Spanish as a foreign language

The Spanish Language

Countries with Spanish as Official language

Spanish is the most widely spoken Romance language in terms of the number of speakers, and the number of countries which claim it as the official language. From its origins in Spain, the Spanish language was carried to the new world by trade, conquest, and colonization. Today, it is spoken throughout much of Central and South America (except Brazil), Equatorial Guinea in Africa, in addition to Spain. It is also the second most spoken language in the United States, where it is gradually expanding, having currently 45 millions of speakers (more than the population of Spain) and over 6 millions of students, turning the country into the second largest Hispanophone country in the world.

As the official language of 21 countries, Spanish gradually becomes a language popular with Chinese people, increasingly more so among secondary students in Hong Kong as a second language; and for adults, as a second or third language.
