Why You Should Learn Spanish

Yes, I will try to advocate learning Spanish. What could be more boring than learning a second language that you might not even use, ever. Well, maybe I will be able to convince you after all. Just imagine: you see a beautiful Latina (Latino, if you are a lady!) and you fall in love at first sight. The only problem is that he/she only speaks Spanish, while you don’t know a word of it. This is just one example of a situation in which you would wish you knew how to speak Spanish. Trust me; there can be other situations, more difficult than this one.

Fun and games aside, learning a language is not a cakewalk. You have to put in a lot of effort as well as spend your time and money. So, you need to have a good reason to take the plunge. Here are some compelling reasons why you should learn Spanish.

  • Spanish is considered to be the ideal second language for a native English speaker. The main reason for this is tourism, which is skewed towards Latin America and Hispanic countries because of their cost-effectiveness. In fact, Spanish is fast becoming a staple of pop culture so it’s helpful if you understand it.
  • More employment opportunities are available to you if you are proficient in multiple languages. There are jobs which require employees to interact with people from other countries and Spanish is one of the most widely spoken languages in the world.
  • Learning a new language improves the functioning of your brain. It enhances your memory as well as expanding your worldview. Language is the foundation of any culture and you will come in touch with a whole different culture than you are familiar with. This would help to broaden your perspective and thinking. Moreover, learning a language slows down the aging process of the brain!
  • You have the chance to help out other people by learning Spanish. It is likely you would have come across a native Spanish speaker who doesn’t know English being stranded or failing to communicate. You can help out such people by acting as an intermediary.

These were some compelling reasons. There are other benefits you would enjoy as well which aren’t so formal.

  • You will be able to watch Spanish language TV channels and films and enjoy Latin music.
  • You will be able to order for yourself in a Mexican restaurant.
  • You will be able to impress your friends and family.

Though you may be convinced to learn Spanish now, the fact remains that learning a language is a tedious task. However, Bright Spanish can make it easier and fun for you, and the best thing, classes are free!  That means, you will be speaking Spanish like a native for FREE!

      Hi Danny,

      I think learning Spanish is great for residents of any country! Even if you don’t have a lot of Spanish speakers in your home country, like we do in America, speaking Spanish still opens up a lot of great travel opportunities to Spain or South & Central America. Not to mention, with Spanish being one of the most widely-spoken languages in the world, knowing the language can be great for business opportunities. Of course, it’s much harder to remember a language that you don’t get the opportunity to practice every day, but luckily, with the internet, you can always find someone to speak Spanish with! Plus there are always Spanish-language movies and books to keep you practicing and remembering. If you ever want a chance to learn some Spanish, check out our free online live video classes!
