All traffic signs are in English.  Most schools, businesses, local governments and agencies, newspapers and magazines use English.  If you do not learn English, you will always live on the edges of our society, limited to dealing with others who speak your language.  This site uses the Official Language of the United States, American English, and its rules of spelling and grammar.

When their planet's sun began growing hotter, most of the insect-like residents began taking steps to protect themselves from the rising temperature.  One group built a rocket ship and prepared to send the ship into space to find a new home just in case life became impossible on their own planet.  A large green caterpillar named Greeple was chosen to pilot the rocket.  The ideal planet that Greeple finally landed on was already occupied, so the caterpillar had to adjust his plans. ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________
