International students of UCAM Language School


Learning a foreign language, like Spanish, is becoming much more of a necessity in today's society. Learning Spanish is easier and more enjoyable than ever with audio courses, online courses, study abroad, and intensive language courses.

Following are just some of the many reasons learning Spanish will benefit you and enrich your life:


More than 400 million people speak Spanish worldwide

By learning Spanish, you'll be better able to communicate with the native Spanish speakers. Whether you travel abroad or having an international business meeting, you'll likely run into more than one situation that will require you to know at least basic Spanish.

Spanish speaking countries include Argentina, Belize, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Democratic Republic of Congo, Equatorial Guinea, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Spain, Uruguay and Venezuela.


Foreign language as competitive advantage

When applying for a job, being able to speak a second language will set you apart from others vying for the same position. Fluency in (or even a working knowledge of) another language will also greatly increase your employment opportunities. Employers love applicants that have fluency (or even moderate fluency) in a foreign language – so majoring in a foreign language is a great way to initially bump up your resume’s attractiveness and keep your name at the top of your employer’s short list.
