Why Spanish?

  • Spanish opens the doors to many domestic and international career opportunities.
  • Sophisticated professions such as those in medicine, international distribution, the oil and gas industry, power generation, luxury goods, aviation and other transportation technologies encompass extensive Spanish-speaking networks.
  • Knowledge of the Spanish language is also an asset in the fields of literature, the fine arts, gastronomy, cinema, law, and business. Scores of major international businesses and organizations, as well as American companies, regularly recruit candidates who speak Spanish.
  • Students who learn Spanish perform better on standardized tests since more than 50% of modern-day English words trace their origins to Spanish.  This means that Spanish has a relatively quick learning curve, which boosts a student’s confidence.
