Hispanics are people who speak
Spanish or have Spanish-speaking ancestors. They come from many different
countries. Many are from Mexico and latin America. The United States
has more Hispanic immigrants than any other ethnic group.
Spanish is the third most used

more. Many Hispanics speak both English and Spanish. This is called
being bilingual. Many people study Spanish because they want to
communicate with more people.
Hispanics have a rich
history. Their culture and background are important. They keep many
of the traditions and holidays of their homelands.
