Spanish is the most widely spoken Romance language, boasting more than 410 million speakers in the world today, and is among the top five languages. Spanish is the official language of Spain and 20 countries in South and Central America. It is also spoken by a great number of people in the United States (28 million; 11 percent of its population). In fact, the United States is now the fifth largest Spanish-speaking country in the world and by the year 2010, one in every four U.S. citizens will be Hispanic. Spanish is one of the United Nations' five official languages. Within the Western Canadian context, Spanish-speaking people will soon be in greater demand as Canada develops its business contacts with more Pacific Rim countries.
