If you’ve got some spare time on your hands, and let’s face it, many of us have during the Covid-19 pandemic, you may be considering learning a new language or brushing up on your language skills. If this sounds like it applies to you, read on, as we give you our list of the top five reasons you should learn Spanish in 2021:
1. Broaden your horizons and gain access to 450 million Spanish speakers!
Spanish is a glorious language, filled with energy, rich diversity, and expressiveness. If you want to learn Spanish to spring open the doors to communicate with any of the 450 million Spanish speakers across the globe in their native tongue for the sheer joy and fun of making foreign travel more exciting and rewarding, come join us to learn Spanish at FreeDa Language Space, Barcelona’s flagship Spanish language school. As you make new friendships, learn a new language, practice it daily with fellow students and native language speakers, and enjoy the feast of delights that Barcelona has to offer, our dedicated team of teaching gurus guarantee you will have the time of your life! Of all the languages you could choose, Spanish is arguably the most useful in 2021.
2. Improve your Employment Prospects
Learning Spanish will improve your job prospects. This is not an empty statement of belief, it is a fact, pure and simple. In the global marketplace in which the world of business exists today, being able to speak Spanish won’t just look good on your CV, speaking Spanish will greatly improve your job prospects and overall employability. In the dire job climate in which we find ourselves in 2021, employers globally are desperate for staff who are able to converse in Spanish, especially in the area of international trade. Forbes magazine estimates that the Latin American market alone has a purchasing power in excess of $1.5 trillion, making Spanish speakers more sought after than ever before by international businesses and corporations.
3. Live and Work Abroad
Learning Spanish in 2021 will give you a great opportunity to live and work abroad. If Spanish is not your native tongue, but you want to live in Spain or any of the 20 countries world-wide where Spanish is the official language, you are going to really need to speak Spanish, and there’s truly no language school in Spain better able to help you achieve this goal than FreeDa Language Space. We specialise in helping non-EU citizens with aspects such as Spanish language travel visa applications, that enable our students to gain entry to Spain, and to live and learn Spanish in Barcelona.
4. Open up a new world of entertainment
Many of the best movies and TV shows are made in the Spanish language. For example: Guillermo Del Torro’s 2006 masterpiece Pan’s Labyrynth, El Mariachi trilogy, The Motorcycle Diaries, Roma, The Shape of Water etc. And on TV, addictive shows such as El Casa de Papel (the most watched TV series in the history of Netflix) Puerta 7, Bala Loca, Frontera Verde and many, many more besides, all available to watch on Netflix. In a later post, we’ll explain how and why watching films and TV shows in Spanish can help you learn Spanish. But that will have to wait for another time! Add to movies and TV the great impact that Spanish literature has had on the world. Imagine being able to read Gabriel Garcia Marquez One Hundred Years of Solitude and Love in the Time of Cholera, and other classics including Don Quijote, Ficcione, The Alchemist etc in the language in which they’re written! So much is lost in translation. Just imagine your sense of accomplishment, as a non-native Spanish speaker, being able to read fluently in Spanish!
5. Learning Spanish can change your life
Imagine for a moment, you’re living the dream in Barcelona, immersing yourself in the Spanish language while studying at FreeDa Language Space. As your Spanish learning progresses and your skills improve, your self-confidence will grow immeasurably. Your motivation will grow exponentially as the more you learn, the more you will want to learn. Nobody is going to expect you to pick up perfect Spanish from the get-go. But with patience and hard work, you will grow not just as a speaker of Spanish but as a person too. Your confidence when meeting native Spanish speakers, and classmates at FreeDa Language Space will help you make new friendships that will last a lifetime due to the many experiences you will share together!
