Comparing the differences between the Spanish in Spain and the Spanish in Latin America is similar to comparing English between the U.S. and Britain. The differences are most pronounced in the accents, the colloquial expressions and slang phrases, and above all, in the tradition of the language which tends to vary greatly between the two regions.
Latin America is a vast region with many different Spanish dialects. A single variety of Spanish has yet to emerge as the standard in the Americas. Doorway To Mexico puts an emphasis on teaching Mexican Spanish, which because of it’s size and influence, is considered by many to be the benchmark for Latin American Spanish.
