Spanish, one of the most spoken language across the world, the second just behind the Mandarin Chinese. Over 6% of the population speak it and more than 60 million speak it as a second language. Spanish speakers find it easier to learn other languages like Italian, French, and Portuguese, because of the Latin roots.
One of the best options to learn Spanish is to study with native people, even better if you can study in a country that speaks Spanish as a first language! This is why Mexico is one of your best options. Mexico is a big country with rich cultural traditions, beautiful landscapes, and great gastronomy!
