New Jersey Store Slammed Over Racist Sign Saying It Will Charge More If You Don’t Speak English

A local blade sharpening business in Clifton, New Jersey called Cutter’s Edge is facing intense backlash after the owner David Feinberg posted a sign by the front door that read:

“Speak English or Pay $10 Extra.”

As one passerby captured a picture of the racist sign and posted the now viral photo onto Twitter, other users were quick to express their outrage at the signage.

How do we feel about Cutter’s Edge (345 Lakeview Ave, Clifton NJ) posting this sign that says “Speak English or pay $10 extra?” pic.twitter.com/KYcQICwCzD

— Eric J (@ericjlazaro) September 5, 2020

Not to miss any details, netizens noticed more red flags in the other signs surrounding the entryway including a help wanted sign that read:

“Must speak English”

“On the books”

“Will train if nessary”

“13 or older”

“Girls ok”

People were taken aback, though unsurprised, that the owner added sexism on top of racism and a Trump support sticker in the window.

Are we not gonna talk about “girls ok” ???

— jewelya (@Jewelya1313) September 8, 2020

That help wanted sign is a joke. It’s illegible

i knew it pic.twitter.com/0XZ0Sso1VN

— loopsssx (@loopsssx) September 8, 2020

crazy how they put “must speak english” but always “will train if NESSARY” like who’s the one that needs help theyre english??

— n Ⓥ (@normalnohely) September 8, 2020

“13 or over. Girls ok”. Sounds like a Trump slogan.

— ESAnderson (@ESAnderson19) September 13, 2020

13 or over. Red flags are everywhere on this place

America was already home to hundred of Indigenous tribes with their own unique languages prior to any European discovery, none of which were English. There is no official language of the United States although some states, not including New Jersey, independently designated theirs as English and differing Native Languages of the respective areas.

Some Twitter users missed their history lessons.

i think it’s fine this is america our native language is english and people living here should learn to speak our language it also takes more time with a non english speaking customers and that takes away from other customers costing a small business owner money

— TOMMAS ETHRIDGE (@TOMMASETHRIDGE) September 11, 2020

ILLEGAL MEANS NOT LEGAL AND YOU DO NOT BELONG HERE! OTHERS HAVE COME TO THIS COUNTRY PROPERLY AND LEGALLY ! THE DACA SWAMP IS ABOUT TO BE DRAINED Y’ALL !

— Carol Slack (@cas3135) September 8, 2020

Other Twitter users found humor in a sign posted charging people for not speaking English where it was obvious the owner struggled with spelling and grammar themselves, even in an apology sign.

“… except out Hart Felt Sadness it may have caused.”

— Gina Vergel (@ginavergel7) September 10, 2020

Well, well… looks like the really got a good command of the English language themselves.

— Monisola Longe (@monisola_longe) September 14, 2020

I called and the owner spoke on the voicemail like he had marbles in his mouth. It is always projection with these people. They tell what their insecurities are if you like ‘em. #whitemalefragility

— Lauren_AJ (@LaurenAJ18) September 9, 2020

The public backlash was so intense that after a large influx of bad reviews Yelp has stopped the ability to review the business as they monitor the page.

Yelp users joined Twitter in disgust of the hateful sign.

@ David D./Yelp
@John A./Yelp

This is disgusting! They deserve a huge fine for this!

— LOL (@Nessaaaaaa_) September 8, 2020

shut them down

— lex (@lexreitz) September 9, 2020

Although the owner Feinburg expressed remorse when talking to USA Today, he only attempted to provide excuses for his intolerant behavior saying:

“I did it out of frustration. I had something to get off my chest.”

Racism in any form is unacceptable and although we enjoy the right to free speech in the United States, hate speech does not qualify under this protection.

How To Speak English Confidently

speak english with confidence

5 Tips for Speaking English with Confidence

At Lingoloop, we see students from all walks of life. Some are advanced students taking online English classes for their careers. Some are beginner students or casual learners wanting to improve their English online so they can speak better with loved ones. Regardless of their level, all students want to speak English with confidence. You may wonder “How can I speak English confidently?” or “How can I speak English fluently?”

