    I thought the Coca-Cola ad was wonderful. I have a college class of 37 students. Only 3 were born in America and have English as their native tongue. Who are my best students? The ones who are struggling to learn. Last semester the only student who received an 100 on my final exam barely knew an English word when the semester began. Lest we forget, very few people in this country do speak America’s native languages: Seminole, Cherokee, Choctaw, Ojibwe, etc. Rush Limbaugh’s immigrant ancestors probably spoke German and Allen West’s undoubtedly spoke an African language. My grandparents could not speak a word of English when they came to America, and I now teach English on the college level. Tolerance: the name is Coca-Cola!
