Speak English

May Li is from the Rakine State in the country of Myanmar. Her people are called Rohingya and are a Muslim minority in their country. They are not recognized by the Myanmar government and therefore do not have legal rights and protection. Rohingya is May Li’s first language, but she doesn’t read or write in that language. Nor does she know English. Her friend Jorge, who was born in the United States, takes it for granted that English is easy.
