So why learn Spanish?

Reise
As one of the world's major languages, a knowledge of Spanish is almost essential for the traveller in South America, especially outside the major cities. Also Spain itself has many places of interest where a knowledge of the language would make a visit more enjoyable.

Literature
Spain has some of the richest literature in the world which is best enjoyed in the original to be fully appreciated. The so-called "Golden Age" of Spanish literature is the seventeenth century with writers such as Cervantes, Lope de Vega, and Calderón.

Easy to learn
Spanish is relatively easy to learn. The pronunciation takes some mastering but is regular in the sense that, once having learnt how to pronounce a certain sound, it can be applied consistently to other words. A knowledge of other Romance languages such as French, Italian, or Portuguese gives an obvious advantage as much of the vocabulary is similar.
