One in four Brits say that hearing people talk in languages other than English in the UK bothers them.
A new survey has revealed that 26 per cent of Brits are bothered by hearing conversations in other languages while they are in the UK.
YouGov asked 1,461 British adults the question: "When in the UK, are you bothered when you hear those from a non-English speaking country talking to each other in their own language, or not?"
The majority of those surveyed said they were not bothered at all, while eight percent said they would be 'very bothered' and a further 18 per cent said they would be 'fairly bothered'.
When the figures were broken down by political allegiance, YouGov found that 41 per cent of people who voted Leave in the EU referendum said they would be bothered by hearing conversations not in English - compared to only 14 per cent of Remain voters.
Men were more likely to be bothered than women, while 18-24-year-olds were the least likely age group to be bothered.
In an earlier survey YouGov asked participants whether disliking people who reside in the UK speaking languages other than English in public was racist.
Nearly 60 per cent of people said they thought it was racist behaviour, while 31 per cent said it was not.
Another survey found that nine out of 10 Brits agreed that racism is a problem in UK society.
It also found that on the whole, most Brits think people in the UK are uncomfortable talking about race.
Just over a third think we are either 'fairly uncomfortable' or 'not comfortable at all', with next to no variation along gender, age, or political lines.
