It is estimated that 89% of the Spanish speaking population lives on the American Continent. This represents Hispanics whose first language is Spanish and that speak Spanish exclusively. This does not include those who speak Spanish as a second language. In fact, the United States is the second largest Spanish-speaking country in the world with 61.8 million Spanish speakers, second only to Mexico with 114.5 million, and followed by Spain with 48.4 million.
If one includes Colombia, these four countries represent over 50% of all Spanish speakers in the world. Spanish is: One of the easiest languages to learn; one of the most widely spoken languages in the world; is the second language most widely used in international communication; One of the official languages of the United Nations and its organizations; useful in creating a wide range of opportunities.
I quite often stumble on a great article on learning Spanish that genuinely draws my interest. The ensuing blog post on the subject of the said subject most definitely meets that description. It really does a really good job of outlining how to learn Spanish and I believe that you’ll also find it completely beneficial just as I did.
