.....English is the Only Language of Guyana!

Similar to the Thirteen Original American Colonies, Guyana is a former British colony. English is the only Official language of Guyana. 99% percent of the people of Guyana speak English!


Guyana, formerly known as British Guiana, is located on the north-east coast of South America. Guyana is 82,978 square miles in area, slightly smaller than the state of Idaho.

Similarly to the original Thirteen American Colonies, Guyana was once a British Colony. English is the official language of Guyana and is spoken by 99% of the population.

Guyana's population growth is negative. Due mainly to emigration to the USA. Only 650,000 people remain in Guyana.

According to some studies, of those people who remain in Guyana, almost each and every one of them is awaiting the issuance of a visa for the USA!

More than 350,000 Guyanese people have already immigrated to the USA! Over 100,000 Guyanese have become United States citizens. The other 250,000 may become citizens upon fulfilling the statutory requirements of naturalization. The overwhelming majority of these individuals support the incorporation of Guyana into the USA.
