Research by ProEnglish has found that 65 countries and territories 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.
Of the 65 countries and territories that have made English their official language, 35 countries have made English their sole official language.

Perhaps the United States should also make English its official language.
