Enjoy while you learn Spanish language
To learn a new language is for sure a good idea but learning Spanish may be one of the best decisions you can make for your future. There are over 400 million Spanish speakers world-wide and right now 21 million students are learning it. In the United States there are more than 33 million Spanish speakers making Hispanics the largest minority in the USA.
Why is it important to learn Spanish? Not only will you be able to communicate with Spanish speakers on a day to day basis but also it can be extremely advantageous in business, with Latin American countries as our most important trading partners. Being able to speak Spanish greatly enhances your resume. If you are bilingual, you are more competitive in the workplace. You can travel to a Spanish-speaking country to study a Master’s Degree and really get to know the culture during your stay.
There are many universities, colleges, high schools and other organizations that offer a variety of study abroad programs and exchanges. You may be required to have a year or a semester of language study in order to participate. Even if a study abroad program does not require prior knowledge of Spanish, you will be at a great advantage when you study abroad if you have studied the language before arriving in the country. It will make it easier to make friends, shop for groceries and clothes, eat in restaurants and do many other essential things to help you enjoy your experience while abroad.
Have you ever heard the saying, “One language sets you in a corridor for life. Two languages opens every door along the way”? In a globalized world, opportunities in foreign countries are more frequent. Do you want to study abroad, visit Spain or work in company based in Europe? You will need Spanish to increase your chance to achieve this goal. There are 21 countries in the world that have Spanish as an official language. You may even earn a larger salary because of your Spanish knowledge! Lastly, but no less important, a good grasp of the Spanish language will make your travel experiences in beautiful Spain and Latin America much easier.
It may sound crazy but learning Spanish actually helps your English. English and other European languages have many words of Latin origin. Spanish, one of the Romance languages, comes from Latin. Since Latin roots are the basis of so many English words, especially scientific and technical words, knowledge of Spanish will help English speakers and, to an extent, other European language speakers, not only to expand their vocabulary, but also to better understand the words of their own language.
It is no secret that learning a language, in general, is difficult but you can make learning Spanish language easier. While language learning takes a lot of practice, hard work and dedication, the learning process actually develops a number of mental and social skills. Being immersed in the Spanish culture, living in Spain for example, makes your learning process easier, natural and fun. Step by step you will start to recognize signs on the streets, understand news on TV and stop to say “No, hablo Español” when locals approach you.
Living in Spain, you will meet many new people and make friendships that will last a lifetime. To study Spanish in Spain opens up a whole new world of people that you can talk to that you may never have been able to communicate with before. This can give you many exciting opportunities to learn about other people’s cultures and form lifelong friendships.
