English, Spanish or Both?


So Being Latino on facebook posed the question: What language is most comfortable for your parent/s to speak? Spanish or English? With me it's Spanish...24/7. There has never been a moment in my life where my parents out of nowhere decided to speak English. To be honest, they really can't. Although they can comprehend simple things, they need someone there to translate.

The funny part is that they've been here since 1980...yep for over 20 years and still haven't even wanted to learn. Why? My brother and me can't ask because that would be disrespectful. Why do you think? It can't be out of convenience because what if we both moved to far away countries. HHHMMMM?
