Having read the information in the previous section, it becomes clear just how important Spanish is in today’s world. But for those who are still not convinced as to why they should study Spanish, we offer a few more reasons:
Spanish is a language that is becoming increasingly more popular. This is why the number of speakers has been on the rise in recent years.
Proficiency in a second language can be an extremely valuable asset for both companies and employees. Companies want employees who can help them expand their borders and Spanish is now among the languages most in demand in the marketplace. Today there are 21 countries that have Spanish as their official language. Some of them have excellent prospects for business.
Travel will be a more enriching and gratifying experience thanks to the possibility of speaking Spanish. Spanish-speaking countries include such popular destinations as Spain, Cuba, Mexico and the Dominican Republic.
Not knowing the language is always limiting in terms of places to visit and people to meet, or at least, to communicate with. This makes it likely that you will miss very important aspects of the country’s culture.
Speaking Spanish will give you the possibility of working or studying in a Spanish-speaking country, which can help with professional and personal development.
