Bilingualism Across the U.S. Infographic

I thought this infographic on bilingualism in the United States was interesting. Bilinguals/multilinguals have skills that we should take advantage of, rather than mock; some of these people can be future language teachers or translators.

In ethnic and linguistic and terms, America has changed radically in the last few decades. Anyone who lives here knows it. But I was amazed that French made the list of one of the most-spoken-at home languages here. When I was growing up in the fifties and sixties, it was extremely rare for a non-native English speaking child to be in most schoolrooms across the country. Now it is becoming the norm. Great post.
