Added line 1:
I enjoyed reading this passage. I guess never thought of this topic in global terms. I did not realize English was the primary language of computers and what happens when you are stuck in small town Texas! We did have Korean girls who became members of our church and they stayed in contact with their parents who still lived in Korea through the internet. Their parents did not speak any English (ironically their mother was an English teacher there) so they wrote e-mails back and forth in Korean. Their parents were upper middle class and had their own computer and internet access. The girls came to the states to live with an aunt because their family felt they could get a better education here. They were 16 when they moved here and the school district placed them in the 8th grade. They spoke very broken English. They were 20 years old when they graduated from high school with honors! They still communicate with their family and friends in Korean through Facebook now!
