do and will but they live in a town where most people speak Spanish. Where my nephews live, most people speak English. Spanish-speakers in the US are, by in large, passing down their language to the next generation in many cases but in many families, it's disappearing. I have mant Hispanic friends who speak very little Spanish and some who speak none. In a sense, it's a shame they will never speak the language of the forefathers but in another sense, they are assimilating to the culture of their country and are 'fitting in.' Have you witnessed language loss? Do you not speak the language of your parents or do you know anybody who's in the situation my nephews are in? Do you live in region where another language was traditionally spoken but is now being replaced by a national language?
