There are reasons for learning the Spanish language other than the projected future huge increase in the state's Latino population.
It is an easy language to learn. It will introduce one to the forms of construction common to the other romance languages, making it easier to learn French, for example. It will open the door to a wealth of Spanish-language literature.
It should not be surprising that learning Spanish will improve the learner's English usage. The diversity of expression will be revealed.
