THREE FUN FACTS ABOUT SPANISH

1. Spanish is poetic and has long sentences

When you translate from English to Spanish, your text is likely to expand by 15-25%. The reason for this expansion lies in the fact that Spanish is more detailed, poetic and expressive. For example, the phrase en el sentido de las agujas del reloj literally means “in the direction of the needles of the clock,” but in English we would simply say “clockwise.” 

2. Mexico is The Largest Spanish-Speaking Country 

With a population of over 121 million people who speak Spanish, Mexico is geographically the largest Spanish-speaking country. With nearly 53 million people, the United States is home to the globe’s second-largest Spanish-speaking population, followed by Colombia, Spain and Argentina.

3. Spanish is Relatively Easy to Learn 

English native speakers find Spanish to be a relatively easy language to learn. It takes an English native speaker around 22-24 weeks of study to reach a general proficiency in speaking and reading. General social proficiency, however, is attained earlier and this is the level needed to travel and conduct conversations with locals on a variety of topics.
