With over 437 million people around the world speaking Spanish, it only makes sense that more and more people are choosing it as a new language to learn. Many decide to learn Spanish because of travel or work in one of the twenty countries where Spanish is the official language. It’s also popular in our everyday lives through music, television shows, and movies.
Regardless of your reason, many wonder if they can take advantage of the time they spend driving to accomplish their goal. In the United States, for instance, Americans spend approximately 18 days per year in their car. That’s an average of over 8 hours per week!
While listening to music, radio talk shows, and podcasts, are also popular, it’s not a surprise that there are those who consider utilizing that time for the purpose of learning Spanish .
