Whether we like it or not… knowing some Spanish makes us more competitive in our day to day multi lingual world. Technology and the earth’s growing population makes the global economy of increasing importance to mankind’s evolution. This will increase, not decrease the clash of languages.
Spanish is the second most spoken language and its importance is growing in the USA.
Here are 13 of 23 facts presented by the Spanish Translation Service that shows why we dare not be a one language person in a multi lingual world.
