1 Español I Examen del Medio Semestre 1. In this half of the course, you have learned about some of the Spanish speaking countries. Briefly describe these areas and explain anything that we have learned that historically explains why these lands are Spanish speaking. (5 points) Spanish language originated from the common Latin, it evolved to spoken Spanish around 1200 AD. There are more than 20 countries that their official language is Spanish, most of them in Central America (10) and South America (11) and off course Spain! Also, in many countries, Spanish used on day-to-day basis. It is estimated that around 10% of the people in the world speak Spanish. The reason that the people in these countries speaks Spanish, starts with Columbus' voyage in 1492, when Spain tried to expand the land into other parts of the world. The Spanish conquerors repressed the local culture in these countries, and introduced the Spanish language as an official language. Even though the natives’ languages remain spoken, the Spanish become the official language.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
