Spanish Immersion in the Workplace
Spanish is one of the world's most important languages across the board: politics, business, economics, culture, international organizations... the list goes on. It's the official language of well over 20 countries and in just a few years the Spanish-speaking population will hit 500 million! Needless to say, the demand for Spanish-speaking professionals is skyrocketing. Imagine the advantage you will have as a job candidate when companies see that you speak Spanish?
That's why we have numerous work immersion programs that will provide you with the linguistic confidence and field-specific skills you will need to thrive in Spanish-speaking professional environments. Our methodology is based on 100% linguistic and cultural immersion, which ensures that you make the most out of your time abroad while achieving your work-related objectives.
