If you took Spanish in high school but think you’ve forgotten it all, you might be surprised to find you remember more than you thought. Consider taking a Spanish learning review course on cd. It is an opportunity to see how much Spanish you recall after “all these years.” There are many benefits to rekindling your ability to speak and read Spanish. Let’s look at some of them.
Like Riding A Bicycle
Just like riding a bicycle, remembering a language is easier than learning it the first time. The words will come back to you, and the formulation of the sentences will become second nature soon. It won’t be as hard to remember as you think – you can learn Spanish again with a cd to review.
Communication Is The Name Of The Game
There are over 350 million people who speak Spanish. If you can speak it, you can communicate with them. Worldwide, it is the 4th most common language spoken. Also, here in the United States, the number of Spanish immigrants is staggering. Wouldn’t it be great to be able to communicate with your neighbors and know what the guy in the next row over is talking about? Learning Spanish again by reviewing on a cd will help you stay involved in the world around you as people talk.
When In Rome…I Mean, When In A Spanish-Speaking Country….
Most of us want to do more traveling, and we probably will do it. There’s a good chance that you’ll visit a country where the primary language spoken is Spanish. Mexico, Central and South America, Spain – many countries claim Spanish as their language, and a high proportion of those who live there do not speak English more than a minimal amount. Studies show that those who speak a native language and understand the culture have a better experience when they visit, as they are able to mingle more with the natives and get a taste of the country, rather than just a taste of the tourism. It also makes it much easier to get around – ask for directions, order food and drinks, take a taxi, and find those out-of-the-way, not-to-be-missed local attractions. Another consideration is that when traveling to a foreign country it shows a respect for the people to speak their language if you can. If you review the Spanish you learned with a cd, you’ll be able to speak for yourself.
If you review by cd the Spanish learned years ago, you can improve your career possibilities. Many jobs are now asking for a second language – and most often, it is Spanish. If you’ve got a basic knowledge of Spanish, that can give you an edge up above your competitors, and may be what you needed to land the job you’ve wanted. As we live in an increasingly global world, the need to be able to communicate in more than one language has exploded. In almost every field, there are positions that require bilingual workers. Also, did you know that usually these employees will get a “second language bonus” and make more money?
