Linguistic heritage

Over 490 million people all over the world speak Spanish. The national language of Spain and Latin America is currently undergoing a moment of great popularity. Spanish is increasingly becoming the number-one option when choosing a new language to learn among non-Spanish speakers. A sign of this trend is the network of centres all over the world established by the Cervantes Institute. Spain, as the leading destination for learning its lingua franca, offers the best possibilities and amenities for study. In addition to Castilian Spanish, there are another four official languages spoken in Spain: Catalan (in Catalonia and the Balearic Islands); Valencian (in the Region of Valencia); Galician (in Galicia); and Euskera (in the Basque Country). This is just one more indication of the cultural, historical and social richness to be found in Spain.
