Immigration often determines the language and culture influence a city can have. This is what happened to Miami: because of the great number of people coming mainly from Cuba and Venezuela, Spanish is the most spoken language in Miami. In Miami Beach, instead, most people speak Spanglish, a hybrid language between Spanish and English.

Nightlife in Miami is very lively and caliente: you realize it immediately, simply listening to the music coming from the different clubs, where you can dance salsa all night long and enjoy the Caraibic food. Like in many other cities, the influence is not only a matter of language but involves culture and traditions as well.

So, what are you waiting for? Enter this magic land where the sun always shines and discover how beautiful a multi-culture background can be!

An “Almost New” City

Miami is a very young city: it was founded in 1896 and, at its very beginning, it had only 400 inhabitants. Its population grew quickly, though: 50 years later more than 170.000 people lived in there. Nowadays, Miami population is over 400.000 people.

Miami has never been an attractive place for the colonists to explore: they never really settled in there. It was the Cuban (before) and the Venezuelan revolutions that caused massive migrations from several different countries towards Miami. This determined the very quick growth of the city population and its new multi-cultural profile.
