Boulder Spanish Meetup! Message Board › Benefits Of Learning Spanish In Colorado
|A former member||
There are many benefits to learning a foreign language, especially Spanish, if you live in Colorado. Colorado is known to have a rich Hispanic culture that dates back to early North American explorations. The history behind the formation of this state tells stories of Hispanic explorers, Native American Tribes, and Mexican immigration. All over Colorado, and particularly in the southern part of the state, this rich Hispanic culture still exists and thrives today. From Mexican cantinas, restaurants and carnicerias, to salsa clubs and museums, people living in Colorado can participate in and learn all about our Hispanic culture. As of 2010 there were roughly 1,038,000 people of Hispanic and Latin descent living in Colorado. With statistics like this, it only makes sense that Spanish is the most commonly taught language in Colorado.
