WHY LEARN SPANISH?
Why learn Spanish? First of all, because more than 350,000,000 people speak Spanish and the Spanish language is the second business language world-wide!.
Businesses are investing heavily in the Spanish and Latin American markets so, in almost any international career, you will not only need to speak Spanish but also know the different cultures to be successful. In the past, "studying Spanish" was believed to be a convenient way to open doors; now, knowing Spanish and the Latinamerican social and business culture are a necessity.
How can I best learn Spanish
How can I best learn Spanish? Our students tell us "there is a difference between studying and learning Spanish". Learning another language is more than memorizing vocabulary and grammar. "Many things you can't learn in class or from a book. Being there where the language is spoken, that's is key! Experience is the real teacher". Through our communicative Spanish methods and technique, you speed up comprehension and through use because: you are living the Spanish language.
You should also consider these reasons:
You have temporarily left job, family, school responsabilitie's aside... You won't be distracted and can focus on learning the Spanish language.
Everything around you will contribute to learning Spanish. Catching a bus, ordering a meal... You will have a 24-hour learning and immersion environment.
All your interests can be included... whether it's food, art, social contacts, history, beaches, outdoor activities or something else… we offer the Spanish program that will allow you to pursue those interests while you learn Spanish.
Compared to the costs of many home-country courses or university tuition, your study abroad immersion program in Latin America can cost less... Even when airfare, lodging and meals are taken into account.
Too, considering your career goals, you should know that many advanced degree programs and some of your future potential employers require foreign (Spanish!) languages and international exposure or experience.
