Spanish everywhere

With well over 35 million Spanish speakers in the United States, and with over 40% of the population growth being among the Hispanic people, the stage is set for an enormous increase in Spanish usage in the United States.

This has sparked a lot of interest among US citizens, a group not particularly known for their multilingualism.

This interest will only increase as the Hispanic population of the US approaches 50 million by the year 2015.

But it's not only in the US where Spanish is popular. In Europe, Spanish is the second most popular second language, after English. With some 400 million speakers, Spanish is the second most commonly spoken language in the world.

Spanish is an official language on four continents and is the mother tongue in 21 countries.

The sheer number of Spanish speakers and their rate of growth makes learning Spanish a smart choice.
