Transcript of Spanish-Speaking Countries (created by Amy Westerman)

Spanish-Speaking Countries- 21 total!
1. España (Located in Europe)
-Spain is the original Spanish-speaking country. Before the Americas were "discovered" by Christopher Columbus in 1492, Spain was the only country that spoke Spanish in the world!

-Spanish conquistadores (conquerors) that explored and conquered this "new world" are the reason that there are now 20 other Spanish-speaking countries world-wide!
Ex: While the "new world" was full of natives with their own language
(Ex: Mayan) Spanish conquistadores claimed countries such as "Perú" for Spain,
which is why Perú's official language is now Spanish.
