Non-Native Speakers of Spanish
In the European Union, Spanish is the mother tongue of 8% of the population, with an additional 7% speaking it as a second language. Additionally, Spanish is the second most spoken language in the United States and is by far the most popular foreign language among students. In 2015, it was estimated that over 50 million Americans spoke Spanish, about 41 million of whom were native speakers. With continued immigration and increased use of the language domestically in public spheres and media, the number of Spanish speakers in the United States is expected to continue growing over the forthcoming decades.
The two main variations are from Spain and Latin America. There are some differences in pronunciation, vocabulary, and grammatical use. For example, the use of the second person plural pronoun, “vosotros,” is used in Spain but not in Latin America, where “ustedes” is used instead.
Origin and History
Previously called Castilian, after the region of Spain where it originated; the European variant is still known as Castilian Spanish. The most frequently studied second language in the United States (for native English speakers), Spanish is second only to English in terms of international communication. Like the other Romance languages, Spanish comes from Vulgar Latin, introduced by the Romans in the Iberian Peninsula during the Second Punic War in 270 BC.
