If someone isn't interested in learning English, doesn't that mean they want absolutely nothing to do with English-speaking people?

    That's not really a logical conclusion.

    I have no interest in learning Greek, or Chinese, or Polish.

    I have great friends that are Greek, Chinese and Polish. Just because I don't want to learn their languages, it doesn't mean I want nothing to do with them. The same applies to English.

    Do you want nothing to do with the people whose languages you have no interest in learning?

    No, it means they prefer to use a better language

    No, that is a silly idea. I have no interest in learning Polish, but I know a couple of Polish people.

    Certainly not. Language preferences do not equate to a rejection of the corresponding nationalities.

    its a myth that most immigrants don't want to learn English

    the only exceptions are maybe disabled ot elderly people.

      I think you're right about many elderly people, but I can't think of a reason why a disabled person wouldn't want to learn English.
