What is your mouth tongue?
We all speak English as our mouth tongue….but what is the next “tongue” in the state where you live…the second language if you will?
You might be surprised at the answers……
It’s probably not surprising that, once you take English out of the equation, Spanish is the most widely spoken language in the United States. But what if you also remove Spanish from the options? 24/7 Wall St. ventures into each state to see which other foreign language ranks highest, with German taking the top spot overall when all states are taken into account. Here, 10 states and their most prevalent foreign tongue:
- Alabama: Vietnamese
- Arizona: Navajo
- California: Tagalog
- Connecticut: Polish
- Florida: French Creole
- Idaho: Arabic
- Massachusetts: Portuguese
- Montana: German
- New York: Chinese
- Wisconsin: Hmong
Check out which foreign language dominates in your state here.
Idaho is surprising…….as well as Florida…..I figured my state would be Vietnamese since so many settled here in the late 70’s….but Tagalog for California took me by surprise.
Did you find any surprises?
