Why do Venezuelans speak Spanish?
 Venezuela was explored by Amerigo Vespucci just before 1500. Vespucci was Italian. But he moved to Seville, and ended up using his mapmaking and navigational skills in service to the Spanish Crown.  Venezuela was the location of a successful, permanent settlement for the Spanish Crown, in 1522.  Nowadays, Venezuela is a highly urbanized city. So the different immigrant and native groups have Spanish in common.
