About This Quiz

The United Nations has identified six official languages: one of them is English, and another is Spanish. There are also other languages commonly spoken around the world. In fact there are over 6,500 languages, but English and Spanish remain globally important.

And why is that? First, there's the history of colonization. Most modern-day cultural formations were borne out of violent colonial takeover. Nations including England and Spain were staunch believers in world takeover and settlement. They took over the Americas and brought their languages with them. Many indigenous people were forced to learn Spanish. The language of the colonizers has carried over until today.

We hear Spanish around the world, and in some parts where you least expect it, too. Do you know which country in Africa speaks Spanish? Can you name all of the Caribbean Islands where Spanish is heard?

Take a good guess and see if you can name these countries that speak Spanish, whether officially or unofficially.  Buena suerte!
