There are thousands of languages and regional dialects still in existence. English is one of the most widely spoken languages, with close to one billion native and non-native speakers across the globe. And you probably have guessed that Spanish is a hot commodity; the Castilian tongue has half a billion speakers, native and non-native, many thanks to the legacy of the Spanish Empire which spread the easy-to-learn language throughout the four corners of the Earth.
