I disagree with Malcolm Edwards (1/1, Letters, “Freedom of speech includes Spanish”) on his interpretation of freedom of speech.
I am a trilingual Hungarian, but I learned English for three reasons: It is the official language of the country; so I could teach at universities; and so I could communicate with anyone whose maternal language is different.
Would you call it freedom of speech if I were chosen labor secretary and I started speaking Hungarian?
Yes, you can speak any language on your paid TV channel, but there has to be respect for those who eventually will not be speaking Spanish.
