Simply put, Spanish is a great language. It can be used to communicate with hundreds of millions of people around the world, both as a first and second language. In fact, research has shown that over 20 million people are studying Spanish as a second...

Learning another language abroad is one of the best things you can do for yourself. To be honest, the place or the language is far less important than the act of going abroad and learning to speak like the locals. Whether you’re learning Icelandic in...
