Although there is no an exhaustive data comparing the number of students of the different languages in the world, it is estimated that, after English, Spanish is disputing with French and Mandarin the second place in the classification of languages more studied as a second language.
According to Instituto Cervantes (a public institution created in Spain in 1991 to promote universally the teaching, the study and the use of the Spanish), this language is the second one more talked around the world as a native language after the Mandarin. In 2016 more than 472 million people speak Spanish a native language, adding the apprentices the number grows to almost 567 million people. At the present, there are 21 million who are learning Spanish as a foreign language. These learners come from 106 countries where China is included with an approximated number of 31.154 students of Spanish language distributed in learners of primary, secondary and professional formation with 8.874, university students 22.280, and Cervantes Institute Centers with an estimation of 2.875 students.
