"Telugu was the fastest-growing language in the United States between 2010 and 2017, nearly doubling the number of speakers with an 86 percent growth," said a report by CNBC in 2020. It continues to be so even after 2017.

As per a report quoted by Venture Capitalist Aviral Bhatnagar, Telugu is the fastest-growing language in the United States in the last 10 years, with a growth rate of a whopping 150%. The second-fastest one is Arabic (62%). As can be seen clearly, the second ranker trails the first one by a distance.

Here are the next ones on the list:

3. Hindi (61%)

4. Urdu (45%)

5. Chinese (35%)

6. Gujarati (31%)

Among Indian languages, Hindi stands at No. 2, while Gujarati is at No. 3.

Commenting on the stunning growth of Telugu, a Twitter user wrote, "This exodus is not due to the population or resource pressure at home. These are the best guys who have STEM degrees and doctorates who went there looking for better opportunities." "Personally know many Telugu friends whose parents still think going to the US is the ultimate achievement in life. This notion is there everywhere but among Telugu people the craze is unmatched," tweeted Sujay Hebbar.
