Assignment: Hispanic American Diversity 2 Hispanic American Diversity Four Hispanic groups living in the United States of America consist of Mexican, Cuban, Puerto Rican, Central and Southern Americans. Even though all four of these Hispanic group are different, yet their backgrounds are very similar in comparison. All four Hispanic groups have found their way to the United States to provide a better future for their struggling families. When comparing the linguistics of the Hispanic groups, only two nationalities share a common; Spanish. Cubans particularly speak Spanish as their essential language, as stated by Schaefer (2006) Spanish is still the dominate language for 51% of Mexican Americans and 21% of Puerto Rican Americans. Even though Spanish is still the dominate language for these two nationalities, they also speak English resulting in Mexican Americans and Puerto Ricans being bilingual. Another language that is becoming acceptable among society is the blend of Spanish and English; Spanglish. Spanglish really depends on location of the speaker. If the speaker is closer to certain parts of the United States, they will hear more English than Spanish. Vice verse for Spanish, the closer the speaker is to Puerto Rica the more they will hear Spanish. As for the Southern and Central Americans, they do not speak Spanish or English. Southern and Central Americans have not been exposed to anything out of their villages, including different languages. Southern and Central Americans particularly speak the Mayan languages, being monolingual.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
