Every language is important. They are vehicles for culture and communication, they provide you with knowledge, improve your braincells conections... but we will speak about that in other posts. I want to talk today about the importance of the Spanish language in the world.
Spanish is the official language in:
That´s 20 countries altogether! 10% of the world countries aprox. Besides it is also spoken in the U.S.A. by 40 million people! So altogether makes a total of 477 million people. If we add the people who speaks it as a second language, that is 572 million people.
I think that those figures are enough in order to realise how important in the world is the language that Miguel de Cervantes spoke.
