Default Great resource for Hispanic info

I just found a great spot to get information about Hispanic population: hispanictips.com You can get lots of information about areas and I'll bet it would help you see what kind of population there is for your family.

Buena suerte!

I remodel homes and work closely with an owner-run painting contractor. He and his family are from Venezuela and Spanish is their first language. He commented just the other day how easily his family members get along here when they visit. He works in Nashville/Brentwood/Franklin.

Hope that helps.

There are some areas of Nashville where a lot billboards and signs are in Spanish. Some of the major stores have changed the signs inside the stores to bilingual. As far as being out seeing people working places who speak Spanish, I've seen them mostly at banks and restaurants. I'm sure there are other places workers are bilingual, especially in certain areas where the hispanic population is high. I do also know that some schools (I heard one particular one for myself) that does announcements in English then again in Spanish. Which must mean there are a lot of people speaking Spanish around and most businesses cater to them because they want the business.

Hi Peach,
I can't say for Murfreesboro, but as for the Tri-Cities area, which I consider East TN, I don't hear a lot of spanish being spoken, some yes, but it is rare. Even people of spanish descent that I come across in the community, stores and such, seem to speak at least some English and do so.
I do know when I was in Morristown I noticed hearing more spanish than I am used too, but that is about it. What specific areas are you speaking of? That might help Kirim more?

We have a lot of Mexicans that live in the area. One of the little boys that attends my mother's daycare doesn't speak hardly any English. His mother understands very little too. His highschool age brother and sister come in to translate for her if she needs to talk to us. She works at a Mexican restaurant and seems to like it here. There are free english as a second language classes offered to anyone who would like to learn. I decided to minor in Spanish because there are so many spanish speaking children in the school system.
