An advertisement for a series of Spanish instruction CDs from a 1995 issue of the Daily Express

Spanish is a Latin language which originated in the Castile region of Spain.[1] It is spoken natively by hundreds of millions of people throughout the world.[1]


In the summer of 1995, the Daily Express promoted an eight-disc set of instructional CDs, which promised to teach Spanish in one week with "no books" and "no writing."[2] The newspaper included a voucher in one issue that readers could use to pick up a free copy of Part Four of the set.[2] It also offered the complete series by post, which was valued at £70.[2]

An advertisement for a magic translator's services that appeared in the classified section of an issue of the Quibbler listed several languages available for translation, including the "Latin languages," which presumably included Spanish.[3]
