Why learn Spanish

Spanish is spoken by more than 570 million people, including more than 470 million who speak the language with native competence. It is a Romance language and shares its Latin origins with several other European languages, including French, Italian, Portuguese and Romanian. It is the official language in more than 20 countries and is spoken as the main language throughout South America, except in Brazil, where the official language is Portuguese. Spanish is also spoken by a growing number of people in North America, particularly in the United States, where some have speculated it may become the majority language later in the 21st century. There is a large community of Spanish speakers in Australia and in Canberra, where more than 4,000 speak the language at home, according to the 2021 Census. For data based on the 2016 Australian Census, see the summary for language spoken at home in the ACT on the ".id - the population experts" website (select Show all under the table).
