Language is a means to communicate not just words, but values, beliefs and customs. Studying another language opens you to other cultures while allowing you to gain a more profound understanding of your own culture and language.

Spanish is one of the two most spoken languages in the world, with 577 million speakers in 21 countries around the world.
