Happy Language Day!

¡Feliz Día del Idioma! What better way to celebrate than to learn some awesome facts about Spanish? From how many people currently speak the language, to projections for the year 2030, and complete with a little Spanish quiz, this article has it all. Plus, it’s in Spanish! Even better. Be sure to scroll down the to neat video, where you’ll learn things such as reconocer is a palindrome– it’s spelled the same forward and backward– and that ecuatorianos is an anagram of aeronauticos. Who knew!
