Does President Obama’s 2nd Inauguration Have Anything To Do With Spanish?

(PRWEB) January 20, 2013

Some believe that part of President Obama’s win came after wooing the Spanish vote. Back in 2008, President Obama began to reach out to Hispanics as he said, campaigning to English speakers, “You need to make sure your child can speak Spanish,” and that, “we should have every child speaking more than one language.”

Next, in 2012, President Obama not only outspent Mitt Romney reaching out to Hispanic voters, he had more widely accepted policies on immigration. He also took the time to practice Spanish, and with a surprisingly good Spanish accent, campaigned directly to Hispanics.

It comes as no surprise that President Obama did so well among Hispanic voters and won a second term.

“We’re honored to have a President who puts such an emphasis on language learning and strives to bridge communication gaps among the citizens of our country and our world,” remarked Dave Clark, CEO of

In honor of President Obama’s 2nd inauguration and his commitment to learning languages, is releasing completely free language courses online the day after the U.S. Presidential Inauguration on Monday, January 21st.

    Good post. I learn something totally new and challenging on blogs I stumbleupon every day.
    It’s always useful to read through articles from other writers and practice something from other websites.

    Hello Jake,
    Cool article! Most of your observations are right here.! I would say that not only is practice and discipline an important factor in all of that, but also a reason for using the language. The more authentic the learning environment, the better Spanish learners (or learners of any language really) will connect to how they are using the language.

    He must have spoken other language he knows or he is just trying to impress Hispanics. Anyway, whatever he is up to, he brought this site to release a language-learning course for free.
