In my library there is a shelf full of dictionaries. My relationship with them is very particular: I consult them, but never before writing, but after having done it. And the funny thing is that we almost always coincide.
A language is not defined only by the number of speakers, but also by the aspects of reality that it transmits. If English occupies the first place in the field of scientific-technical research and business, Spanish plays an important role as a language of culture. Spanish is considered this way thanks to the originality of Hispanic literature, both that of Latin America and that of Spain.
Spanish is a sonorous language like gold. So says the Royal Spanish Academy, and it is true. If English is studied because it is practical, Spanish is studied because it is beautiful. We hear it in love songs and on South American soap operas. But it is also the language of Cervantes and Lope, of Unamuno and Lorca.
