Benefits of Speaking Spanish

Fully Experience the Culture
Some of our most memorable moments are when we’ve been at the beach, in the mountains or even just on the street and had a spontaneous lengthy conversation with a local. They often have the most interesting stories and are always happy to share them! Moments like this really give us a deeper appreciation for the culture. Not only that but you can find out the best local bars, pool halls, food spots and pretty much anything so you can enjoy the lively day and nightlife!
It’s So Much Fun to Learn Spanish
The stages of learning a new language really are so much fun. From when you string your first sentence together, to your first all Spanish conversation, to even discovering you now talk to yourself in Spanish! It really is an exciting and fun process.
Learning A Second Language Is Healthy
Yes, you heard us right, learning a second language is actually healthy for you. It improves the functionality of your brain, memory skills, multitasking skills and decision making. Studies have even shown for adults that speak two or more languages, the mean age for the first signs of dementia is 4.1 years later than those who speak one language. Factors such as gender, health, income and education were all considered and the results remained consistent. Now that’s a good a reason as any!
