Why Learn Spanish?
Spanish is spoken by almost 300 million people worldwide, a number that is growing significantly every day. About half of the population in the Western Hemisphere speaks Spanish, making it the primary language for as many people as English in this region of the world. The entire continent of South America speaks primarily Spanish (aside from Brazil), as does just about all of Central America, Mexico and Latin America – over 15 countries in total.
In the United States, Spanish is the language most widely spoken besides English – by a very wide margin. There are areas, especially in large cities such as Miami, New York and Los Angeles where there are entire communities that speak primarily Spanish and often very little English. In fact, in the U.S., more and more, opportunities are increasing for those who are fluent in both Spanish and English due to the explosion in the Spanish-speaking population. Media and advertisers can no longer ignore this huge market, and Spanish-speaking television, newspapers, and advertisements have all proven hugely successful, especially in the large cities. This trend is only continuing to gain momentum, meaning that the ability to speak Spanish and English will continue to become more valuable both personally and professionally in the coming years.
We have compiled a list of our Top 20 Spanish Phrases. This can be a start on your road to preparation. The more preparation and study you do beforehand, the easier and quicker the language will come to you when you travel abroad.
