Official English In The World
Research by ProEnglish has found that 54 countries around the world have English as an official language. Most of those countries are located in Africa, Asia, and the Caribbean.
The research shows that the U.S. is out of step with most English-speaking nations, and is one of the few countries that operate without an official language. Ten Latin American countries have Spanish as their official language.
Of the 54 countries that have made English their official language, 27 countries, or half, have made English their sole official language. Those countries are:
Antigua & Barbuda
St. Vincent Grenadines
St. Kitts & Nevis
Trinidad & Tobago
Perhaps the United States should also make English its official language.
