Most of us assume if you're not speaking English in America, you're probably speaking Spanish. But there are a lot of other languages being spoken in this great melting pot ... and it's not the ones you think.

* German was the most popular third language overall, being spoken in about 16 states.

* 11 states had French as their most popular language (after English and Spanish).

* Vietnamese was the third most spoken language in Washington state.

* Georgia was home to the most Korean speakers.

* Tagalog was the third most spoken language in Nevada and California.
