Habla español?

Perhaps you don't speak Spanish, but it's a good bet some of your neighbors or co-workers do.

A recent report from Experian Marketing Services rather casually mentions that, right now,  almost 25% of Americans 6-34 years old are Hispanic…and that percentage obviously is growing, because there are lots of Hispanic ladies in their prime childbearing years.

The Pew Research Center projects that Hispanic and other immigrants who arrived in the U.S. since 2005, and their children, will account for 82% of all American population growth through 2050.

Indeed, America is the melting pot.

Your children might be interested in learning Spanish.

Encourage them to do so.

And it's never too late to pick up some conversational skills in another language.

Try saying "hablo español" like you mean it.

  1. From what I hear on the street it would be nice to have people speak proper English rather than the garbage of grunts, groans and Ebonics before they try their hand on a foreign language
