Americans love Spanish

Why are Americans so interested in learning Spanish?

There are a number of reasons. We border Mexico, we have a lot of Spanish-speaking immigrants, and employers often look for bilingual workers.

When most Americans look at th world, they see so many Spanish speaking nations nearby on our own continent and in the South that it gives them a practical reason to learn it. I would say that most Americans learn a language only because its useful rather than as a creative process for personal growth or enjoyment. So when we look at the world, we often consider the most useful languages to be Spanish, Mandarin and French.

 

Spanish is very popular in the U.S. Most signs in the stores are in English and Spanish. Even when we call customer service numbers you will hear press one for English and two for Spanish ,and also the same reasons as the others stated above.
