Languages spoken at home
In many Eastern Washington homes, Spanish is spoken more commonly than English. In Pasco, half the residents speak Spanish at home. In King County homes where English is not always spoken, Asian languages are most common. In Bellevue, about one in four people routinely speak a language other than English in the home. About half of those speak an Asian language.