Here are some simple steps that you can take to boost your confidence speaking English and increase your fluency.

speak english with confidence

1) Treat your brain like a muscle

There is an old saying in English: practice makes perfect. It’s a simple concept. If you want to get better at anything, you have to practice, and it is no different when you want to improve your confidence speaking English. 

When we say “treat your brain like a muscle” we mean create a consistent learning schedule as if you were going to exercise or workout. Plan to practice your English speaking once a day, or three times a week. Come up with a schedule that works for you. However, the key is consistency. Practicing a few times every week is better than doing it every day for a week and then stopping for 3 weeks.  Staying organized will help you develop good learning habits and allow you to improve.

2) Set goals for yourself

When we meet a Lingoloop student for the first time, we always ask them what their learning goals are. You may have a high-level goal like, “I want to improve my English so that I can find a new job,” or “I want to improve my English so I can speak better with my daughter’s teacher.” Having something to aim at, will give you direction and improve your motivation.

Also, setting achievable short-term goals are important too. Commit to small things that will help you achieve your main goal. For example, if your main goal is to prepare for a big presentation, you may set short-term goals such as: watching someone give a presentation in English, asking a question in English during a co-worker’s presentation or practicing your presentation in front of a friend.

3) Quit negative self talk

If you believe that you can’t improve your English speaking, you won’t improve. Resist the urge to keep telling yourself that you are no good. It is easier said than done, but it is critical that you don’t give up on your dream. 

Examine your negative thoughts and try to put them in perspective. As they say, “Rome wasn’t built in a day.” It will take some time to make a dramatic improvement in your confidence speaking English, so don’t set your expectations too high at the beginning. One benefit of setting achievable short-term goals is that you will feel good as you achieve them. Aim for progress, not perfection and you will be more successful in the long run.

4) It is ok to fail

The advancement of humanity has been based on a very simple method called “trial and error.” In a sense, learning is controlled failure. We must know what we are doing wrong so that we can improve upon our mistakes. So don’t be afraid to fail – it is an important part of the learning process. The key is to fail early and often while you are practicing. Make your mistakes in an online English class, so that when you are out in the real world you won’t fail as much. Over time, confidence will come as you anticipate your mistakes before they happen and learn to forgive yourself for making some small mistakes from time to time. 

speak english with confidence

5) Team up

There is something very powerful about learning with others. It is extremely motivating to be with other people who share your goals. It is the reason why people still workout in a gym. Yes, it is possible to workout alone, but there is something deep within us that makes us work just a little harder when we know others are watching. So learn with a friend, join a club or find a tutor to help you stay motivated. Learning with others will help you stay on track and make learning more fun. 

We hope you found those 5 tips helpful. Do you want to feel more confident speaking English? “Feel good speaking English” is our slogan! If you need help finding someone to learn with, come try a Lingoloop online English class. An expert tutor will assess your speaking level, and show you our unique teaching method. Before you know it you’ll be correcting yourself and speaking English with confidence! Sign up for a FREE TRIAL CLASS today.

Learn English with the News – Facebook Threatens to Stop Australians From Sharing News

Facebook has had its share of bad publicity in recent years, and once again they’re making headlines with recent comments directed at Australia and New Zealand. 

The news is a consistent source of entertainment, knowledge and discovery that never ceases to exist and always comes out with more and more material each day. Because it plays such a vital part in our lives and is so important to keep up with, it is without a doubt a piece of your everyday routine that can’t go ignored. 

Whether it is to understand the ramifications of recent legislation passed, to hear about recent events and grasp the potential consequences to your country, or simply hear about what is happening in other countries in order to compare them to what’s happening in yours, the news is certainly a staple in our lives and the most consistent way to get information.

This is why Scrambled Eggs has decided to unite two of your biggest worlds: learning English and keeping up with what is happening in the world. We hope our challenging daily exercises, composed of listening, vocabulary and comprehension exercises in English, will satisfy both of those above worlds in a satisfactory and also entertaining way.

