Why do we have separate courses for Mexican Spanish and Spanish from Spain?

How Spanish Differs From Spain to Central and South America

So you want to learn Spanish? That’s a good move! There are over 500 million Native Spanish speakers worldwide. Before you start, it’s important to choose which dialect you’re going to learn.  With Drops, you can learn Mexican Spanish or Castilian (Spanish from Spain).

If you’re based in the US or Canada, or tend to do more business and travel in that region, we recommend you get started with our Mexican Spanish course. Although vocabulary and usage varies across Central and South America, Mexican Spanish tends to be more recognizable than Castilian for people from Latin America.

Spanish is a very beautiful language to learn, but it’s also a very useful language to learn! Learning Mexican Spanish in America is a booster for your career and social life, especially now that the US has more Spanish speakers than Spain.

If you’re based in or closer to the European continent, you’re more likely to be exposed to Castilian. You can learn about pronunciation and vocabulary specific to Castilian with Drops. Since Spain is one of the most popular tourism destinations in Europe, you can benefit from the practical knowledge in our Travel Courses and let Drops be your trusty travel guide.

Regardless of the dialect you choose, learning Spanish is sure to open up a world of rich cultural experiences, including delicious food and spirited music.
