Spanish for
Law Enforcement
History of Spanish - The language known today as
Spanish is derived from a dialect of spoken Latin
that evolved in the north-central part of the Iberian
Peninsula after the fall of the Western Roman
Empire in the fifth century. A written standard was
developed in the cities of Toledo (13th to 16th
centuries) and Madrid (from the 1560s). Over the
past 1,000 years, the language expanded south to
the Mediterranean Sea, and was later transferred to
the Spanish colonial empire, most notably to the
Americas. Today it is the official language of 21
countries and of numerous international
organizations. It is also one of the six official
languages of the United Nations.
