About the Spanish Language

Spanish (español ) or Castilian (castellano) is a Romance language originally from the northern area of Spain. From there, its use gradually spread inside the Kingdom of Castile, where it evolved and eventually became the principal language of the government and trade. It was later taken to Africa, the Americas and Asia Pacific when they were brought under Spanish colonial rule between the 15th and 19th centuries.

The language is spoken by between 322 and 400 million people natively, making Spanish the most spoken Romance language and possibly the second most spoken language by number of native speakers.

Today, it is one of the official languages of Spain, most Latin American countries and Equatorial Guinea. In total, 21 nations use Spanish as their primary language. Spanish is also one of six official languages of the United Nations.

Spaniards tend to call this language español (Spanish) when contrasting it with languages of other states, such as French and English, but call it castellano (Castilian), that is, the language of the Castile region, when contrasting it with other languages spoken in Spain such as Galician, Basque, and Catalan. This reasoning also holds true for the language's preferred name in some Hispanic American countries. In this manner, the Spanish Constitution of 1978 uses the term castellano to define the official language of the whole Spanish State

The name castellano is however widely used for the language as a whole in Latin America. Some Spanish speakers consider castellano a generic term with no political or ideological links, much as "Spanish" is in English. Often Americans use it to differentiate their own variety of Spanish as opposed to the variety of Spanish spoken in Spain, or vice-versa, to refer to that variety of Spanish which is considered as standard in the region.

Mexico has the world's largest Spanish-speaking population. Spanish is the second most widely spoken language in the United States and by far the most popular studied foreign language in U.S. schools and universities. Spanish is among the most popular foreign languages for study in the rest of the nations of the Anglosphere in general, where on top of the widespread use of English globally, the large number of additional countries and geographic territory that Spanish allows exploring is an attractive prospect for many people. Due to proximity, linguistic similarities, and trade reasons it is also a very popular second language in France, Italy, Portugal, and particularly the southern states of Brazil. It is estimated that the combined total of native and non-native Spanish speakers is approximately 500 million, likely making it the fourth most spoken language by total number of speakers. Global internet usage statistics for 2007 show Spanish as the third most commonly used language on the internet, after English and Chinese.

 


The Pimsleur method  is an sound experience linguistic communication acquisition methodology constructed by Paul Pimsleur that stresses dynamic engagement over rote memorization. During teaching, the listener is repeating keywords spoken by indigenous speakers and constructs new sentences by inference. As new important phrases are introduced, the listener is persuaded to think of slightly older important phrases. The prompts for any supplied phrase are bit by bit spaced out in ever-increasing stretches. Somewhere between 1963 and 1971, Dr Paul Pimsleur created Greek, French, Spanish, German, and Twi classes while schooling at the University of California, Los Angeles. The Pimsleur lanuage learning system stresses on ability in speaking, as well as competency in reading. These 2 attributes are refined through 30-minute sessions, which are reiterated until a rating of at a minimum eighty% knowledge is accomplished before going ahead to the subsequent tutorial. For the duration of the classes, people listen to native people of the subject spoken language as they speak words and phrases in simultaneously the foreign language, combined with the student’s number one language. At calibrated time periods, individuals are persuaded to duplicate a key phrase immediately following being attentive to the talker. As the pupil moves along through the study course, the period grows, as does the dimensions of the vocabulary. The courses are made up of thirty-minute regular programs and short reviewing courses
