A professor at an Ohio college said it is impossible to find anyone who speaks French.
In the years since the 2016 election, the number of Americans living in households with no native speakers has grown.
The U.S. Census Bureau found that the proportion of Americans with no French-speaking relatives has risen from just over 2 percent in 1990 to about 6 percent in 2015.
More than half of Americans have no French spoken at home, up from just under 4 percent in 1980, according to a Pew Research Center report.
A 2016 study of 1,700 Americans living on the east coast found that more than 60 percent of Americans did not have a single native speaker.
“The majority of American adults don’t speak a single language at home,” said Anne Marie Cox, an assistant professor of education and linguistics at Ohio State University.
She and other experts say the number is on the rise and the problem is getting worse.
I think there’s a disconnect between the number and the number, she said.
I think it’s more that we’re not learning to communicate with each other, and we’re learning to think in English, rather than in French.
We’re not going to be able to build bridges and communicate across the border.
We’re not doing it.
It’s a cultural problem, not a technical one.
Experts said that is largely due to language and cultural barriers that limit access to language learning opportunities in American society.
Students who struggle with language and the inability to find teachers or classmates often turn to a social network, which often lacks language and communication resources.
Cox said that the number one way to help students cope with the language barrier is to find an outside tutor.
We need to have the ability to talk to other people in a foreign language.
Some schools offer tutoring for students who have difficulty speaking English and to provide language tutoring in some schools.
Another option is to have a professional language tutor or tutor for students.
But in some cases, parents and students don’t feel comfortable having a professional tutor.
In the meantime, they often turn instead to their own families.
Many Americans with a non-English-speaking family member or friend are choosing to stay home, and those who stay home have fewer options to learn a second language.
The Pew Research report found that a significant percentage of Americans who have a family member who has a language barrier have had their ability to communicate in English reduced by one-third over the last decade.
Most of those who do not have the opportunity to speak English are able to communicate through the Internet, but for those who cannot, social media is another way to communicate, the report found.
They don’t want to use social media, Cox said.
They want to just talk to their family, friends and neighbors, but they can’t do that.
What can you do?
There are several ways to help.
For example, parents can send their children to bilingual schools.
That means they are not required to learn French to do their jobs.
Other schools can help with language instruction, including English-language learning at summer camps and other educational opportunities.
Also, teachers can take on jobs that require learning French, like teaching ESL classes or helping students develop new vocabulary.
And, in some states, such as New York and Florida, a tax credit program offers parents the opportunity for free language learning, Cox noted.
