Why Study Spanish?

Spanish is a widely spoken language all over the world, both as a mother tongue and as a second language.

Countries in which Spanish is spoken as a mother tongue include Spain, 20 countries in Latin America, the USA, and Equatorial Guinea. The language is also widely spoken in Canada, Belize, Andorra and Gibraltar. The Spanish Language is one of the official languages of the United Nations and many other international organisations.

Learning the Spanish language can expand your listening, reading, speaking, writing and communication skills allowing you to travel and work confidently overseas. It also introduces you to various aspects of societies and cultures that speak Spanish as a first language. As well, our program also builds up your intercultural skills so necessary in the globalized world of today.
