Top Reasons Why To Learn Spanish

Feb 6, 2008
There are a great number of advantages to learning a new language. Depending on your location there are also more benefits to learning Spanish. This article will cover some of reasons why you should learn Spanish.

First of all, learning a second language, like Spanish, will give you the opportunity to speak to new people. Generally people love to hear somebody else's opinion on something they have a view on. It is useful for learning more about a subject and feeling a common humanity. By speaking to people with different languages and cultures you can get vastly different views on a topic.

Ok, now that we've got the existential stuff out of the way lets turn to the more prosaic facts for learning Spanish. Spanish is the third most spoken language in the world. Indeed, Only English is more widely spoken than Spanish in terms of geographical locations. Spanish is also the second most widely spoken second language. These numbers mean that you will be able to use the language if you manage to learn it.

So how else might it benefit you. You will be able to travel to many countries and use their language. A common problem with traveling to foreign countries is that you are limited in what you can do for language reasons.

There are obvious reasons for learning Spanish in the United States. The Spanish language is growing rapidly in the country and many communities are primarily Latin or south American. This means you will be able to develop relationships in these regions. This makes sense at a business level too, as they may need your services and will need to communicate in Spanish.

In terms of the individual, learning how to speak Spanish can be beneficial. An example of this is that you will be seen in a more favorable light in job interviews and have better prospects if you are bilingual. The chances of promotion or even more exciting opportunities may exist if you have bilingual language abilities.

Learning Spanish will help you understand English better. Most people don't understand their native tongue grammar because they learned it as a baby. Studying Spanish will force you to understand grammar and this will give you an appreciation of English grammar. This will improve your written, and possibly your spoken, English.

If you develop a love for learning languages then Spanish can help you learn Italian and French. Spanish is a romantic language, like French and Italian, thus the grammar is essentially the same. In fact the only problems you will have are different spellings and pronouncing the words.

Thus there are benefits on a personal level, job opportunities and a richer appreciation of life by learning Spanish.
