Is the USA a latino country? When I visited literally half the people spoke spanish
>needed an information, so I ask to a worker
>she doesn't speaks english
My lucky is that I speak Spanish too,but seriously, wtf
>not that out of reality
yea it is, in certain neighborhoods you will hear spanish being spoken but most grandkids of mexicans/other latin americans dont speak spanish. of course there are exceptions like miami where over 50% speaks spanish but that's very rare.
op is full of shit
lol "most grandkids of mexicans other latin americans don't speak spanish" their abillity to speak properly english doesn't mean that they don't speak spanish
most south USA speaks spanish, it felt like mexico
we dont have an official language. in miami you can easily live your whole life without knowing a word of english. it's basically a cuban enclave.
It might as well be.
>texan but sheltered
>father fluent in spanish didn't teach me shit
>typical monolingual american
>learning very slowly as an adult
I wish every day my dad had taught me Spanish as a kid. I'll never be able to roll my Rs, but at least I'll be able to talk to the doctors when I hit the nursing home.
>in miami you can easily live your whole life without knowing a word of english.
>I just was astonished that she lives in US and don't know the official language
laughing out loud
To be honest with you though, USA has no official language. We use English by default, and Spanish is becoming our go-to second language for everything, and depending on what area of the U.S. you live in you will usually find some materials available in languages common in that area (I'm specifically thinking of Chinese). Also, in both private industry and in government, translation servies are common. So let's say the government sends you a letter-it will be in English and probably in Spanish, and on the top there will be a paper in several other languages expaining that you can call a phone number to request materials in Hmong, Vietnamese, Russian, Arabic, etc. Similarly at a private industry pharmacy you might find a brochure that gives you a similar service.
Where I live we have alot of materials that include Portuguese, actually, since my town has a Portuguese populaton and the old people tend not to speak much English. True to OP's observation I speak Spanish so we communicate in a Spanish-Portuguese-English mix, haha.
>Speaking Spanish is a bad thing
>You Americans should only be monolingual in English!
I was on a train in NYC, wanted to ask directions, went to some brown lady. Didn't fucking speak English. Clearly a Mexican, possibly even undocumented.
What the hell is wrong with you people.
> go to America in order to escape everyone speaking Mandarin.
>walk into airport
>everyone is speaking Spanish
