    #67 @Nicole Chardenet thanks for your information ! While English has been, and continues to be, a language of fundamental importance in terms of international communication, it is also true that in our constantly globalizing world Spanish has become an obligatory second language for anyone who wants to be “someone” in the international business sphere. Again, ones who can communicate in english and spanish have a great advantage!

    #65 Javier, I wrote a blog post about this about a month or so ago. It's about how many American online businesses think they don't need to translate into Spanish because they only sell within the US *(or maybe also to Canada. I've run across an American website or two that translates into French but not Spanish.) http://yappn2016.yappn.us/2016/08/29/pick-language-world-literally-next-door/

    More fun facts about Hispanophones in the US (courtesy of Pew Research):
    - 84% of Latino adults use the Internet
    - Immigrant Hispanics moving online has leaped from 51% in 2009 to 78% in 2015
    - Spanish-dominant Internet users have doubled to 74%
    - Half of American Latino users are immigrants and 32% are Spanish-dominant
    - America’s Hispanic population is one of the youngest – almost half are under 18

    The Spanish language is the second most spoken language in the United States of America. There are 45 million Hispanophones who speak Spanish as a first or second language in the United States, as well as six million Spanish language students, making the United States the third-largest Hispanophone country in the world after Mexico and Colombia. Spanish is the Romance language and the Indo-European language with the largest number of native speakers in the world. Roughly half of all American Spanish-speakers also speak English "very well" based on self-assessments in the U.S. Census.

    There are more Spanish-speakers in the United States than speakers of French, German, Italian, Hawaiian, and varieties of Chinese and Native American languages combined.

    The Spanish language has been present in what is now the United States since the 16th and 17th centuries, with the arrival of Spanish colonization in North America that would later become the states of Florida, Texas, Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, Utah, and California. The Spanish explorers explored areas of 42 future U.S. states leaving behind a varying range of Hispanic legacy in the North American continent. Additionally, western regions of the Louisiana Territory were under Spanish rule between 1763 and 1800, after the French and Indian War, further extending the Spanish influence throughout the modern-day United States of America.

    #61 I was one of the ... let´s call them optimistic people ... who started learning it. Problem was: Nobody else did. Then the teacher came with a book full of names and told us that Esperanto people visit each other worldwide. That was that... I don´t think it´s much easier to learn than Spanish. Maybe the grammar.

    English is definitely a messed up language, but one credit I give it is we don't apply he and she to inanimate objects. The word "the" is neutral. Regardless. I could go on, but I'm getting off topic.

    Yiddish is a kind of dead language now. But there are people trying to preserve it. In Israel in particular. The grandmothers, my grandmothers, spoke Yiddish, a very expressive language. It​ could be compared to Spanglish since it is an amalgam of Russian and Hebrew and German and Hebrew. Hebrew as a language was resurrected from the dead.

    That is correct. I was living in Korea Town, LA but it was a Hispanic neighborhood. I'm walking by a driveway (I always had search for parking) and these children were playing and one of them says, Perro. Dog. It illuminated me because I was trying to learn Spanish. The word just floated on the air and registered in my brain. That was the only word I caught.I can learn it if I want to but it will take me a while to understand it at speed. I told the lady, Norma, I told her "Any problems you come to me." Because I didn't want the big kid acting as a power broker. This was at the bakery. She would come and talk fast but somehow I managed to understand her because it was in context. Just like you can read a Spanish language​ newspaper and piece it together.

    #37 This is because Spanish is a latin language, like french, and there are a lot of english words that come from old french.

    #51 Dear @Javier beBee The reality of the United States is that nothing in its development actually made logical sense and there are plenty of more unpredictable shifts and changes to come, if the past is any predictor of the future. Whether it is the war for independence that need the French court to save it, the Louisiana purchase from Napoleon who needed money to fight the British, the British ransacking Washington DC in the War of 1812 after the US had failed in its invasion of Canada, or the mad costly division which was the American Civil War.

    Just one look at the linguistic map of South Western Europe https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Linguistic_map_Southwestern_Europe.gif tells us that one cannot predict the future. When you consider that when France, England and Spain were the three major powers, how America had the moxy to become America just underlines the absurdity of historical perspective. Language and nationhood is an evolutionary soup and this is exemplified by the extinction of languages and the changing shape of borders. http://www.linguisticsociety.org/content/what-endangered-language and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iha3OS8ShYs

    We either understand this or we do not need to - for we do not make these geopolitical shifts, evolution does and whoever is in the right place at the right time gets the bragging rights. What does it mean for beBee? Evolution my friend and only evolution - and if you or I have been granted the right place at the right time, our duty of care is simply not to lose this gift from evolution, or as Napoleon's brother said to Napoleon "Don't sell Louisiana to anyone my brother" - but Napoleon only pushed him into a bath tub of water. Evolution meant Napoleon squandered his gift, but Thomas Jefferson did not.

    #15 Creating a universal language had been an impossible task in the history of the human race. Different tribes populated areas in so many parts of Earth separated with thousands of miles from one another. With the limited resources for transportation they had it'd been very hard to communicate, a necessary condition for speaking a common language.

    In my travels I found many Latinos who were purposely not bringing their children up in a Spanish speaking household. What a shame, not to have a second language taught to you from the get go. With that kind of approach this will never happen by 2050. Those from other than English families are also doing the same thing. What percent of grandchildren speak their grandparents native language: Italian, Gaelic, German, French, Inuktitut, Hebrew, Russian, Spanish...?
