Which U.S. president spoke English as his second language?

Answer:

MARTIN VAN BUREN

Unlike the seven men who preceded him in the White House, Martin Van Buren was the first president to be born a citizen of the United States and not a British subject. He was born in a Dutch dominated village of Kinderhook in New York State. He was raised speaking Dutch and learned English at school, making him the only U.S. president who spoke English as a second language. Standing just 5 feet 6 inches tall, the “Little Magician” was elected Vice President on the Jacksonian ticket in 1832, and won the Presidency in 1836.
