Should signs and other public services cater to different languages?

You're a very mature person, impersonating a slack jawed yokel in order to smear a view you don't agree with. Why do you have to be so insulting?

Also, to the OP
Yes, because speaking the language of the nation helps them assimilate.

I agree. Though I would be open to having more signs geared towards those who speak sign language and need Braille.

Otherwise, no. Most countries have signs in the country's lingua franca.. The US should be no different.

I don't mind signs having multiple languages on them. Especially in countries that have high amounts of immigration. Of course, you can't put every language on every sign or you won't be able to read any of them, so you'll have to be selective either way in what languages get put on what signs. Obviously, that would have to be done based on they most prominent languages in the individual areas.

It would be cool if they had signs with different languages here.

I'm fine with it. This made things so much easier when I was a tourist in a non English speaking country. I enjoy learning a bit of local lingua if I can but I'm realistic to know that I'm not there long enough to manage totally without English.
