After Latin, Spanish has been mainly influenced by Arabic. As a part of the Romance languages, it shares many similarities with Italian and French. Due to the Spanish language being spoken across such a great number of countries, accents and words can vary quite drastically between them. However, all the variations of Spanish are more or less mutually intelligible.
Even though the English language proficiency in Spain has been growing, they are still amongst the lower part of the rankings in Europe. This means it’s important, if you are looking to enter this market, to be able to communicate in Spanish.
Considering how large the Spanish speaking market is, it's a great opportunity for businesses to reach a large group of consumers with the use of one language. In Europe, Spain has one of the biggest consumer markets and in the UK it’s the eighth largest export market. With the growing economies in Latin America, it is expected the opportunities within the Spanish speaking markets will only increase.
