"I need to speak English because I have to help my family. Who's going to ask [questions of doctors, etc] if I don't do it?" said Victor Sanchez, reflected in chiropractor Ernest Tanner's mirror, as he translates to Jackie Tanner for his mother Maria. "Me and my brother and my little nephew -- my parents won't learn." Sanchez learned English not just from school classes, but also from typical Beardstown youth activities such as detasseling corn and going to McDonald's.
