Quieres bailar? Vamos a la fiesta!
Do you speak Spanish? You totally should! What are you doing? You’re missing out! Today
I’m gonna give you 9 reasons why you should learn Spanish. Go go go!
Razón numero uno: Ok to begin with, 406 million people speak Spanish as a native language.
That’s second only to Mandarin Chinese. Wow, I’m gonna stop this video right here. That’s
enough reason for me. Razón numero dos: Along with Arabic, English,
French, Chinese and Russian, Spanish is one of the official languages of the United Nations.
So you know if you wanna be a big shot world player, it’s a good one to go for.
Razón numero tres: Spanish is the language of pretty much a continent…if we exclude
Brazil…the biggest country in the continent and three tiny countries up top but hey! Still
a big continent. Bigger than Europe – you could fit 19.728 Europes in South America.
Did you know that? Mmm hmm. Razón numero 4: As well as like a gazillion
Spanish speakers around the world, Spanish is the second biggest language in the US of
A. And you can not deny that they’re a major world player. So Spanish isn’t just a language
for Spain and for South America but for the world.
I’m feeling like this is slightly sounding like Spanish is only really useful if you’re
on the other side of the Atlantic. Let’s flip this around!
Razón numero 5: Spain is the most popular tourist destination for Brits according to
SkyScanner, and has been since 2005. So we’re going there, but can we ask for la cuenta
or una cerveza when we’re there? Let’s do this!
Razón numero 6: If you learn Spanish then you’ll be able to understand those inevitable
2 or 3 songs at the end of every Enrique Iglesias, Jennifer Lopez, Christina Aguilera or Shakira
album. Razón numero 7…I always have to check my
fingers. I did a lot of research and the top Google search for “Is Spanish the same as…”
comes as this: “Is Spanish the same as Mexican?”, “Is Spanish the same as Portuguese?”, “Is
Spanish the same as Hispanic?”, “Is Spanish the same as Italian?”. The answer to all of
those questions is NO! Mexican and Hispanic – not languages. Let’s
get that out the way first. Portuguese and Italian – not the same language as Spanish!!
But, granted, they are very similar and if you learn Spanish, you’re gonna have a major
heads up if you want to learn Italian and Portuguese later on. It’s not quite buy one
get one free…more like a loyalty card scheme. Razón numero 8: Hispanic literature is among
the best in the world. Take one example: Don Quixote. Potentially the second most sold
book ever. It’s really hard to pin down an exact number but it’s believed to have sold
over 500 million copies making it second only to the Bible. Wow.
Razón numero 9: Finally, a reassuring reason if you’ve been convinced by any of the others
in this video: Spanish is a relatively easy language to learn. Forget complicated English
spelling! Spanish is phonetic. You say what you see. It’s like Catchphrase! Catchphrase
is great, so, thus, by default, Spanish is great! Yay!
Razón numero 10: Seriously? You’re still here? Gahh! Go learn Spanish!
