Spanish makes it easier to learn many other languages!


Learning Spanish should be seen as an investment. Not only will you speak this beautiful and ubiquitous language, but you will receive a deep discount on other fine languages from the Romance family.


Should you want to learn French, Portuguese or Italian, three important languages, or even mess with Latin, Catalan or Romanian, you will learn them in 50% to 80% less time than it took you to learn Spanish. Those languages have very similar vocabularies, with many words derived from Latin, and almost the same grammar. Learn the dreaded but all-important subjunctive tense and you can use it in all these languages. The differences in grammar are minor and you'll need to concentrate mostly on differences in pronunciation, idioms and vocabulary.

If you do not already speak another Romance language, learning one is an absolute must. Spanish makes good candidate for a first Romance language, because if you stop after you have learned Spanish, you will be stuck with a useful language. If you start by Romanian because you like Vlad Tepezsch, you will still benefit from the 'discount' should you want to later study other, more important Romance languages, but in the meanwhile you will be stuck with a language that is spoken in few countries only. It's like buying one DVD for $19.99 and getting an 80% discount on every other DVD in the store. Or a lifelong all-you-can-eat buffet. French is a close competitor for a good first Romance language.

Modern Spanish developed with the Readjustment of the Consonants (Reajuste de las sibilantes) that began in 15th century. The language continues to adopt foreign words from a variety of other languages, as well as developing new words.

Discussions of these subjects generally veer off into pointlessness, because they're based on morality and myth. People talk about what people should do, what languages they should speak or not speak. But you can't talk about that till you know what's involved in learning a language-- how hard it is, what's needed to do it, when it happens or doesn't happen. When these things are discussed at all, people generally get their facts wrong
