Learning to speak Spanish is one of the easier and more enjoyable prospects for anyone wishing to learn more about Hispanic Culture. Learning the Spanish language is one of the most rewarding and pleasurable experiences one can undertake. There are a variety of ways one can go about learning to speak Spanish. Some of the various ways are attending traditional classes, audio tapes and for some as simple as watching Spanish television. The key to success is to get out in the community and begin using your new skills as quickly and as often as possible. Unlike the expectations and negativity that are presented to those who come to the United States from a foreign country speaking a foreign tongue, the Hispanic community is warm, welcoming and openly supportive to those who are trying to learn to speak Spanish. Learning to speak Spanish opens a whole new world to those interested in understanding Hispanic Culture. Once you grasp the basic language phonetics, the language then becomes easy to master the language. Reading and writing are also easily mastered while learning to speak the Spanish language. Once you are comfortable using the language you will begin to move in the Spanish community in a whole new and more comfortable way then previously. You will be opened to new experiences and get an in-site into the way in which Hispanics communicate amongst each other. Learning to speak Spanish brings with it the benefits of carrying the culture with it. It is known and accepted by many from the homelands that to loose the language you loose a great part of your culture. There are certain ways to express ones self and a line of thinking that is solely transferred in the learning of the language. Many are those who have found a love for the Hispanic Culture to only have it deepen upon the acquiring of the Spanish language. They are exposed to the entertainment that Hispanics enjoy, as well as understanding the lyrics in the songs without the interpretations that follow with translations as well as into the everyday way in which Hispanics communicate within their community. Using a translator to communicate with those who are native speakers of the Spanish language places a barrier between the writer and the reader leaving some of the more delicate intricacies of communication lost in the insensitive and literal digital transcribing of the thoughts and ideas. To master the language of another language strengthens the respect and understanding towards another. It is a sign of respect and acceptance as well as a way in showing the appreciation for that persons heritage. It empowers the one who learns to speak Spanish to receive higher wages, opens them to new experiences, broadens to pool of potential friends as well as breaks down unnecessary borders that only exist due to lazy and arrogant beliefs that those skills undesirable. On the other side of the coin, the Hispanic population which moved to the United States as well as Canada have been forced to learn to speak English to progress in their new homeland. Due to this it has given the Hispanic population the power of commerce that solely English speakers do not posses. As customer, like English speakers, they can demand to receive service in the mother tongue and more often than not do just that. Only those who have embraced the idea that we do indeed live in a plural society and have embraced not only learning Spanish but English as well have been allotted the freedom to move about freely in the market and have been compensated monetarily for their openness. A society where two languages coexist is the wave of the future and with an ever growing Hispanic population, learning the Spanish language is not only an intelligent economic choice but one that also opens you to a new and wondrous world of plurality in which you are free to enrich your life as well as those around you.
