That’s the number of languages that Americans speak at home, According to a new US Census Bureau report,
The report was drawn from data collected from 2009 to 2013 for American Community Survey.
The most language-diverse cities are New York, with 192 languages spoken at home; Los Angeles, with 185 languages spoken at home; and Washington, D.C., with 168 languages spoken at home.
Some of the less-spoken languages include Pennsylvania Dutch, Amharic, and Ukrainian.
More than 350,000 people speak 150 Native American languages, like Dakota, Apache, and Cherokee.
A census report released in October found that 21% of Americans speak a tongue other English as their main language at home.
All this is further evidence of America’s ongoing diversification — this past summer, for the first time ever, a majority of American children under 5 years old weren’t white.
