Spanish languages facts you need to know
What is the Spanish language called?
Spanish is the official language of Spain. It is sometimes referred to as Español, Castellano, or Castilian Spanish.
But there are numerous other dialects and variants of Spanish spoken both within Spain itself and in the many other parts of the world where the language is spoken, particularly the Americas.
Where is Spanish spoken?
Spanish is spoken globally by around 560 million people. Somewhere around 460 million of these are native speakers, meaning Spanish is the language with the second largest number of native speakers in the world. Only Mandarin has more.
It is the official language in 20 countries. Those are Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Equatorial Guinea, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Spain, Uruguay, and Venezuela. It is also one of the official languages of the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico.
On top of this, Spanish is an official language of the European Union, the African Union, the Organisation of American States, the Union of South American Nations, the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States, and one of the six official languages of the United Nations.
What are the 5 languages spoken in Spain?
99% of Spanish people speak Spanish as their first or second language. But there are four other languages spoken in Spain by sizeable portions of the population, large enough to have their own notable media presence:
- 8% of Spanish households speak Catalan, co-official language in the Catalonia region of Spain, in the Balearic Islands, and recognised elsewhere.
- 4% speak Valencian, a variety of Catalan that is a co-official language in the Valencian community, though not universally used.
- 3% speak Galician, co-official language in the region of Galicia and recognised elsewhere nearby.
- 1% speak Basque, a unique non-Romance and non-Indo-European language that is co-official in the Basque Country and northern Navarre.
It’s worth noting that while these are the five most-spoken languages in Spain, there are others. These include Aragonese, Asturian, Caló, Extremaduran, and Fala.
What is the difference between Castellano and Spanish?
Historically, Castellano or Castilian Spanish – sometimes called Peninsular Spanish – is the variety of Spanish spoken in Northern and Central Spain.
In modern times, Castellano usually refers to the Spanish spoken in these parts of Spain as opposed to the types of Spanish spoken in Latin America. Latin American Spanish often features different pronunciation, such as pronouncing “ce” or “ci” sounds as an “s” rather than the “th” they sometimes become in Castilian Spanish.
That said, the Spanish dialect spoken in many South American countries is essentially Castellano. There are also several regional dialect differences within Spain itself, such as Andalusian and Canarian.
