Why learn Spanish? ¿Por qué aprender español?

"Aquí se habla español" by Twinkletinker

"Every child in the United States should learn Spanish... Chinese makes a terrific addition to Spanish, but not a substitute."
Nicholas D. Kristof

With well over 35 million Spanish speakers in the United States, and with over 40% of the population growth being among the Hispanic people, the stage is set for an enormous increase in Spanish usage in the United States. This has sparked a lot of interest among US citizens. This interest will only increase as the Hispanic population of the US approaches 50 million by the year 2015. But it's not only in the US where Spanish is popular. In Europe, Spanish is the second most popular second language, after English.
