Just in case you are wondering, Miami proper has more native Spanish speakers than English. However, in the larger urban area, there are more English speakers. All the major California and Texas cities are also predominately English-speaking if we go by urban area.

I think it was the biggest English speaking cities quiz that didn't have Miami on it. I can remember that causing arguments. I think things have changed a bit now.

Quiz strategy:

1. Spend 4.5 minutes guessing cities in Latin America.
2. With 30 seconds left, suddenly remember that Spain exists.
