The Spanish Language
With 410 million native speakers the Spanish language is the second most-spoken language in the World. It is the official language in 21 countries above all and it counts many different accents.
As one of six official languages of the United Nations, it is the official language of the European Union, the Organization of American States, and the Union of South American Nations, among other international organizations.
The language of the Castile region of Spain became the official Spanish language thanks to King Alfonso’s efforts in the 13th century.
The Royal Spanish Academy (Real Academia Española), created in the 18th century, is widely considered the arbiter of standard Spanish. It produces authoritative dictionaries and grammar guides. Although its decisions do not have the force of law, they are widely followed in both Spain and Latin America.
Although Spanish comes from the Iberian Peninsula as a descendant of Latin, today it has far more speakers in Latin America. This is mostly due to the Spanish colonization of the New World
Arabic was the next big influence on Spanish after Latin and today, the language exerting the most influence is English. Spanish has adopted hundreds of English words, especially those related to technology and culture.
