Speaking more than one language is a wonderful thing. It’s because it helps us express ourselves in a better way. While people all over the world speak different languages, English surely is a winner in the list of the most spoken languages worldwide.
Although speaking more languages feels good but sometimes, it can lead to occasional misunderstanding. This one man’s tweet sparked quite a discussion with some unexpected twists and a reminder that the USA actually has no official language.

A Twitter user was approached by a lady who told him to “speak English, we are in San Diego,” and so he asked how to actually say ‘San Diego’ in English
The post went viral with nearly 770k likes and exploded with comments regarding the short but powerful story told by @ArtyCurry
Not so much of a surprise, but there are many Spanish language speakers in the USA
The post comments had quite a few examples of similar situations that happened to people
This girl shared that she can’t wait for someone to challenge her with the language point
Many people who speak other than English as their native tongue tend to be bilingual, and so do their kids
English is just one of the languages in the USA, as there is no official language
So saying ‘it’s America, speak English’ is unjustified
Other users expressed that people should mind their own business
Since the viral post that started the discussion was set in San Diego and questioned the origins of the name, this user stepped right in
On a serious note, these people decided to explain the origins of ‘San Diego’
In some comments, pictures spoke for themselves
