Learn Spanish for free with Livemocha

¡Hola! With around 329 million native speakers, Spanish ranks as the world’s number two language in terms of how many people speak it as their first language. It is slightly ahead of English (328 million) but still far behind Chinese (1.2 billion). One of the Romance languages, and thus a descendant from Latin of the Roman Empire, today Spanish has far more speakers in South and Central America than in Europe, having been brought to the New World by Spanish colonization. Despite small differences in vocabulary, grammar and pronunciation between the Spanish of Spain and the Spanish of the Americas, the differences are not so great as to prevent easy communication.

Livemocha courses teach Mexican Spanish, though you can learn other dialects from members of the Livemocha community.
