Unless they try to force some auxlang on everyone (which they might have to do); I'd say English and Spanish would be the two biggies. With the obvious minorities of Native langs (not so minority in some places, perhaps); French and a few others. Either that or _everyone_ learns the two main languages, regardless of cradle tongue. Maya speakers would have to learn English and Spanish; English speakers would only have to learn Spanish. I don't think there's _any_ way you can get everyone to learn just one. Neat history, though.
