Language

Due to the great Caribbean and South American influences, especially in southern Florida, English is even considered a second language in large parts of Florida. This is also due to the large number of Spanish-language media. Many Florida residents speak a mixture of English and Spanish called 'Spanglish'. Spanish is particularly widely spoken in Tampa, Miami, and South Florida, where Haitian Creole is also found.

One in four Floridians, which is more than 5 million inhabitants, speaks a language other than English at home, and three quarters of them speak Spanish. About half of Spanish speakers admit to not having a good command of English ... because they simply don't need it.
