Houston Everyone's Mother Tongue Analysis

Satisfactory Essays
Houstons multicultural society opens doors to those of many different occupations. Therefore it is no surprise that Marjorie Agustin believes that, “[...] everyone's mother tongue [is] always associated with the memory of spaces inhabited in the past [...]”. Language along with other traditions are passed from generation to generation to keep their cultural and religious history intact. When out in the city of Houston it is not unusual to find people who speak their mother tongue. I agree with Agustin when she explains that many residents of the United States of America “[Look] with suspicion at those who came from the supposedly uncivilized regions of Latin America”. They find is offensive to not speak the official language which is English.
