What Countries Speak English?

How do you define an English speaking country? There are many ways to define an English speaking country. For example, I could have used a list of countries where English is an official language. However, such a list would exclude the United States – that doesn’t have an official language – and include countries where English has an official status but is not widely understood.

In the end, I chose to include the 17 countries where English is the primary language. In other words, the random generator should have all the countries where English is spoken as a mother tongue by over 50 percent of the population.

Such a list includes places like bilingual Canada where 56 % speak English as a mother tongue. However, the list doesn’t include South Africa (with its 11 official languages) or India. Here’s a full list of countries in this random English speaking country generator:

Creating this randomizer was interesting. It taught me a lot about different ways to define English speaking countries. In the end, I decided to use a quite strict definiton. If you worry about language barrier, remember that English is understood in most other countries as well.
