SOME OF THE MANY GOOD REASONS TO LEARN FROM AN ACCOMPLISHED SPANISH TUTOR
1. LEARNING SPANISH IS FUN
Think of all the things you can enjoy doing by learning to speak and understand Spanish. You can read the menus, converse with your waiters and waitresses and order meals comfortably and confidently in restaurants that specialize in Mexican and other Spanish cuisine. You can watch Spanish-speaking movies without the need for subtitles. You can read books, websites, and other materials written in Spanish. Perhaps best of all, a good Spanish tutor can help you can carry on conversations with Spanish-speaking people. The more Spanish you learn, and the more fluent you are with it, the more fun you can have using your Spanish skills in all sorts of enjoyable settings and situations.
2. LEARNING SPANISH CAN ENABLE YOU TO HELP OTHERS
By learning Spanish, you can help Spanish-speaking people who don’t understand English, as well as English-speaking people who don’t understand Spanish. You can communicate effectively with both, and even assist them in communicating with each other. This can be a very rewarding aspect of learning Spanish.
3. SPANISH-SPEAKING PEOPLE ARE EVERYWHERE
The United States has more than 35 million Spanish-speaking people, and an Hispanic population in excess of 50 million. Spanish is the second most commonly spoken language in the U.S., and the fourth most common in the world. With so many Spanish-speakers everywhere, learning Spanish provides you with the ability to communicate easily and enjoyably with far more people wherever you are.
4. LEARNING SPANISH CAN BE A NECESSITY IN BUSINESS
Because Spanish is so prevalent in the business world, learning Spanish with a great Spanish tutor enables you to better-communicate with Spanish-speaking employees and co-workers. Having the ability to speak Spanish included on your resumé can open many more doors for employment opportunities and career advancement.
5. LEARNING SPANISH CAN BE GOOD FOR YOUR HEALTH
Studies show that knowing and using two languages can reduce your chances of developing dementia – including Alzheimer’s disease – by enhancing your mental abilities and acuity, improving your memory and critical thinking skills, stimulating your creativity, and actually making you smarter.
