Choosing the best phrases and words to start speaking in Spanish is not an easy task, but it is quite possible when you have spent so much time teaching the language.

So at Lingua Language Center we are encouraged to make this list to help English speakers to finish studying the language of Cervantes.

Precisely, a study carried out by the Cervantes Institute in 2018 showed that Spanish is the most studied language in the United States, with 8 million active students at that time.

But the number has continued to rise, and not just in the United States, but in most non-Spanish-speaking countries. Of course: only in English and French do they arouse more interest at a global level, the first for job opportunities and the second mainly for culture. So why do so many people seek to learn Spanish? The reason is a mixture of the two aforementioned causes: culture and opportunities.

The number of Spanish-speakers in the United States is already around 65 million, an astonishing figure judging by the 329.5 million inhabitants reported by the last 2020 census.

In any case, let’s go to what concerns us in this article: What are the best phrases and words to start speaking in Spanish? In other words, what is the first thing we should learn or what will be most useful to us.
