Just wondering, but does anyone know how many countries have English as their main tongue?
It's hard to say... In many countries much of the population speaks English, though they don't have their day-to-day conversations in English. For their main tongue, meaning that the majority of all conversation and business is carried out in English, it is probably Anguilla*, Antigua and Barbuda, Australia, the Bahamas, Barbados, Bermuda*, Belize, the British Indian Ocean Territory*, the British Virgin Islands*, Canada, the Cayman Islands*, the Falkland Islands*, Gibraltar*, Grenada, Guam*, Guernsey*, Guyana, Ireland, Isle of Man*, Jamaica, Jersey*, Montserrat*, Nauru, New Zealand, Pitcairn Islands*, Saint Helena*, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands*, Trinidad and Tobago, the Turks and Caicos Islands*, the United Kingdom, the U.S. Virgin Islands*, and the United States.
Thus, the true countries with English as their primary language are
Antigua and Barbuda
Saint Kitts and Nevis
Saint Vincent and the Grenadines
Trinidad and Tobago
Here are a couple Wikipedia articles I found helpful:
