Why learn Spanish?

I’ve been studying the Spanish language for sometime now. There are many reasons for that. I am aiming to learn more languages in the future. Being multilingual (Arabic, English & now Spanish) has been an eye opener towards cultures and meeting people from around the world.
Spanish is the fourth most commonly spoken language in the world (after English, Chinese and Hindustani), and according to some counts it has more native speakers than English does. It is an official language on four continents and is of historical importance elsewhere.
I believe learning Spanish can give you a head start in learning the other Latin-based languages such as French and Italian. And it will even help you learn Russian and German, since they too have Indo-European roots and have some characteristics that are present in Spanish but not English. Furthermore, learning Spanish has even helped understand some Japanese & can even help with any other non-Indo-European language, since intensively learning the structure of a language can give you a reference point for learning others.
Spanish is one of the easiest foreign languages to learn. Much of its vocabulary is similar to English’s, and written Spanish is almost completely phonetic: Look at almost any Spanish word and you can tell how it is pronounced. And while mastering the grammar of Spanish can be a challenge, basic grammar is straightforward enough that you can have meaningful communication after only a few lessons.

El Tepozteco

El Tepozteco is an Aztec archaeological site in the Mexican state of Morelos. The temple (or pyramid) overlooks the city of Tepoztlan, a town located south of Mexico City. A 2km hike to Tepozteco is probably one of the most rewarding experiences you will have on your journey in Mexico. The climb is steep and fairly strenuous, especially toward the end, although it is perfectly doable in a few hours and is not dangerous.
