I’m a native New Yorker whose parents emigrated from DR. I love mangu and I hate going Uptown or the Bronx, I prefer Queens all day. Tell people you’re Dominican and from NYC and they automatically think Dyckman and the Yankees. Nope, Yanks son mamaguevos. Shouts to Malecon.

Ninja,

Wassup with some of my students not being able to speak Spanish? They grew up in households with Spanish speaking parents and are now 14 years old and can't SPEAK the language

Multitude of reasons.

Parents didn’t enforce it enough to the point that either they didn’t learn it at all or they weren’t corrected enough as children so now they speak broken Spanish or Spanglish.

Kids could have grown up speaking it but once they entered the school system, they were forced to adapt to the predominant language from either the want/need to fit in or bullying.

And last but not least, low IQ’s prevented them from ever learning.

My Spanish isn’t perfect because I fall into the first category I listed in that I don’t think my mom corrected me enough as a child but I know enough to where I flourish on the bilingual tip. :pimp:

EDIT: Forgot to throw in kids who didn’t grow up as first-gen American Latinos. The language could have been lost to them before they ever got a chance to learn it. Previous generations could have immigrated during a more xenophobic time where you HAD to adapt due to racism and those people probably raised their children as “white-washed” so they didn’t endure what they did coming into this country.
