Learn Spanish (Latin American)

Latinamerikansk spanska är ett romanspråk med många likheter i grammatik och ordförråd, vilket gör det lättare att få in om du har lärt dig ett annan. De latinska baserade romanska språken talas oftast i området i det före detta västra romerska riket. Men många talas nu utöver Europa, vilket inkluderar portugisiska i Brasilien, spanska i Latinamerika och franska i många delar av Afrika.
