 My daughter (12) and I were having a discussion about this yesterday.  Now that school is back in session we hear quite a few different languages spoken at pick up and drop off.  We were trying to count them all.

English, Spanish, Mandarin, Korean, Persian, Hebrew, Russian (I think it is Russian), and my daughter tells me there is another dialect of Chinese other than Mandarin spoken. 

We dont hear these every day.... but if you are around at pick up time you do hear them often.

 Here we only hear Spanish and English. If I go to get my eyebrows done, I hear Vietnamese.

I spend my summers at my beach house, in a resort town. It's the favorite place for French Canadians to vacation. The town is flooded with French Canadians and a lot of the shop owners are French Canadian.

I no longer have to get in either line for school but where I live it is so rich with different languages makes my head spin lol  anything in the Hispanic range I understand....there are Asians of a wide variety.....so i couldn't tell you what they are speaking lol

Todays diverse schools help the children grow bigger together sharing their culture....
