Over 84,000 speak Lithuanian in England – census
Quote:More than 84,000 people speak the Lithuanian language in England, shows new data from the 2011 census.

Among other European languages except English, more people in England speak Polish (529,000), French (145,000), Portuguese (131,000), Spanish (118,000) and Italian (90,000).

After Polish, the second most popular non-European language spoken in England is the Punjabi language, which is used in India and Pakistan. It is spoken by 272,000 residents of England.

The German language is the first language for 75,000 inhabitants of England, followed by Russian (66,000), Slovak and Greek (49,000 each), Hungarian (43,000), Bulgarian (38,000), Latvian (31,000 and Czech (28,000).

According to the same census data published earlier this year, 95,730 Lithuanian-born persons lived in England in March of 2011, including 39,817 in the capital London.

I wonder how many of those portuguese speakers are from Portugal, knowing that many Brazilians use us as a gateway to the European golden states...

I think we are 45 000 — 60 000 overthere. Not sure.

75,000 Germans? That should suffice as a Trojan Horse! Bomben auf Engelland!


Not in haunts of marble chill,
Temples drear where ancients trod,—
Nay, in oaks on woody hill
Lives and moves the German God.

Not surprised about the Spanish. Today, whilst me and the boy were off hiking through the historical landscape of industrial Bristol, we must have heard nothing but bloody Spanish people chattering away.

What is it with you Spaniards and Bristol??

THere was probably only a dozen Spaniards in all of Bristol. They're just so LOUD! Big Grin

Anyway, why have the Lithuanian in the title of the article when there's HALF A MILLION POLAKS in the country!?!? Crazy! Probably nowhere NEAR as many Angles and Saxons turned Provincia Britanniae into England. Eek

"And now if a whole nation fell into that? In such a case, I answer, infallibly they will return out of it. For life is no cunningly-devised deception or self deception, it is a great truth that thou art alive, that thou hast desires, necessities: neither can these subsist and satisfy themselves on delusions, but on fact. To fact, depend on it, we shall come back: to such fact, blessed or cursed, as we have wisdom for."
