Just saw this in today's San Jose Mercury News: Majority of Santa Clara County families speak foreign language at home.
After decades of immigration from Asia and Latin America, Silicon Valley has hit a linguistic milestone that is rare in America: For the first time, a majority of Santa Clara County residents speak a language other than English at home.
In 2007, Santa Clara was one of just 10 counties in the United States where more than 50 percent of residents speak a foreign language at home, according to new U.S. Census Bureau data being released today.
It's one of many reasons I love living here.
Oh, and me? My household languages are English, German and Catinese.
