Spanish is the second most spoken language in the world
With over 470 million native speakers, the Spanish language is a powerful way to communicate. Spanish is one of the most spoken languages in the world, second only to Mandarin Chinese. However, learning Spanish has an advantage: Spanish spans over 23 different countries, while Mandarin is officially recognized by only three. Learning Spanish truly means connecting with people globally.
Spanish doesn’t stop in Latin America. It is essential to understanding culture, business, and perhaps daily communication with your neighbors. In the US alone, there are over 50 million Spanish speakers. America is becoming a multilingual country, meaning companies and attitudes are changing along with it. Certainly Spanish is a good communication tool, but it is also an amazing addition to a resume or CV. If you’re trying to build a career, having such a useful language at your command would bump you to the top of the list.
Many famous actors make the Spanish language come to life for the masses. Penelope Cruz, Benecio del Toro, and Javier Bardem are from Spain, Salma Hayek is from Mexico and Sofia Vergara is from Colombia, to name a few. These people bring energy to the big screen, and showcase culture and variety to Hollywood that is important for millions of people around the globe.
If you are looking for a language that enhances career development, might communicate with the most people, and travels widely, Spanish can check all of those boxes. It’s an incredibly diverse and important language to learn, whether you plan on flying to Spain, Chile, or staying in your own backyard.
