Spanish is one of the most widely spoken languages in the world. Over 500 million people speak it. This video points out some of the reasons why Spanish now–in 2023–is an essential language to learn.
Good for Travel
Perhaps the most useful feature of Spanish, like any other language, is that it will help you get around cities and countries where Spanish is the spoken language. If you are planning a trip to Mexico, Central America, South America, or Spain itself, it is a good idea to speak the language of the native population.
Great for your Job
Spanish can also help you in your job. If you work in an industry that requires cross-cultural communication, your ability to speak Spanish competently can be a real asset. It may even make you the go-to person for particular projects.
Makes You a Well-Rounded Person
There is also the pure joy of knowing another language. If you pursue your studies to a more advanced level, you will be able to find books in Spanish and enjoy the literature of culturally-rich Spanish-speaking countries. Watching the video will give you insight into why learning Spanish is a great return on your time and monetary investment.
