There's a little church and school outside Doss, Tx (north of Fredericksburg) that had its services in German until the late 1960s.
there is also a church down town that has mass in German.

Wasn't there a Quebec independence movement that wanted to break apart from the rest of Canada because they thought that they would be better off without the rest of Canada?


To learn Spanish,
do a search for "Pimsleur", that's the program that I used to learn chinese.

If you're looking for a classroom setting, as opposed to online, try NISD's community ed program. NEISD also has it, I'm sure.

Here's NISD's catalog for Spring, which has already started, but you can keep an eye out or sign up for their mailing list.

Go to pg 25 of the pdf.

Dunno why they voted but yeah there was one. I think around 1997 or so.

Yeah, there was a referendum on this on Oct. 30, 1995. It was defeated by a 50.6% to 49.4% margin.
