Just released! Please watch and comment on our latest videos on Spanish words here, you can also review our updated demo video on new techniques emerging to learn Spanish on YouTube.

After Chinese, Spanish is the second most widely spoken language in the world with 332 million speakers. Native Spanish speakers can be found across the globe including the Americas, Europe, Africa and even on some Pacific islands.

It is also the most commonly spoken second language in the world which is no surprise considering how many countries and cultures it's possible to experience using the language.

Even though today we see modern Spanish as being one of the most useful and successful languages in the world it was not always this way. As little as 600 years ago Spanish was merely a little dialect spoken by locals in a Castilian region on mainland Spain.

It was through the incredible thirst for conquest and exploration carried out by the Spain ish that the language once spoken just by a few spread throughout the world with such ferocity.

The Romance Languages Roots In Latin

It was during the third century that Latin first started to be used on the Spanish peninsula. It was at first not forced upon people but rather they choose to learn it because it made sense to do so under the circumstances of Roman rule.

What normally happens is that the local population becomes perfectly bilingual and we can still see many examples of this in the modern world today. The dialects formed very naturally as the locals in different towns started to apply their own particular characteristics to the language. It is now accepted that there were in fact several dialects of Spanish being spoken on the Spanish peninsula which we now refer to as Hispanic Latin.

¿Esta La Guerra Contra El Narcotráfico En México Afectando Al Turismo Y A La Venta De Paquetes Vacacionales En Cancún?

A pesar la guerra Mexicana contra el narcotráfico, los turistas Americanos prefieren visitar México como primera opción cuando de Vacacionar se trata. De acuerdo con un reporte de la oficina de turismo de ese país "La cantidad de turistas que arribaron a México durante el periodo comprendido entre enero a Agosto del año 2012 aumentó en un 6.1% con respecto al año 2011, 4.9% comparado con el año 2010 y 11.7% comparado con 2008".

Una de las ciudades favoritas para visitar por el turismo internacional es definitivamente Cancún, la predilecta de los spring breakers.

En meses recientes se han dado casos de violencia debida a los carteles de la droga en Cancún, el temor de que bajarán las ventas de paquetes vacacionales en Cancún se hizo latente, no obstante dado que el gobierno Mexicano respondió con prontitud en asegurar la ciudad, la afluencia de turistas a la Riviera Maya no se vio mermada.

De acuerdo a reportes de sitios web especializados en turismo internacional, la búsqueda de paquetes vacacionales en la Riviera Maya va en aumento, pareciera que no existe el temor a la Guerra contra el Narco o se piensa que esta batalla se pelea en el centro y norte de México y no afecta en lo mínimo la zona turística de la Riviera Maya.

Se tiene la percepción de que Cancún es seguro, así lo han manifestado turistas como Francisco Posada, residente de Texas quien recientemente visitó Cancún con su familia "Cada región de México es diferente. No puedes pintarlo todo con la misma brocha. En algunas regiones del norte de México los turistas deben tomar serias precauciones si quieren ir allí. Aquí en Cancún uno sólo se dedica a relajarse y pasar unas vacaciones inolvidables.
