Think of the second most used language for international communication and you have Spanish! It’s the official language of 22 countries, and this should make you wonder about the number of places you’ll be able to travel to, and be happy to communicate in the local language. Exploring Latin America, while knowing what you’re getting into, is a truly extraordinary feeling.
Since Spanish is mostly phonetic, it’s easy to pick up and with the right tutoring and enthusiasm, you could reach new levels of the language in no time. This language also tops the list of non-English languages which would be “Languages of the Future” (as per a British Council report), surpassing even French.
As the number of Spanish speakers increases globally, so does the demand for skilled professionals. If you’re a job seeker, there’s a huge demand overseas, especially in the USA, for Spanish speakers in the media, nursing, management sectors. By 2050, half of the USA is expected to be able to speak Spanish. If you have set your goals (academic or professional) on American soil, Spanish is definitely the way to go.
