What advantages are there to learning Spanish today?

Spanish is the most spoken language among the Romance languages, both in terms of the number of speakers and in terms of the number of countries in which the language predominates. Worldwide there are over 400 million native Spanish speakers. 

Naturally, pronunciation and use of Spanish at the oral level vary by country, but regional differences are not so great as to make the language unintelligible to speakers of the different regions. Unlike popular belief, there is not a single Spanish. There are different dialects of Spanish due to language evolution in different regions.

The Importance of Spanish Today:
The Spanish speaking population is one of the fastest growing segments in the world, especially in the United States. The Spanish-speaking segment constitutes a huge community that shares products, services and culture, and offers to businesses and institutions a truly unique growth opportunity. 

Here are some important facts about Spanish language:

·         Spanish, the official language of twenty countries, is the most spoken language in the world after English and Mandarin.

·         Worldwide there are over 400 million native Spanish speakers.

·         Experts predict that by 2050 there will be over 530 million Spanish speakers, with 100 million living in the United States.

·         Demand for Spanish documents and information has grown exponentially. This becomes evident in the United States, where Hispanics recently became the largest minority group in the country.
