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 52,6 million native #Spanishspeakers plus #bilinguals in the US. This puts the US ahead of Colombia (48 million) and Spain (46 million) and second only to Mexico (121 million). Besides, the US Census Office estimates that the US will have 138 million Spanish speakers by 2050, making it the biggest Spanish-speaking nation on Earth, with Spanish the mother tongue of almost a third of its citizens.

I don’t speak Spanish, but it looks like the right time to start learning it. For me, it is OK that there are a lot of legal #immigrants in the USA. Still, I’m quite concerned with the problems of #illegals. It is not only lost jobs for American citizens but also falling living standards and rising level of #poverty all over the USA.

What is your opinion?
