Teaching Spanish in primary school can have several advantages. First, Spanish is one of the most widely spoken languages in the world, with over 500 million speakers, making it valuable for communication and fostering cultural understanding. Additionally, it's the second most spoken language in the United States, so learning Spanish can be practical for many pupils in various regions. 

Moreover, Spanish is a phonetic language, which means it's generally pronounced as it's written, making it relatively easy for beginners to grasp compared to languages with more complex phonetic systems. Its grammar is also more straightforward than some other languages, which can make it less daunting for young learners.

From a cultural perspective, Spanish-speaking countries have rich histories, diverse traditions, and vibrant arts scenes, providing ample opportunities for our pupils to explore and appreciate different cultures.

Finally, learning Spanish at a young age can lay a strong foundation for future language learning. Once pupils grasp one language, they often find it easier to learn additional languages later in life.
