This is very interesting. I moved to Queens from the Bronx, where the majority of people speak mostly Spanish as the second most common language, and now that I live in Queens I notice the language diversity when walking down the street, I hear Russian, Japanese, Spanish, and then we get to a store where we’re greeted in English and everyone says “Hello!”. It’s amazing and honestly I wish the rest of the country could experience this aspect of NYC, maybe things wouldn’t be such a mess right now.
My name is Maryam Maryam. I am currently enrolled in the math 1275 class with professor Benakli. Reading the discription and then the article itself, I was fascinated. I love learing about new cultures and I believe that languge is an impoortant part of a culture. I am glad to be a part of the place(New York) which is so diversed. I didnt know about this diversty of languges at all, and to knbow about it now, I feel that I have some treasouress informtaion. Thank you so much for putting out this article for all of us to read. it was worth the time, and have some really cool information that is fascinating.
Yeah, it’s interesting how many languages you can hear throughout the city, especially in Queens. I’ve had friends back in high school fluent in Cantonese and English, come from a pair of Spanish speaking parents also good at English, and overhear conversation in Japanese and occasionally Russian on the train ride to and from school. The area where I live in Astoria has Italian and Greek infleuence in one area, and Egyptian and Middle Eastern cultural hotspots in another, so it’s especially diverse.
Also, this is technically my first post on here, I’m Mario N. Lopez from Professor Benakli’s Intermediate Algebra/Trigonometry class. Pleased to meet you all and I hope to remember to read/post more in the future.
