U.S. is the Third Largest Spanish Speaking Country

Don’t be surprised if walking down the street someone says to you ¡Hola! or ¿Qué pasa? More and more Spanish is becoming a common language of use in the United States.  With over 40,000,000 Hispanics in the U.S. and many non-Hispanics taking Spanish as a second language in schools, it is no surprise that Spanish is after English the most spoken language in the United States.  In fact the United States ranks as the 3rd largest Spanish speaking country in the world!   Thus filling a need is http://www.vivaspanish.com and Gladys Benitez-Reilly.

Markets are expanding, cultural exchanges add to the richness of our lives, and bridges are being built to encourage harmony and progress.
By the way, the next time someone says ¿qué pasa? (What’s happening?), be adventurous and say, ¡nada, todo bien (everything’s great!). They’ll be impressed.

    Gracias para este articulo! I’m actually one of those non-Latino Anglos who’s been learning Spanish for many years, but you’re right– Spanish is increasingly a common language of everyday use in the United States.

    I live in Arizona, and no matter what city I’m traveling to do business in, I’ll often spend the entire day speaking and doing business in Spanish. And nobody raises an eyebrow about it. I’m glad to see marketers catching on to this– if you want to have success with a new or established business, you need skills in Spanish, so this process will only be extending itself further!

    Interesting to find out that now the USA is one of the most spanish speaking countries in the world. And to see people always trying to consider it a foreign language. When it is not. I live here in Denver Colorado and you can live here without using english ever well depends what part of the city you live in. So many local newspapers tv radio stations restraunts bussinesses churches nightclubs etc that are only conducted in spanish. I myself sometimes feel that I am forgetting english. I speak mostly spanish at work freinds and family. My current job I got hired for knowing espanol as my first language. So many people that have lived here for the past 10 years without learning a word in english becouse they do not need to.
