Nowadays, the number of Spanish students is significantly expanding worldwide. One of the reasons why Spanish has made a place for itself as an important second language is because of its increasing dominance in communication due to globalisation.

The most important reasons for learning Spanish
There are many other reasons that might persuade someone to start studying this popular language. The most striking facts about the Spanish language are that:
1) it is the official language of 21 countries;
2) it is third only to Mandarin Chinese in terms of its number of native speakers
worldwide;
3) it is the second most widely spoken language in the world in terms of native speakers;
4) it is the most popular second language learned by native speakers of American English; and
5) it is the second language used for international communication, after English.

Personal benefits of learning Spanish
Aside from the importance of Spanish in global communication, there are also more "personal" reasons; those which have to do with our personal development as human beings. When we study a foreign language and we get to know how it works, we are also getting to know the different cultural characteristics that define its native speakers. This is definitely an enriching process that will enable us to understand the cultures and societies surrounding us.

Spanish learning process
As for the difficulties related to the learning process, they are reduced when it comes to the Spanish language. In fact, one of the reasons why Spanish language is so popular is because it is phonetically easy to learn. Moreover, since it is a romance language, it shares many grammatical and lexical features with other romance languages such as French, Italian and Portuguese, for example. Such common features might help you learn these other languages in an easy and logical way.

                            

Spanish language in the U.S.

If you get to know Spanish well, you will be able to communicate with almost 500 million people worldwide. Besides this, more employment opportunities will be available to you, especially in the U.S., where there is a preference for those who are fluent in both English and Spanish. This is also due to the fact that close to 30 million people in the U.S. are Hispanic, which means there are many Spanish-speaking consumers, and the number will be increasing over the years.

Spanish language in Europe
At this point it is essential to mention that Spanish is also one of the official languages of the European Union and is spoken by a significant number of people in many European countries such as France, Germany, Switzerland and also in the United Kingdom. It has quickly become the second language choice at school and at university after English. It will also help you travelling around Spain to make the most of what the country has to offer in terms of its culture.

Spanish language in South America

Last but not least, Spanish is the native language for most citizens of South America (except for Brazil), 19 countries in total. If you speak Spanish as a foreign language, it will be easier for you to discover these countries and their impressive and unique cultural characteristics.
