Learn Spanish

This is the European version of Spanish, which differs from its Latin American counterpart in pronunciation, vocabulary and occasionally grammar, although all varieties of Spanish are mutually understandable. Spanish developed from Vulgar Latin and has similarities to other Romance languages including French, Catalan, Portuguese and Italian. Globally, it has over 430 million native speakers- only a small fraction of these are located in Spain. The language is also referred to as Castilian, which distinguishes it from the other languages spoken in Spain.
