This is what the non-English speaking United States looks like.

On Tuesday, the United States Census Bureau released an interactive map that allows the user to identify and navigate areas where large segments of the population speak a language other than English. At 37.6 million speakers, Spanish easily wins as the second-most spoken language in the nation.

Chinese (Census says ‘Chinese?!’) came in as the third-most spoken, with a total of 2.9 million speakers.

The map itself only displays 15 languages, but the accompanying report from the American Community Survey titled 'Language Use in the United States' says that the bureau currently keeps tabs on 381 languages that are spoken in the United States.

The report also states that while 58 percent of residents age 5 and older who speak a language other than English at home also speak English “very well,” the total number who speak English “less than very well” is at a steady 8.7 percent.

Total residents who speak a language other than English at home grew from 19.7 percent in 2007 to 20.8 percent in 2011, when the American Community Survey study was conducted.
