"Why do sentences in Spanish have the upside down “!” and “?” at the beginning?"

They put the punctuation at the beginning of the sentence so you know straight away what type of sentence it is. Unlike in English where you don’t realize until the end and sometimes you have to go back and reread the sentence after you figure out it’s a question.

I always thought that this would’ve been very helpful when in elementary school. I always had to read aloud and would demolish sentences because I didn’t yet know what tone to say them in, so it would all be read as a monotone sentence. Maybe students could read more expressively if we had this punctuation…
