Standard and specific language
À ALCyou can take fun and interactive lessons in Spanish based on the conversation.
Why Castilian? Because it's the basic language. The richness of the Spanish language is found in many countries with colors and cultures very different from each other.
Indeed, when in the fifteenth century, maritime adventures to the new world began, many sailors left the south of Spain These settlers brought their Andalusian dialect in their luggage as for example in Santo Domingo and Cuba. We can therefore speak without doubt about dialects with regard to intonation, pronunciation and some words or expressions. The dialects of Latin America demonstrate a difference in the use of pronouns used in everyday Spanish. The pronoun Spanish subject of the second person singular is "tú" (you) while in Argentina or Uruguay we use "your", while to call someone we will use as well "usted" in Spain that Latin America. Did you know? What time is the maximum autobús? (At what time does the next bus leave?) ¿Puede ayudarme, por favor? (Can you help me please?) ¿Quieres tomar algo? (Would you like something to drink?)
Spanish is the third most spoken language in the world, outdated by Chinese and English. In the Americas, it is the first most common language and, apart from Spain, Spanish is spoken in the Philippines, the United States and even in Africa. To conclude Spanish is spoken in Mexico, Colombia, Spain, Argentina, USA, Peru, Venezuela, Chile, Ecuador, Cuba and 34 other countries.
