Spanish is the official language of Spain and 19 Latin American nations such as Argentina, Bolivia, Cuba, Mexico and Peru as the language was imported to the Americas with the early influence of the Spanish Empire. Spanish is closely related to the other West Iberian Romance languages like Portuguese. Spanish and Portuguese speakers can communicate and there is also high mutual intelligibility of the written Spanish and Portuguese language. There are many Spanish loanwords in English like ‘mosquito’, ‘plaza’ and ‘potato’.
Both languages are the official languages of the United Nations, the European Union and the World Trade Organization.
