9 Reasons To Learn Spanish║Lindsay Does Languages Video


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!
Do you learn Spanish? Porqué? I’d love to know your reasons in the comments below! And

  • El español y el inglés son difíciles de aprender y fáciles de aprender los dos tienen sus puntos buenos y puntos malos cosas fáciles y cosas difíciles ejemplo en español 5 vocales en inglés 1000000 maldito inglés

  • How would it be to learn Spanish as an L2? I mean, I'm a native Spanish speaker and there many conjugations, words, etc. There are times when we don't even know words or they way they're written.

  • English is difficult for me because it is more difficult to understand and I think that confusing the vowels makes a different word sound a bit stressful, but I will be learning more than I think it is a great language :3…pero no debo quejarme el español también cambia el significado por simples vocales xd ho a la misma palabra tiene distinto significado en los demás países en si saber idiomas es un gran logró :v

  • I have to learn spanish or french. Can someone help me choose? Spanish sounds easy but I think french is cool.

  • I'm native in spanish, I'm from Dominican Republic if you wanna practice your Spanish with me I can help you and you can help me with me english.

  • This pronunciation seems similar to Spain's Spanish. Costa Rican Spanish does not make any diference among /c/, /s/ and /z/ or /b/ and /v/. They're redundant not distinctive. There might be many different words from country to country, but we can still understand each other in Mexico, Colombia, Paraguay, etc.

  • Great presentation, you're so natural.
    Bailamos
    Despacito
    con Obsesión
    en la Isla Bonita
    en esta Vida Loca?
    Gracias.

  • A mí me cuesta el español, y soy latina. Imaginar a los que no son hispanohablantes pero quieren aprender español es pura pena.

  • Vivo en suecia, y en mi escuela its mandatory to read a b-language (unless tou struggle with swedish and english). We read swedish (ofc) and english (starting in 3rd grade((10 years old)) ) tengo catorce años y en otoño last year i started learning spanish and i dont regret it a single bit! Im not great but i have learnt alot in just a couple of months! Goooo!!! I have spanish 3 times a week for 40minutes-1 hour!

  • Aprendo el español porque creo que todos deberían aprender un idioma también mucha gente en el mundo habla este idioma.

  • I started learning Spanish last year, because my family encouraged me to. They thought that I should learn another language (I already know English and German almost fluently) and in my hometown I could take up Spanish or French, but I don't really like the latter. This turned out to be a great idea, seriously. My teacher, a native Spaniard, is awesome, just like this language! ❤️

  • Se escribe “Don Quijote”, no “Don Quixote”
    It's written “Don Quijote”, not “Don Quixote”

  • He aprendido espanol por dos meses. Lo que me sorprende es el hecho que mientras estoy mejorando mi espanol, tambien mi ingles. Obviamente, tengo mucho por hacer, pero es un proceso divertido.

  • Another tip for those wanting to learn Spanish: learn Spanish from South America not from Spain because Spaniards use a sound which doesn’t even exist in Spanish and that is the “th” sound aka a lisp. So instead of saying “zapatos” (pronounced how it is spelt) meaning shoes, they say it like “thapatoth” and same with Barcelona. Instead of pronouncing it how it is spelt (Bar-se-loh-na) they say “Bar-the-loh-na”.

  • +Lindsay Williams. If you're an English native, you already speak some French! English owns nearly half its vocabulary to the French language, making French vocabulary that much easier to learn. Memorizing lists of vocabulary will be thus reduced while learning French, then the grammar and lexical similarities between "les langues latines" (latin languages) will make it easier for you to take on Spanish some time later. Offer and Demand: You want more chances to get a job? There are plenty of Spanish speakers in the States, especially in Florida, but not that many French speaking ones. So, although you will see plenty of "offres d'emplois" (job offers) for Spanish speakers, they will likely prefer Spanish native speakers to you, when if you apply for a job that requires French speaking skills, you are unlikely to have to put up much of a fight against anyone else, especially if "vous parlez couramment le Français" (you are fluent in French). Your French skills will be that much more valuable to any potential employer.Influence in the global market:French is spread "autour du monde" (around the globe), and it is very influent on the international scene. Not only is French one of the six official language of the UN and thus very present in Europe, but half of Africa also speaks French. If you are a global market player, you must realize that the majority of French speakers don't actually live in France. Think emerging markets. French is present on 5 continents and it is the official language in many African countries such as Senegal, Niger, Togo, etc. , as well as in many european countries including Belgium, Luxembourg, Switzerland, Monaco, and also in Canada and Haiti!World traveller: According to France Diplomatie "French is also the only language, alongside English, that is taught in every country in the world." With its network of "Alliance françaises" (French alliance chapters) all over the globe, "France operates the biggest international network of cultural institutes, which run French-language courses for close on a million learners." French has a special international status; it is still the international "Lingua Franca", the language of choice for international relations. Even for countries where it is not the official language, French is still a language widely studied in schools, and the first second language studied in European schools. During your travels, you would then be able to speak with all those "étudiants" (students) who, like you, learned French as a second language, wether they are from Italy, Poland, Czech Republic, Germany, Japan, China, or Mexico!A reason to be proud: French is famous for its beauty and its complexity. And complex doesn't have to mean difficult: a good tutor will build on your previous knowledge of vocabulary, and turn the technicality of the language into a fun challenge. Piece of cake! French is also a language you are likely to hear spoken in the public transportations of big cities like New York and Washington. Imagine what it would feel to actually understand and take part of that conversation? "La frime!" (show-off!). In addition, French opens the door to studying abroad.French brings you closer to Culture AND sports! Famous for being "La langue de la Culture" (the language of Culture), French really has a unique relation to the Arts. Learning French will give you a new understanding of "Le musée du Louvres", the French painters, French style and fashion, Dance, and give you direct access to "la cuisine française" (French cuisine) and to famous French authors like Molière. France has a remarkable library of literature, reputably the biggest in the world. If you feel like more of a sport fan than a sophisticated intellectual, don't forget that French is also the official language of the " Jeux Olympiques" (Olympic Games)!

    Summary:

    So many reasons to learn French, so why not starting now! Wether a high school student making language choices to guide his career or a traveller looking for the next great adventure, French is a great language choice. Don't fear it, the right language tutor will make learning French as breezy as a walk… at the beach 😉

  • French is also the biggest language in Africa. Which is the world's biggest continent and the world's most French speaking continent. With French being the most biggest and beautiful language in the world.
