For those who want to learn Spanish, Spain is a good place to follow Spanish language programs. Some of the benefits of learning Spanish in Spain include: * learning to speak Castilian Spanish (castellano). This can be useful if you are traveling in Spain or Europe. * learning about aspects of traditional Spanish culture, such as flamenco. * learning the Spanish language quickly by being surrounded by Spanish speakers daily. * having easy access to the rest of Europe for sightseeing and traveling. * helping with business or professional development. If traveling to Spain is not possible, you can reap many of the same benefits by using a learn Spanish CD where people speak with a Castilian accent. Alternatively, you could learn to speak Spanish online.
