Spanish, also known as Castilian, is a Romance language originating from the Castile region in central Spain. Spanish is a part of the Ibero-Romance group of languages, which evolved from several dialects of Latin after the collapse of the Western Roman Empire in the fifth century. From its beginnings, Spanish vocabulary was influenced by its contact with Basque and by other related Ibero-Romance languages and later absorbed many Arabic words during the Muslim presence on the Iberian Peninsula. One thing to bear in mind, though Catalan and Basque are spoken within the borders of Spain, they are separate languages with their own distinct identities.

Spanish is the most widely understood language in the Western Hemisphere, with significant populations of native Spanish speakers from the tip of Patagonia to as far north as New York City. With 15% of the US workforce being Latino, Spanish is the most popular second language learned by native English speakers in the US.
