Thanks for that link to Linguist Online, ehBeth. There are a few things in that article which, while not exactly untrue, are misleading. Here's some good news. In my contract work with the US State Dept., I have met hundreds of Latvians visiting the USA at US government invitation over the past dozen years. I always assumed they would all be fluent in Russian (which I am not) since it was the official language of record from 1945 to 1991. Lo and behold, the younger generation -- those in their 20s and 30s -- are frequently quite innocent of Russian and have English as a second language instead. Nearly everyone either knows some English, is learning English or, at least, acknowledges that it is THE language to learn.
