PHOENIX (AP) - Arizona faces cultural and linguistic challenges in trying to educate the public about the federal health care overhaul and in marketing the changes to limited-English speakers and hard-to-reach populations.
More than 1.6 million people in Arizona age 5 and older speak a language besides English, and about 700,000 of them say they speak English less than "very well."
Here are the most commonly spoken languages besides English in the state:
|Number of speakers||Spoke English less than "Very Well"|
|Arizona resident over the age of 5 who speak language besides English||1,627,805||706,415|
