Discover the world’s second-most spoken language

According to the Spanish government’s Cervantes Institute, Spanish is the world’s second-most spoken mother language. Over 572 million people can speak the language worldwide. This number is expected to rise to 754 million by 2050 as more people discover the benefits of learning Spanish. Spanish is the official language of countries like Argentina, Mexico, Costa Rica and (you guessed it) Spain, making it a popular choice among those looking to learn a second language for travel.

FutureLearn has online Spanish courses to help you learn essential greetings and phrases to use in everyday situations. You will develop the ability to describe yourself and others, talk about your job and hobbies, and ask for directions when you’re out and about. Learning Spanish online can open up new opportunities for work and travel as well as help you appreciate the rich culture of the Spanish-speaking world.
