To whom are you apologizing? By your definition, if a person speaks
more than one language they are an American. ;^)

Therefore, by transitivity, if the school(s) in debate are in the United
States and they cater to more than one language, then doing so must be
un-American (being that the definition of American is speaking just one
language).
