Spanish originated in Spain, and it closely resembles Portuguese, as both are Latin in their derivation and, therefore, Romance languages. The Spanish language was spread during the 1500s by Spanish colonialists coming from Spain to South America. Since then, the language has grown and is now the fourth most-spoken language in the world. Spanish is still rising in popularity, as it has 98 million non-native speakers and 402 million native speakers. Don’t you want to be a member of the ever-growing population of Spanish speakers?
