The Story of Spanish by Nadeau and Barlow

story of spanish cover.jpgThe Spanish language is the world's second most spoken language. It's the official language of 21 countries, and the unofficial second language of the U.S.  But it's neither of the offical languages of Jean-Benoit Nadeau and Julie Barlow.

They're the co-authors of a new book - a "biography" of the language - called The Story of Spanish.

Jean-Benoit Nadeau and Julie Barlow are partners in life, as well as in languages.

Julie is originally from Ontario, and Jean-Benoit is from Sherbrooke. Together, they've written the best-selling book Sixty Million Frenchmen Can't Be Wrong,
followed by The Story of French. Now they turn their attention to the language of Cervantes.

Jean-Benoit Nadeau and Julie Barlow join Sonalie Karnick to tell us a bit of that story.
