Below is an interesting video that my nephew, Chevaun, recently placed on YouTube. He spoke about immigrants needing to master the American accent in order to hold their jobs. Do you think that immigrants should have to go out of their way to sound “American” as a means of holding their jobs? What about the preservation of one’s culture? Do you think that immigrants should have to totally lose their accents once they decide to reside in America?
