Beyond any doubt Spanish is one of the most useful languages one can learn. In the Western hemisphere Spanish is spoken practically everywhere south of the US - Mexican border, except Brazil and a few tiny countries in the Caribbean. This is, of course, in addition to Spain in Europe and several countries in Africa such as, surprisingly, Equatorial Guinea. According to recent estimations the number of Spanish speakers in the world has reached an impressive 500 million and keeps on rising!
In the USA alone the Spanish-speaking population numbers 55 million people (over 17% of the total) and is one of the fastest growing ethnic groups in the country. This makes the USA the country with the second largest Spanish-speaking population in the world after only Mexico and ahead of Spain! Right now Spanish is the official language of 22 countries in the world. If you speak at least some Spanish you should feel comfortable anywhere south of Rio Grande. Even Brazil should not be much of a problem, since Spanish and Portuguese (spoken in Brazil) are closely related languages. Spanish is a mandatory foreign language in all Brazilian schools, so you should be able to get by with Spanish in Brazil pretty well. This explains why Spanish is the second most studied foreign language in the world (after English).
The attraction of Spanish is not just in its importance as a communication tool. Apart from practical considerations, Spanish is a beautiful language, ideal for music, songs, and poetry. Hispanic writers and poets won the prestigious Nobel prize in literature eleven times! The number of Spanish songs that became international hits is hard to count, it would be enough so mention just a few, such as "Bésame mucho, Oye como va, or Guantanamera.
In the experience of many learners of Spanish, this is not a difficult language to learn compared to many others. Spanish shares a good deal of vocabulary with English, so this part is relatively easy. Of course, some of the similarities are, in fact, misleading, and can result in pretty confusing situations. For instance, quite a few people fall into a trap when trying to render the English phrase “I am embarrassed” with the Spanish similar sounding “Yo estoy embarazado/embarazada,” which in reality means “I am pregnant.” Grammar may be a bit of a challenge, but, luckily, it is fairly straightforward and logical.
