Came across this NY Times interactive map of the US which illustrates the amount of people in an area that are learning English. Not too many surprises, with California and border areas having the highest percentages of ELLs (English Language Learners). But, I was surprised that NY didn’t have higher numbers, and also at the high numbers in the Northwest and Alaska… what languages are people natively speaking there if not English?