    ENGAGE – BLOCK – BACKED – VIBRANCY – OFFSET – OUTCOME – LOOMING – DEFIES LOGIC – BARGAINING – THREATS

    • Facebook will block Australians from sharing news if a landmark plan to make digital platforms pay for news content becomes law, the digital giant has warned. Sharing personal content between family and friends will not be affected and neither will the sharing of news by Facebook users outside of Australia, the social network said. The mandatory news code has been (backed) by all the major news companies including News Corp Australia, Nine Entertainment and Guardian Australia, as a way to (offset) the damage caused by the loss of advertising revenue to Facebook and Google. “Assuming this draft code becomes law, we will reluctantly stop allowing publishers and people in Australia from sharing local and international news on Facebook and Instagram,” the managing director of Facebook Australia & New Zealand Will Easton said in a blog post on Tuesday. “This is not our first choice – it is our last. But it is the only way to protect against an (outcome) that (defies logic) and will hurt, not help, the long-term (vibrancy) of Australia’s news and media sector.” Treasurer Josh Frydenberg said the government would continue with the legislation and did not respond to “coercion or heavy-handed (threats)”. The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission chair Rod Sims said Facebook’s threat was ill-timed and misconceived. “The draft media (bargaining) code aims to ensure Australian news businesses, including independent, community and regional media, can get a seat at the table for fair negotiations with Facebook and Google,” Sims said. “Facebook already pays for some media content. The code aims to bring fairness and transparency to Facebook and Google’s relationships with Australian news media businesses”. “We note that according to the University of Canberra’s 2020 Digital News Report, 39% of Australians use Facebook for general news, and 49% use Facebook for news about COVID-19. “As the ACCC and the Government work to finalise the draft legislation, we hope all parties will (engage) in constructive discussions.” Tuesday’s statement marked the company’s first comment since Google also took an aggressive approach to the (looming) legislation, although the search giant has stopped short of saying it would (block) search functions in Australia.

Schools work hard to support children who speak English as additional language

About 50 per cent of students at St George’s Rd Primary School also fall into this category.

St George’s Rd principal Kerrianne Souter said remote learning had stripped teachers of many of the benefits of face-to-face learning for EAL students.

“Face-to-face teaching enables teaching staff to monitor more directly how students are managing their learning tasks,” Ms Souter said.

“It allows them to make on-the-spot adaptations to ensure learning is just right for students.

“Learning in an additional language requires a lot of concentration and effort until students have a good grasp of English.

“Lots of repetition, visual supports, longer application time, working in small support groups really benefits a student learning a new language.”

Children from new arrival families attend the Shepparton English Language Centre for 12 months before transitioning to mainstream schools.

Many parents learn English at the same time as their children, making it difficult for them to provide support throughout remote learning.

Wilmot Rd and St George’s Rd have family liaison officers and multicultural education aides, who have offered immense help to families during this time.

“We’ve been using them as much as possible,” Ms Souter said.

The St George’s Rd principal said throughout both remote learning periods, the school had been using a “wrap-around approach” with individualised support.

“We’ve endeavoured to provide work pitched at the right level for each student, and offered specialised support and literacy intervention where needed,” Ms Souter said.

“We’ve also made sure we’re delivering a holistic program, including art, performing arts, health and physical education and languages other than English.”

The school has also facilitated one-on-one and class check-ins with students, as well as providing technical support.

Wilmot Rd principal Sharon Thompson said the second round of remote learning had been less stressful, as every student now had a device and internet access.

“The first time, we didn’t have an online platform operating at the school,” she said.

“So we just spent our time ringing every single family in the school to check if they had a device and an internet connection, and to give them work packs.

“This time around has been easier.”

Ms Thompson said the school was doing all it could to equip parents to support their children at this time.

“They don’t have to be able to teach, that’s our role,” she said.

“All they need to do is help their children get online so they can hear their teachers’ instructions.

“And if parents have any questions at all, we’re just a phone call away to support them with whatever they need.”
