Spanish is spoken across four continents, with 329 million native speakers. Spanish ranks as the world’s No. 2 language in terms of how many people speak it as their first language. After Latin, the language that has had the biggest influence on Spanish is Arabic. Today, the foreign language exerting the most influence is English, and Spanish has adopted hundreds of English words related to technology and culture therefore making it one of the easiest foreign languages to learn for English and Arabic speakers. It is no wonder that the popularity of this language has remained consistent for decades.
What exactly do we learn in the Spanish classes?
Spanish classes are offered at six levels, and all the levels are divided into ten units, each with its own theme or topic. There is a general outcome for the level as a whole, and more specific learning outcomes for each unit. These outcomes are expressed in terms of what you should be able to do in Spanish by the time you reach the end of each unit; various grammar points are covered as they are appropriate to the themes of the units.
