Economics and bilingualism in United States


Talking about United States economy is the synonym of thinking about a lot of aspects directly related with it.  Recession, employment, unemployment, skills, knowledge, age are some of them.  How can we improve our own situation considering the circumstances? One of the ways could be our language learning.


As we have said previously, the quantity of Spanish speakers has increased in United States.  It implies a growth in Spanish potential consumers or Spanish potential employments.  According to United States Census Office the companies leaded by Hispanic people grow three times more quickly than the national average, it means more money and more jobs.


If we have a degree but, as a plus, we can speak, read, write and understand any person in both English and Spanish it’s possible we can have an advantage in front of others.  It not only happens when you are looking for a new job, it occurs too whether you are thinking about how much you can charge for any service or function you provide.  Maybe, you can obtain a little more.


It not only passes with North American people, it can be similar with Hispanic people who talk English and Spanish, simultaneously.  It could represent a harder employment competition.  It demands better language knowledge.  Spanglish cannot help when you are searching a good labor chance.

Can you share us any of your experiences? Do you agree or disagree with this article? What else can you say about this?
