With the Vampire of Montana’s release around the corner, the author would like to take a moment to remind people that having a native language does not mean you are from the country of the language you speak.
Let’s use French as an example.
Those from French-speaking Quebec (Canada) speak, you guessed it, French! This does not make them French. They speak French, yes, but they are Canadians. Not French.
There are plenty of little girls and boys in the US who speak Spanish as their native language… and they have not been to any country other than the United States and are Americans.
Do not mistake language for origin. You can likely guess that a parent is from the country in question OR from a country speaking said language, but you cannot guess a person’s origin from their native language(s).
And yes, some children have multiple native languages. French and English are common dual native languages in Canada.
Please do not mistake a language spoken for someone’s nationality.
Please enjoy this picture of a rose. They’re blooming in our complex right now, and they’re very purty. I like them very much.
