    US now has more Spanish speakers than Spain – only Mexico has more

    US now has more Spanish speakers than Spain

    The United States is now the world’s second largest Spanish-speaking country after Mexico, according to a new study published by the prestigious Instituto Cervantes.

    The report says there are 41 million native Spanish speakers in the US plus a further 11.6 million who are bilingual, mainly the children of Spanish-speaking immigrants. This puts the US ahead of Colombia (48 million) and Spain (46 million) and second only to Mexico (121 million).



    Wonderful news! This really is becoming a multicultural country like never before. Time to teach yourselves and your kids Spanish...

    FYI this study doesn't even include Puerto Rico... which is a US commonwealth.

    That should make doing business in Spain easier.

    And in other meaningless news, there are more English speaking 'Mericans than the entire population of England. Over 300 million English speakers in 'Merica vs a total English population of 53 million...

    Another way of looking at this is 'Merica has roughly 10% of the World's spanish speakers.

    ORRRR 'Merica has a population many times larger than most European 'mother' countries so this 'new' news isn't much but baiting the usual 'nativist' ranters....

    How is it baiting to report the news? It's a big deal that the United States has now passed Spain and Colombia to become the second largest spanish speaking nation on earth. It shows how we are changing as a country.

    In case you're forgetting, they speak Spanish in Latin America as well. So that's a lot of countries we are ahead of.

    Your reaction is puzzling.

    Sure... Spain, Chile, Argentina, Colombia, Peru, Mexico, you name it. There's a whole lot of cool places in the Americas to explore as well as Spain... Spanish is an incredibly useful language.

    It is race baiting by the way a few facts are drummed on and the usual suspects rising to titter about it... YOUR reaction isn't puzzling at all...

    We long passed England and yet no 'news' report about that.

    'Merica is the biggest to second biggest in so many categories, mainly due to our huge size- the number of Spanish speakers is still a minority compared to English speakers. Personally I don't see this as worthy of being noticed at all.

    'Merica has 10% of the world's spanish speakers, THAT is compared to over half the of the primary English speakers of the world being 'Mericans.

    Take a deep breath and realize the population of Spain and Columbia is a tiny fraction of the massive population of the good ol USofA so beating them isn't much more than a shrug to most of us...

    Good. Americans need to learn a second language and Spanish is a good choice for it.
