Spanish could become Jamaica's second language

Saturday, November 07, 2009

Read about it here in English and here in Spanish. It's basically the same idea as that being officially promoted in Trinidad & Tobago right now, which is another English-speaking country surrounded by Spanish; they intend to make the country bilingual by 2020.

This map shows the location of both (Jamaica on the left, Trinidad & Tobago on the lower right).

This is yet another example proving false the notion that English is well on the way to becoming the world's second language; the fact that countries that already have English as an official language still feel the need to enact policies such as these shows that English alone just doesn't suffice.
