Found primarily in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and Washington DC, German-speakers number 1,083,637, which is actually a 30 percent decrease in speakers since 1980.

That would be really cool. Also to have something besides Spanish as well, Thats about all the schools teach around here.

The 905,843 Russian-speakers in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and San Francisco, among other cities, have increased by 391 percent since 1980.

Representing the largest decline on this list, Italian claims only 723,632 speakers half as many as in 1980. Italian can still be heard in places like New York, Boston, Chicago and Philadelphia.

OOOOOOOOHHHHHH! That makes a lot more sense.

@ALSINTL: A new study indicates eye movement can reveal the proficiency of people reading English as a second language:

The Arabic-speaking population in the US is larger than most people likely realize especially in Dearborn, Michigan. As of 2011, the census recorded 951,699 native Arabic speakers. In 1980, there were only 251,409 Arabic speakers on record.

This top 10 list features the most popular languages in the US outside of English. English is the most common language spoken in the US.

Navajo is the most spoken Native American Language and has less than 200,000 speakers. Navajo probably wouldnt make the top 25. It really is sad.

they are not speaking about america only, they are speaking about the world, there are many Spanish speaking continents in the world, many Americans speak Spanish as well as English too, so makes sense Chinese was even being taught in my daughters school from k-5th

Americas main language is english. Im pretty sure these are the most common second languages or languages other than english

Just about 2,882,497 people speak a Chinese dialect such as Mandarin or Cantonese, an increase of 290 percent! Youre most likely to find Chinese dialect-speakers in New York, Los Angeles or San Francisco.

With an increase of 510 percent since 1980, Vietnamese is the language with the biggest change. There are 1,419,539 speakers found in Los Angeles, San Jose, Houston and Dallas, among other cities.

I think you should learn Spanish. Mandarin Chinese takes a very long time to learn and you should not learn it just because it has many speakers. Chinese dialects are native to only a select few countries.

Hi Noah, this top 10 list features the most popular languages in the US outside of English.

French should be the third most spoken language, as french-creole was not added in this list. The 2011 census bureau study shows 1,301,443 french speakers and another 753,990 under french-creole, totaling just over 2,000,000 speakers.

The number of people in the US who speak a language other than English has more than doubled since 1980. Thats hardly surprising, given the ever-expandingdiversity of language in the United Statesand the increasing trend toward bilingual households, but a few of the most common non-English languages spoken might surprise you.

This language from the Philippines boasts 1,594,413 speakers in the US slightly more than tripling its numbers in the last three decades, and recently surpassing French and Vietnamese on this list. Speakers of Tagalog are concentrated mainly in Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York and San Diego.

I was wondering the same! ASL is pushing out German, Chinese and Latin in LOTE programs all over the US.

But it all depends on what you want to do.

You forget that it says that these numbers come from the locations listed on under the languages, there are only like 4 cities at the most.

Speakers of Korean, located mainly in Los Angeles, New York, Washington DC and Chicago, have quadrupled over the last thirty years they now number 1,141,277.

I would like to see all elementary and secondary schools giving language credits to the students so they could study a foreign language at an accredited language school much like non English speakers get in ESL classes. They could go after school or on weekends. This would allow them to learn a wider variety of languages which the local school district cannot offer. The child can begin at a younger age and continue to advance for many years as they do in many other countries which offer 10 or 11 years of a language.
