The lowdown on Spanish

In this video, Paul gives a great overview of Spanish including:

  • its history
  • where it is spoken (global distribution)
  • background on the writing system
  • what other languages have influenced it
  • what regional Spanish varieties exist
  • very much more

Paul includes example samples of the Spanish language to illustrate the main points of how the language works - super helpful for folks just getting started and interesting in general for language geeks like me.
