Brief History of the Spanish Language:
Spanish or Castilian Spanish is one of the most important global languages. It is a member of the Ibero-Romance sub-family of the Romance language family. Like all Romance languages, Spanish developed from Vulgar Latin, the spoken Latin that was brought to the area by the Roman Empire. The Spanish Language spread along with the empire to the Americas, to the Spanish East Indies, which includes present-day Philippines and some parts of Africa. One area Spanish spread to was Mexico, which today has the largest Spanish-speaking population of any country.
The variety of Spanish spoken in Mexico varies somewhat from the variety of Spanish spoken in Spain, and that’s true or the other Spanish-speaking countries as well. The standard written language is basically the same everywhere, but the spoken language as some differences, especially in pronunciation and in vocabulary and common daily vocabulary. In Latin America, various native languages influence the different local varieties of Spanish. The varieties are often categorized into European Spanish and Latin American Spanish.
