As the second most spoken language in the world, being the mother tongue of more than 440 million speakers, Spanish is becoming more and more essential in the commercial sector due to the developing industries in Latin America. The increasing number of students who decide to attend Spanish classes has established the language as the fourth most studied in Europe.
Castilian Spanish is recognised as the official language in Spain, Equatorial Guinea, New Mexico and Easter Island, many countries of Central America, of South America on the western coast and (de facto) in New Mexico.
Catalan, the language known for the autonomous community of Catalonia in north-east Spain, derives from Vulgar Latin. It is not a Spanish dialect, as many would think; it is a different language, which developed during the Middle Ages. Nowadays it is considered to be the official language of Catalonia, Andorra, the Balearic Islands and the Valencian Community.
A stereotype that most people have is that if you know Italian, you can speak Spanish just by adding an “s” at the end of the words. This is obviously not true, but these two languages are indeed very similar to each other in terms of grammar and vocabulary, since they are both Romance ones and come from Vulgar Latin. During the centuries, Spanish was influenced by Italian as well as by Celtic, Basque, Arabic and Portuguese.
Moreover, Spanish is one of the official languages of the United Nations and of the European Union, and Spain is a member of both. Accordingly, Spanish has an important position in Europe thanks to the import-export trade with other European countries and its tourism sector. In fact, Spain is one of the most popular destinations for summer holidays among European citizens.
