    I am going to soon be employing some Spanish workers. They do not know much english and I know a small amount of Spanish. I would like to learn more but do not have the time to sit down and take a class. Anyone have any good books they have worked or audio they have listned too that actuall worked.

    This is the goddam problem with America. We hire people who cant speak our language, probably dont pay taxes, probably without health, life, accident, or auto insurance. And want AMERICANS to learn their language, so they can work for us!

    I wont even go into ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT DEBATE. But the next time your whining about your health care and insurance costs, think about the 12 million ILLEGALS who are jacking up your bill.

    Nuff Said!

    Most lawn employees will get a refund anyway. And most dont have health, life, or accident insurance citizen or not. The actual problem with america is that we have too many lazy people who wont work a job tht is too hard physically.

    Why not hire some high school or colllege kids? Oh I forgot no one wants to do this job so a illegal will do it.

    I agree.

    Make HIM learn YOUR language. Or do you want to coddle him, like everyone else seems to want to do?

    Don't speak English? Won't learn? Take a f-in hike...
