Is Irish an Endangered Language?

Tourist season was in full swing when I arrived in Ireland in late June for a six-week study-abroad program through New York University, where I’m working on my master’s degree in Irish Studies. International tourists clustered outside the Trinity College gates while language schools passed out advertisements on Dame Street—for English classes. I met a few students relaxing on the Trinity lawn, and we joked about my interest in the Irish language, since I’m neither Irish nor of Irish heritage. They asked me how I was. Conas atá tú? I said I was fine. Tá mé go maith. Then the…

Rosetta Stone Spanish – The Spanish Language

Spanish is a romance language. But you don’t need to be a Don Juan (or Doña Juanita) to speak it. This rhythmic language packs a poetic punch. And, harmonics aside, it’s becoming ubiquitous stateside. But Spanish is useful abroad, too. All in all, nearly 500 million people speak it. So really, it’s a numbers game—speak Spanish, and you open up numerous chances for connection. Some of the most renowned cities in the U.S. are buzzing with Spanish—Eastern and Southern Los Angeles; The Mission District, San Francisco; and Miami Beach, Florida—just to name a few.
