Spanish Language and Culture

Spanish is a major language of international organizations such as the Organization of Ibero-American States; and of countries in the Americas, Europe, and Africa. Until 1973, it was the official language of the Philippines, where its impact still is seen in the vocabularies of such native Filipino languages as Tagalog and Cebuano. Contributions typically raise questions about the language's local dialects; regional variations; and worldwide achievements in business, entertainment, and literature.
