According to the U.S. Census, the number of people five and older who speak a language other than English at home has more than doubled in the last three decades, at a pace four times greater than the nation's population growth. In that time frame, the percentage of speakers of non-English languages grew by 140% while the nation's overall population grew by 34%. Spanish speakers accounted for the largest numeric increase — nationwide, there were 23.4 million more speakers in 2007 than in 1980 representing a 211% increase.
