    'If you're even the least familar with population trence(?) in Amercia, then you'll know every year, more and more Spanish speaking people from Latin Amercia go to live in the US.'

    "If you know just a little about population trends in America, you will know that every year more Spanish speaking people from Latin America go to live in the USA."

    Thank you! bhaisahab. Your recasting is clear and simple, thank you very much!

    Just for practice, do you think it is a bit weird If I rewrite that sentence as 'Even if you're the least familar with the population trends in America, you'll know that every year more and more Spanish speaking people go to live in the USA.'?

    Thank you!

    Fine, though 'then' is not essential.
