Hispanic Studies

Spanish is one of the world's major languages, with 350 million native speakers in 21 Spanish-speaking countries. Spain has the fifth largest population in the European Union and also the fifth largest economy. Because of its importance commercially, and as the language of cultures on both sides of the Atlantic which few can rival, Spanish is one of the most valuable and exciting languages you can learn. It can be picked up relatively easily from scratch, particularly if you have already studied French.
