While Spanish would be the by far the most common language, you might also hear Basque, Catalan, Valencian, or Galician. English and German are also widely spoken by those who… work in international trade or tourism.
The Moors influenced Spanish in something like the way that the Normans influenced English. In both cases, the ruling class of the country spoke a different language than the …ordinary people, imposing that language on them and gradually altering the vocabulary. The underlying grammatical structures of English and Spanish remained unaltered, while both saw an increase and change in the vocabularies.
Spanish is a language that, like many other European languages, is based on Latin. Many languages are derived from Latin, including French and Italian, but some are more close…ly related to Spanish than others. You might have heard people talk about "Castillian" Spanish, and that is the standard Spanish language. Due to the nature of Spain's history Castillian, from Castile, took over the other languages as the main Spanish language, but most of them still exist to some extent. Geographically those closest to Castile are the Asturian and Aragonese languages but languages like Portuguese and Galician are also very similar to Castilian Spanish. All of these languages are mutually intelligible which means that a fluent speaker of one has a very good chance of understanding another. This is also the case with Castilian and several southern forms of Italian. In terms of major languages Spanish and Portuguese have the most in common.

English, like many other languages, has roots in Latin. Latin in turn has several words from Greek. For example, "gymnasium" comes from Latin "gymnasium", itself a latinizatio…n of Greek "gymnasion". Also, loanwords from Greek (and Latin) are quite common, and some words have survived. Many English words are formed by Greek words, and Greek gods have named weekdays and astral objects, though many of these use their Roman names. But most important Roman gods were copies of the Greek, just renamed. Examples are Mercury (Hermes), Venus (Aphrodite), Mars (Ares), Saturn (Greek god of the sky before Zeus), Jupiter (Zeus), Neptune (Poseidon) and Pluto, plus Saturday, after Saturn. === Ahem English has its roots in Olde German, the influence of Latin stems mainly from the Norman French and they didn't arrive in any great number before 1066. The Romans were displaced by invasions from the Nordic countries (who created the kingdom of Danelaw - from which stems the Common Law tradition and democratic institutions), the Jutes from Jutland and the Angles and Saxons from what's now the Netherlands and Northern Germany - hence Anglo-Saxon. The influence of Latin from the Roman occupation is limited. Most legionnaires and their slaves didn't know Latin, they used their mother tongue and the lingua franca of their homeland. For example those recruited from the Eastern Mediterranean colonies used languages such as Aramaic and the lingua franca of that region, which was Greek. RP
The Spanish language grew out of Latin. It was substantially influenced by Arabic, and to a lesser extent by French. The Spanish spoken in America has also borrowed many words… for native American languages.
Answer these languages come from latin
The most obvious difference is that, in Argentina, people use a derivative of the plural verbal form of the second person referring to a singular person. For example: In Argen…tina "Sos preciosa" (saying "You are beautiful" to a girl) In Spain "Eres preciosa" (the same in singular form) Other differences have to do with vocabulary. Argentina "work" : laburar - Spain: trabajar Argentina "car": carro - Spain: coche
