Those students learning to speak Spanish have been drawn to the language by business, travel and culture. In many cases, these students work for companies linked to Spanish-speaking countries, and so need to interact with Spanish speakers who have little English.
The lure of travel to Spanish-speaking countries creates a strong attraction – places such as Argentina, Chile, Mexico and Spain. Many aspects of the culture also provide a strong appeal, including the music (salsa), the food (tacos, paella, quesadillas, pisco, margaritas and tequila), the painters (Picasso and Frida Kahlo), as well as directors and actors such as Almodovar and Antonio Banderas. Learning the language of course opens all sorts of doors to this vibrant and colourful world.
Spanish is the second most widely spoken language in the world. Did you know if you speak Spanish you can communicate with nearly 500 million people? In an age of increased global communication and travel it's no surprise that Spanish is one of the most popular additional or “foreign” languages being studied as having a basic knowledge of Spanish is a great help when travelling abroad.
