In the Americas, the Spanish-speaking population of the United States is second only to México, and is slightly above Argentina and Colombia. It is forecast that in the next five years, Spanish-speaking populations will continue their phenomenal growth, resulting in ever increasing demands on businesses and institutions to provide dual-language services. Fluency in Spanish is rapidly becoming a necessary job skill in many sectors, and this trend will only continue to grow. Study of Spanish helps introduce learners to not only the culture of Spain, but of the Americas and a wide population of the United States.
