In the 1960s,many young Americans were dissatisfied with American society.They wanted to end the Vietnam War and to make all of the people in the U.S.equal.Some of them decided to “drop out” of American society and form their own societies.They formed utopian communities,which they called “communes”,where they could follow their philosophy of “do your own thing”.A group of artists founded a commune in southern Colorado called “Drop City”.Following the ideas of philosopher and architect Buckminster Fuller they built domeshaped houses from pieces of old cars.Other groups,such as author Ken Keseys Merry Pranksters,the followers of San Francisco poet Steve Gaskin,and a group that called itself the Hog Farm,lived in old school houses and traveled around the United States.The Hog Farm became famous when they helped organize the Woodstock Rock Festival in 1969.Steve Gaskins followers tried to settle down on a farm in Tennessee,but they had to leave when some members of the group were arrested for growing marijuana.
Not all communes believed in the philosophy of “do your own thing,”however.Twin Oaks,a commune founded in Virginia in the late 1960s,was based on the ideas of psychologist B.F.Skinner.The people who lived at Twin Oaks were carefully controlled by Skinners “conditioning” techniques to do things that were good for the community.In 1972,Italian architect Paolo Soleri began to build Arcosanti,a utopian city Arizsona where 2500 people will live closely together in one large building called an“archeology”.Soleri believes that people must live closely together so that they will all become one.

Actually,though,America,the “land of immigrants”,has always had people of many different nationalities and languages.The 1990 census (人口普查) indicates that almost 14% of Americans speak a nonEnglish language at home.Yet only 3% reported that they spoke English “not well” or “not at all”.That means that slightly more than one out of 10 Americans could be considered bilingual.
Besides that,many high school，college students，and even some elementary school students are required to take a foreign language as a part of their curriculum.In addition to old standbys(受人喜爱的语种) like Spanish,German and French,more and more students are opting for Eastern European and Asian languages.Of course,not all students keep up their foreign language abilities.As the old saying goes,“If you dont use it.” But still,a growing number of Americans are coming to appreciate the benefits of being multilingual.
Ethnic enclaves(少数民族聚居地),found particularly in major metropolitan centers,have preserved the language and culture of American immigrants.Some local residents can function quite well in their native language,without having to bother learning English.Regions such as southern Florida and the Southwest have numerous Spanishspeaking neighborhoods.In fact,Spanish speakers—numbering over 17 million—compose the largest nonEnglish linguistic group in America.But Chinese,Vietnamese,Italian,Polish and many other ethnic group add to the linguistic flavor of America.Foreign languages are so commonly used in some ethnic neighborhoods that visitors might think they are in another country!
Although some Americans welcome this linguistic and cultural diversity,others have begun to fear that the English language is being threatened.Since the 1980s,the “English Only” movement has sought to promote legislation which would establish English as the “official language” and restrict the use of nonEnglish language.However,some groups,including TESOL,the organization for Teachers of English to Speakers of Other language,object to such “language restrictionism”.Their view,known as “English Plus”,suggests that Americans should have respect for peoples native language and help them fit into the mainstream of society.But so far,19 states have passed English Only legislation,and the topic is the focus of an ongoing debate.
Whether or not English is the official language of the United States,it remains the “language of wider communication”.Nearly everyone recognizes the need to develop proficiency in English in order to do well in America.To help those who want to brush up on their English skills,English as a Second Language (ESL) classes around.Cities with large numbers of recent immigrants often set up bilingual education programs to teach students content subjects in their native language while they improve their English.Language educators often have strong and divergent views as to which approach helps learners achieve better results: a bilingual approach,an ESL approach or even a pure immersion (“sink or swim”) approach.However,all these teachers share a common commitment: to help students function well in English.
Americans recognize that English is the international language,and people with good English skills can get by in many international settings.On the other hand,in a world growing increasingly smaller,second language skills can be a great favor.They can build crosscultural bridges and give people an edge in a variety of career field.Indeed,lack of foreign language proficiency can limit ones chances for advancement and keep one in a cultural deadend street.As many people in America are discovering,being monolingual is no laughing matter.
