Since the United States will gain 80,000,000 new hispanics in the next 37 years, I calculated how many would speak Spanish. And I found a graph on what hispanic children were 1st generation, second generation, and third generation. And since 1/2 of second generation hispanics speak Spanish, and 1/3 of third generation ones do. And I figured that 43% of the second and third generation hispanics will speak Spanish. And in total, 34,400,000 new Spanish speakers will be added (they'll all be bilingual). So, in the future, instead of 75% of the hispanic population speaking Spanish, only 40% will. Seem about right?

You have way too much time on your hands, you should go out and get laid or at least drunk.

Your first number (80,000,000) sounds a little high. Where did you get your data from ?

The "kid" considered all Hispanic immigrants as female (by attributing birth rate data that is just for females), yet still able to get pregnant and bear children...

The current hispanic population is 51,000,000 and hispanics are expected to be 131,000,000 in 2050. 133 minus 51 is 82.

By all means learn Spanish either the Mexican or Peruvian varients , nearly half a billion people in the Americas speak it and there is a lot business to be done down there . Other choices would be Portugese with an emphasis on Brasilian idionomes or French for the Francophone market in Africa you are already good to go for The Commonwealth nations in Africa.
