There are tons of reasons why we study new languages. Whether it is because we genuinely like it and enjoy it, or because we need it for a new job, connect with family and relatives or to travel around. Learning to speak another language is a great way to open our minds with new knowledge while also increasing our IQ, which is amazing!. One of the most popular and important languages nowadays is Spanish, so it’s safe to say that speaking it is a huge plus! Why learn Spanish? Here are six reasons to convince you!
Access to an amazing culture and people!
Learning about other cultures makes you grow and understand the world better, it helps you understand life experiences and perspectives that are different from your own, and maybe adopt or incorporate some new ones in your life. It’s no secret that Spanish speaking countries have an amazing and interesting culture worth exploring and experiencing. Spanish speakers are also among the most heartwarming, friendly, and happy people you’ll ever come across. So, whether it is by traveling or from the comfort of your sofa, knowing Spanish will give you access to a widely diverse culture in the form of books, series, movies, music, people, and much more! There’s nothing that Spanish speakers enjoy more than proudly sharing their culture with the world, so now, more than ever, take advantage of it!
Access to over 20 countries
Spanish is a super useful language for leisure and/or professional purposes. It’s currently spoken by more than 500 million people in the world (with the number growing every second) and is the fourth most spoken language in the world including native and non-native speakers. Learning Spanish will give you access to over twenty countries across four continents that have it as their official language, as well as countries like the United States that has more than 33 million Spanish speakers. By having access to all these nations (each with their own cool accent and expressions), you’ll be able to explore amazing cultures and have remarkable and unique experiences.
Increase your job or volunteering opportunities – Improve your CV
In the past years, Spanish has become more globalized and it has greatly increased its importance in the business and professional world; knowing Spanish will instantly give you access to thousands of job and volunteering opportunities as well as enhancing your CV for future possibilities. You’ll not only be a more competitive person in your workplace and within a group, but also more integral; you’ll be able to travel for professional reasons and communicate effectively with employees, employers, locals, and most importantly, customers. Spanish is definitely a no brainer for international business and professional opportunities as Latin American economies are a real area of growth for many companies and industries, so why not add this skill to your repertoire!
Get more from your holidays/vacations and enhance your travel experiences
Another amazing reason for learning Spanish! Traveling and language open a whole new world because you are not only learning words and grammar, you have your independence but are also grasping a new culture that comes with it. With just this language, you can travel to over 20 countries and have the experience of a lifetime! Knowing Spanish will boost your travels and will give you access to tons of spectacular and interesting places. All Latin American countries and Spain host some of the best natural and man-made wonders of the world; and yes, of course, you can visit all if you don’t know Spanish, but if you do, it will definitely enhance your experience and you’ll be able to go to more places, understand the culture better, interact with locals easier and open up a world of possibilities for yourself!
Access to commerce
Most Latin American countries, like Mexico, Colombia, or Chile, are now considered a growing, unstoppable economic force with a crucial part in international commerce. So, in order to establish good relationships with potential trade partners, suppliers, and attract even more customers, users, and business opportunities, knowing Spanish is a direct way to achieve it all even more! In the last years, many American and Chinese corporations have invested and established in these countries because they know that the Spanish-speaking market is growing exponentially every day and this means more commerce.
