The Spanish language is one of the world’s most-spoken languages – second, in fact; today there are around 550 million (400 million native) speakers of the language worldwide. Spanish is the primary language of many countries: Spain, its namesake, all of Central America, most of South America, and parts of the Caribbean.
In addition to these native places, Spanish is spoken in much of North America as there is a growing population of Spanish-speaking diaspora. Spanish is not such a difficult language to learn for most English speakers, and is increasingly one of the most sought-after languages in the business world.
Spanish, or español in its own language, is sometimes referred to as Castilian, or castellano. It is the third most spoken language in the world, with over a half-billion speakers. Learn the letters and pronunciation of the Spanish alphabet and words HERE »
