Life in America

The population of America is 311,000,000 and the US is also one of the most culturally diverse nations in the world.  There is an ethnic minority of 37% of the nation’s total population.

The US does not have an official language, but the majority of the population speaks English. The Spanish language is the second most common language.

There are approximately 337 different languages spoken meaning every language and culture in the world has some representation in America.

And you may have heard of living the ‘American Dream’.  As defined by James Truslow Adams in 1931, ‘life should be better and richer and fuller for everyone, with opportunity for each according to ability or achievement’
