Although the majority of the population in cities like Miami currently speaks Spanish, the advantages of knowing English in Florida in 2023 are still as great as in any other U.S. state.
This is mainly due to the fact that employment options are at least doubled, which has an impact on people’s quality of life and on all social aspects.
According to data from Arizona State University, a quarter of Florida’s population constantly communicates in Spanish, leaving a huge margin for those fluent in English as a second language.
Advantages of knowing English in Florida in 2023
Below, we will detail in detail the main advantages of knowing English in Florida in 2023.
To pursue a university career
There are many technical and university careers that migrants can obtain homologation in the United States. For example, medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, pharmacy…
If they succeed, and master the English language, the economic growth they will experience will be strong and steady.
Access to better jobs
Of course, if for some reason it is not possible to work in what they trained for in their home countries, migrants who know English can still opt for the best job options available.
It is not the same to ask for a job in a restaurant, for example, being able to communicate with only a part of the clientele, as it is to communicate with the whole clientele by knowing English and Spanish.
Improved relations with the social environment
It is common for Latin Americans in Florida to remain within the community of their home countries.
But with the simple fact of knowing English, they will already have access to more varied experiences by being able to meet people from all the cultures that coexist in Florida.
Greater enjoyment of cities
People who live in Florida without knowing English miss out on most of the cultural experiences of the different cities.
By speaking English, they can keep up with what is going on around them, and find ever new activities for their entertainment and social, personal and intellectual development.
