  1. I would also think India would be a large English speaking country, but I have to say Australia and Canada would have to be more English predominant than RP. Won’t be long though and if they don’t make English the official language of the U.S., we may become one of the larger Spanish speaking countries!

    1. I can just go by the stats. I’ve never been to India (probably never will) or Australia or Canada.
      But Spanish in the US, I’m afraid that may be coming unless something is done.

  2. You wrote “What is the world’s 3rd largest English-speaking nation, next to the USA and the UK? The Philippines.”

    What about Australia?

    1. I didn’t write it, I just found that trivia, but good question. I think I’ll check into that somehow.

    2. Okay I looked it up and came up with some interesting and varying things. I’ve chosen these 5 sites for reasons I will explain.

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_English-speaking_population (They list The Philippines way ahead of Australia, by population)
      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_where_English_is_an_official_language (Explains the first one, but also contradicts itself involving US)
      http://blog.marcosgazzana.com/?p=130 (This one has 2 lists. One for English speaking, the other for NATIVE English speaking)
      http://jepoygreen.wordpress.com/2011/07/02/largest-english-speaking-countries/ (probably better, more accurate lists similar to #3 above)
      http://www.ranker.com/list/countries-where-english-is-the-official-language/best-world-journeys (This one doesn’t even list the US, but can be explained by #2 link above).
      There I found something. Actually that may be something for me to do for these posts. I’ve got hundreds of trivia things about the Philippines. I can verify or disprove them by doing some research for each post. What do y’all think about that?
