With over 450 million native speakers across the globe, it’s no wonder so many people are keen to add Spanish to their linguistic toolkit.
Spanish is the official language in twenty countries, which makes learning the language a one-way ticket to a lifetime of adventure for Kiwis who love to travel. Knowing key words and phrases of the local language is an important element of any authentic travel experience, and it allows you to truly immerse yourself in the local culture.
But before even stepping foot on a plane, learning a new language broadens your horizons by exposing you to new cultures, customs, history and literature. It’s also widely accepted that learning a new language sharpens mental skills and helps you better understand your first language.
Aside from opening doors to new experiences and knowledge, language courses also look great on resumés and often give job-hunters a competitive edge. Not only does it show your employer that you’re a lifelong learner, being able to speak an additional language can have many practical applications in the business world, particularly if you’re joining a company with international clients.
By learning a globally widespread language like Spanish you are saying ¡hola! to new job opportunities. So what’s stopping you? We know, we know…time!
