44.6% in California Don’t Speak English at Home

In California--which with a July 2016 population of 39,250,017 is the nation’s most populous state--44.6 percent of the people five years of age and older do not speak English at home, according to data released this week by the Census Bureau.

At the same time, according to the Census Bureau, 18.6 percent of California residents 5 and older do not speak English “very well.”

That ranks California No.1 among the states for the percentage of people in both of these categories.

Chris G P from England | England  Find all comments by Chris G P from England
I worked in Spain for 2 years and in Italy for just over a year, where I taught English.

In Italy, I attended both English and Italian speaking churches, in Spain, only a Spanish speaking church, where the pastor and most of the people could not speak English, though initially I was able to use my school French with the pastor, and there were visiting English missionaries from time to time.

I had to learn both Italian and Spanish quickly in the respective countries, (self taught), but was amazed to meet English expatriates in both countries, who could not speak a word of the respective languages, and had to rely on English speaking nationals whenever they went shopping, etc., to help them.

In Spain, particularly there are whole towns like Benidorm, where most of the people are English, and they have a kind of "Blackpool" in the sun, (Blackpool is a famous commercialised seaside resort in north west England).

People who emigrate to a country should learn the language of that country, and fast, and be prepared to mix with the people of that country, and learn how they live, and not just go in an expat culture. If they do the latter, they will lose out, big time!!

Many bible believing independent Baptists really do not understand the issue. Most churches and ministries only listen to what a Spanish speaking preacher says who is trying to promote their bible and the church says ok, because they put their confidence in who they are listening to because they don’t know Spanish.
Now there is a lot of information and articles about the Spanish bible issue.
Most information that other bible believers have studied and put out are true concerning history of the Spanish bible, Reina-Valera and comparison charts about other versions etc.
Right now the Independent Baptists are divided on which bible to use in Spanish.
Most use the 1960 revision and the others use the 1602,1865,1909,1960 and now Praise God the “RVG” REINA-VALERA GOMEZ. Note:
Reina Valera Gomez because
Dr Humberto Gomez is revising Reina Valera’s work to be in line with Authoized Bible &Textus Receptus, masoretic texts.

RVG” is by far the best Spanish bible out there.
I would also say it is the Word of God for the Spanish speaking people

Good point John who wants to look at an American movie and have to have subtitles?
Carlos Carrion Torres wrote:
English is without a doubt the actual universal language. It is the world's second largest native language, the official language in 70 countries, and English-speaking countries are responsible for about 40% of world's total GNP.

English can be at least understood almost everywhere among scholars and educated people, as it is the world media language, and the language of cinema, TV, pop music and the computer world. All over the planet people know many English words, their pronunciation and meaning.

The causes for this universality are very well known and understandable. English first began to spread during the 16th century with British Empire and was strongly reinforced in 20th by USA world domination in economic, political and military aspects and by the huge influence of American movies.

They're certainly putting their children at this advantage if they are proficient in English!

I don't have a problem with people who speak Spanish; I speak Spanish myself as a second language, carry and distribute Spanish tracts, witness to Spanish-speaking people as best I can in their own language, and give money to support missionaries to Spanish-speaking countries.

I apologize to anyone who was offended, but I don't apologize for wanting illegals deported and those who harbor them prosecuted.
"Under the Mexican law, illegal immigration is a felony, punishable by up to two years in prison. Immigrants who are deported and attempt to re-enter can be imprisoned for 10 years. Visa violators can be sentenced to six-year terms. Mexicans who help illegal immigrants are considered criminals.

The law also says Mexico can deport foreigners who are deemed detrimental to “economic or national interests,” violate Mexican law, are not “physically or mentally healthy” or lack the “necessary funds for their sustenance” and for their dependents.

“This sounds like the kind of law that a rational nation would have to protect itself against illegal immigrants"

¡"ilegal"!=illegal

Just a friendly reminder Tim.
Not all who come on this site are IDF KJV only, and speak only English.

I think you'll see my drift and how your comment came across.

Of all the many language groups that have come to the shores of America and learned English, I would think the Spanish speaking folks would be the ones offended, for they are told they cannot learn it. They are told everything will be labeled in both English and Spanish so they can understand, and not have to learn their new country's language. Talk about insulting.

Guess what, Pedro? They don't speak English at Walmart, either, where they use the EBT cards you and I pay for to buy their groceries. They don't speak English at the ER, where you and I wind up paying for their medical care. And they don't speak English at the polls, where they end up stealing elections from candidates whose voters are legally registered. When we "build that wall, we should build it around California also.

What seems crazy to me is that many who live in the states most of their lives, either don't speak any english, whatsoever, or so little that, well, why even bother trying.
I can understand it more in an inner city where they can assimilate, live, and work within their own culture, but around me where that can't be done, I have no idea how they've functioned without being able to communicate at all.
