Spanish for IGCSE Students
Every person who studies a language has their own approach, strategies and goals, but without a reason for learning, we are doomed to lose motivation sooner or later.
SPANISH FOR IGCSE STUDENTS
Spanish is one of the most widely spoken languages. It is the second language in the USA and second most popular language in Europe after English. It is the official language in 21 countries around the world including Spain. Spanish is becoming more and more important with respect to business needs. Imagine learning the second most-spoken language in the world, being able to communicate with people from all the continents (yes, Spanish is an official language in at least one country in each populated continent).
WHY IS THIS COURSE IMPORTANT?
Are you career-oriented? Would you like to get a better job or have several employers throw offers and counteroffers in a scramble to hire you? Then start learning Spanish now!
It does not matter if you want to stay in America or you plan on finding a job abroad—the fact remains that with the number of Spanish speakers growing, sooner or later you will have to attend to a patient who only speaks Spanish or help a South American client get their taxes sorted.
If you are a translator or an interpreter, mastering Spanish can open a whole new world of documents that need to be translated and people who will hire you to interpret for them while at a meeting or an interview.
Learning Spanish will add that final touch to your resume that will make you stand out among the rest of candidates who are applying for that job you so want to get.
However, if you do not want to change your career or leave your job, Spanish is also a great asset that can help you get promoted at your current place of employment!
Maybe your bosses want their managers to speak three languages fluently. Maybe the company is opening a new branch office in Venezuela and they are looking for an American with fluent Spanish to be their international director. Or maybe your employers are like many others who value foreign language skills in their employees.
You never know! There are so many ways of going up the ladder just by learning Spanish.
Being fluent is only the first step in becoming a professional translator or interpreter. Like any other profession, it requires practice, experience, and training.

- Advance Your Career
Language skills can be a significant competitive advantage that sets you apart from your monolingual peers.
- Feed Your Brain
who speak more than one language have improved memory, problem-solving and critical-thinking skills, enhanced concentration, ability to multitask, and better listening skills.
- Deepen Your Connection to Other Cultures
Language is the most direct connection to other cultures. Being able to communicate in another language exposes us to and fosters an appreciation for the traditions, religions, arts, and history of the people associated with that language. Greater understanding, in turn, promotes greater tolerance, empathy, and acceptance of others—with studies showing that children who have studied another language are more open toward and express more positive attitudes toward the culture associated with that language.
- See the World
Traveling as a speaker of the local language can revolutionize a trip abroad. While monolingual travelers are capable of visiting the same places, travelers who know more than one language are more easily able to navigate outside the tourist bubble and to connect and interact with the place and its people in a way that is often inaccessible to those without the language. Learning a second language also opens additional doors to opportunities for studying or working abroad.
