FUN FACTS

Multiculturalism is a situation in which all the different cultural or racial groups in a society have equal rights and opportunities, and none is ignored or regarded as unimportant.

English is not the official language of the United States. However, it’s the de facto national language. One out of five people living in the United States can speak a language other than English in the home. The top five languages spoken at home by people over the age of 5 are English, Spanish, Chinese, Tagalog, and Vietnamese.
