Spanish (Español)

Spanish is the language of Spain. Since Spanish people conquered (after discovering it) a vast portion of the New World and further colonized other distant lands (like Philippines), it is also the national language of another 30 countries and is thus one of the most important languages of the planet, the second most spoken in the world by the number of native people (close to half a billion natives, 6% of the world population) [1] and fourth in terms if including so-called L2 (second-language) speakers [2].

It is the mother tongue of Elena and Julia, who also speaks French (but not so well) and will be exposed to English in late 2019.
