Why Learn to Speak Spanish?

There are a wide variety of reasons to add learning to speak Spanish to your list of things to accomplish in life. First of all, knowing the language gives you access to talk with much more people around the world. Spanish is the native language of people in Spain as well as Latin America, the United States, Mexico, Africa, Asia and many other countries as well.

According to estimates, more than 400 million people around the world are native Spanish speakers. That means that they were raised with the language so learning Spanish abroad was never an issue. Once you have your education, you will have the ability to converse with all of these people and learn about their cultures. Remember that Spanish is the second most widely spoken native language, after only Mandarin!

Further, if you live in the United States, the number of people who speak Spanish is growing at a rapid pace. More than 12% of people in the US speak Spanish in the home. Statistics say that there are now 50 million Spanish speakers in the country. This makes it only second to Mexico regarding how many in the country speak the language.

Additionally, about 60 million people have decided that learning to speak Spanish as a second language was a worthwhile pursuit. Many of them have opted for learning abroad, traveling to places like Argentina, Peru, Madrid or Barcelona to get their education.
