Spanish Culture

Spanish is spoken in many different countries. It is important to learn Spanish culture, along with the Spanish language. Culture helps you understand the language and the language helps you understand the culture. Besides, it if fun and interesting to learn and hopefully experience Spanish culture. For kids, it helps teach tolerance and makes children more flexible and open-minded.
