There are so many reasons to learn Spanish, but here is my top 10. Please let me know if you agree.
1. Be part of a wider community
Communicate with 350 million native Spanish speakers in 25 different countries
2. It's easy
Well, it is easier than some other languages, and research shows that learning any foreign language is easier if you start before the age of six or seven.
3. Improve knowledge of your own language
Spanish shares the same latin origins as English so Spanish learners often increase their recognition of English words.
4. Get more out of your holiday
Being able to speak Spanish will give you more independence on your holiday in Spanish speaking destinations.
5. Make friends quickly
If you can order a coffee or buy your groceries in Spanish you are sure to strike up conversation with the locals.
6. Increases your job prospects
Knowledge of one or more foreign language provides an additional skill on your CV.
7. Boost the economy
The British Council has said that the UK has an alarming shortage of people who are able to speak languages including Spanish which are considered key to improving the economy in the future.
8. Cultural enrichment
Watch some Almodóvar films without subtitles or read some Lorca is the original language.
9. Have fun!
Join an existing group or get your friends or colleagues together for Spanish classes. Learn about life and customs in Spain and start planning your trip to the running of the bulls in Pamplona or the Fería de los Tomates in León!
10. It makes perfecto sense
Perfecto Spanish can provide the classes to suit your or your children. The younger audience benefit from the award winning La Jolie Ronde programme and a wide and interesting range of resources are used to ensure that even grown ups have fun learning Spanish.
