    are they living there for good? if that's the case, yes.

    if they're tourists, there's no need for them to learn the language.

    i do mind when people of the same non-english origins speak their native tongue at work, that's kind of rude.

    if i tried that at work, cunts would think i'm plotting the next terrorist attack, this is melbourne, not india you rash cunts.

    ive never ran into someone who was hired to work with the public that cant speak english. Here they dont hire people who cant communicate. Its a prerequisite for those jobs.

    i just run into them on the street or something

    i can speak english, urdu, farsi, fluently. and a little bit of broken arabic, french and italian.

    i can understand arabic fully, though.

    that makes me tri-lingual if you don't count the broken languages.

    If I were to immigrate, i'd make damn sure to learn the majority language.

    They have no reason to accommodate me. It's their country. It's their culture.

    I was sitting in class once with two latinos. Mid-conversation they start speaking in spanish.

    I was like, 'can I be in on the secret?' They just sorta laughed it off and nothing else was said.

    Cocksuckers.

    Pretty much. Personally I'd make the effort to learn the native language but if some one didn't it's just another retard in a sea of retards.

    I actually go out of my way (translator app) to learn a bit of their language in a show of hospitality. Saying "I have sex with goats" in their language usually gets a smile.

    If you're going to live in another country you should make every effort to learn the language that you can. If that means you're just barely functional at your job, OK, while it would be better if you could speak more, it's not like I'm trying to start up a conversation with you anyway.
