Latinos Trending Toward English

July 29, 2013
Plain English Version

The longer you stay in the United States, the more American you become. A new study showed Latinos– those who came as immigrants and those who were born here – becoming more comfortable.

The subject of the study was the use of English language. Four out of five Latino adults said at least some of the news they followed was in English. One out of three Hispanics get all their news in English. These numbers are up since 2006.

The number who get their news just from Spanish language sources is going down.

The number of new arrivals to the U.S. is going down. More Latinos are born and raised in this country. More than half of the adult Latino population speaks English very well.

Experts say, eventually most Latinos will be born in the United States.

Similar to the rest of the country, more Latinos are getting their news over the Internet. Slightly fewer are watching television, and even fewer are reading newspapers and magazines.

With all these changes, Latinos are facing the same challenges as those who came before them, how to maintain ties with the culture while adapting to the ways of the new world.
