Arrow Learning Spanish is popular these days!

I think learning Spanish is very popular these days, besides other languages, Spanish language is providing business and job opportunities to people. I am also a fond of learning Spanish, so I found Rocket Spanish on the internet after searching a lot. They provide online material to learn most of the languages, I think which is great.

I believe that the English is the same, today that language is very important for the business of the ambit labour and well just it could be used as a hobby too.

Spanish is the most commonly studied foreign language in the U.S., determined by the
number of students enrolled in foreign language classes in colleges and universities.
In 2006, over 822,000 students were taking Spanish courses, 10.3% more than in 2002. Arabic
is the tenth most popular foreign language, but enrollment increased 126.5% in just four years!

Language Fall 2006 enrollments % change from 2002

1. Spanish 822,985 10.3%
2. French 206,426 2.2
3. German 94,264 3.5
4. American Sign Language 78,829 29.7
5. Italian 78,368 22.6

I think the fact that there are so many people who speak Spanish worldwide as well as the relative ease of access to the language within the U.S. makes it appealing to students.

Tell your brother that Spanish has a lot of Latin vocabulary in it. Science is not as Latin orieted as he thinks. If the medical profession interests him, it is true that many terms are of Latin origin. Those terms are also Spanish terms.

Additionally, if the medical profession interests him, knowing Spanish
will be most helpful when it comes to treating Spanish-speaking patients.
Latin wont help there.

Yes as you have said.
The technical translation of English to Spanish in term of medicines or question about the healthy it should be more exactly way.

Wow! These are super interesting statistics! Would you please tell me where you got them, or if you have the same statistics for 2011? I'd love to see the trend over the past 5 years. Interesting!

Thanks,
Asia

The tendency to learn the language is necessary, because nowadays the language is support for all the people around of the world, therefore effectively the society is changing all the days, and the language so Spanish and English in the labour world those language are needed, so you can increase your month salary at least here in my city the tendency to learn English and that the people is ready at least in the English language for the oil sector is very important for everyone.

Therefore I'm agree with you with your commentary, already those numbers will changes in a short period, because they are statics for everyone.

Sincerely yours.
