Traveling abroad, and taking a language course at an accredited school, is quite possibly the most dynamic form of language learning there is. Language schools are designed to powerfully increase learning skills and merge seamlessly with the day to day immersion of actually living within that country.
But did you know that adding Spanish to your skill set can actually boost your career? Speaking Spanish will improve an employee’s standing within any company. Whether you are an accountant, hotel worker, CEO or tradesperson, a broadening of your career awaits you.
This is particularly the case where there are many Spanish speaking people in the workplace, or the business does overseas trade with Spanish language nations. Understanding Spanish will take away any communication barriers, making the work and life balance a lot more harmonious in the office.
Think how well you could be able to communicate with co-workers, customers and managers on that much deeper level. Even if your Spanish language skills are not up to fluency level, Spanish speaking co-workers will be only too happy to help you practice and will show a deep satisfaction that you are at least trying.
Knowing the Spanish language will help you to engage with Spanish-speaking customers. This will lead to better reviews for your business, as the client will surely feedback with the knowledge that you made the effort to communicate in their language.
Imagine staying with a host family in Costa Rica, Argentina or Mexico and attending a language school at the same period you are staying overseas? Spanish is used widely across the world – particularly in the Americas. There are a multitude of jobs and career paths you can take, but knowing how to communicate in Spanish is a huge advantage for most employers.
Even if you own your own business and want to tap into the markets of the United States, China, Europe, South America, etc., learning Spanish opens up a huge new client base.
There are several ways you can help yourself when learning the Spanish language. You should start by listening a lot. If you go abroad to an accredited language school and stay with a host family, there will be little choice but to listen.
Listening is regarded as the first major step in language learning. Multi linguist, Steve Kaufmann, known to have been proficient in 17 languages, always listens when he jogs, vacuums, drives or rests. He usually spends around an hour a day doing just that: listening.
