Not to be confused with Latin American Spanish, European Spanish, also known as Castilian, has its historical roots in the northern parts of the Iberian Peninsula. Over the centuries it has flourished and spread to the south and west to become the main language of what is now Spain.

Through the pens of iconic authors such as Miguel de Cervantes in his famous ‘Don Quixote de la Mancha’, it is the language that has enchanted generations.

As the official language of Spain, Castilian has a rich variety of dialects and accents. However, it is Northern Castilian, or ‘standard’ Spanish, that has gained the most recognition on the world stage.

The Royal Spanish Academy (RAE), located in the heart of Madrid, is the ultimate authority on the regulation and standardisation of Spanish for those interested in learning the language.

It offers speakers and learners a window to a world rich in tradition and literature, a language that resonates with history, culture and passion.
