Castilian Spanish

Flamenco! Tapas! Don Quixote! Just like the region’s distinctive flavor of ham, Castilian Spanish – the official language of Spain – offers its own unique zest. Between the afternoon siestas and the late-night churros, castellano offers a glimpse into a world where old traditions and the modern world collide. Falling in love with the culture and the language of Spain is as easy as picking up the "Castilian lisp!"
