Dutch in Santa Barbara
Dutch is the language of the Netherlands and Belgium –two countries with ties to the world’s richest trading partners. And despite the fact that English proficiency abounds in both, Dutch speakers have the upper hand in business, travel, and personal dealings within these two countries. Although Dutch is most common in the European Union, speakers of the language can also be found in the Caribbean Islands, France, Germany, Indonesia, North America, and Australia.
Originally a small town made up of several adobes and families of Spanish explorers, Santa Barbara was a mission city that quickly grew into a global powerhouse. The second half of the 20th century saw the appearance of offshore oil drilling which helped Santa Barbara expand rapidly. A few decades later, the service industry has begun to boom in the area making the need for workers with foreign language a must for employers. Workers looking to capitalize on this trend can begin learning a new language today with a qualified, native speaking teacher at Language Trainers. All lessons and courses are set to the student’s pace to optimize learning. Our free online language tests allow you to test your foreign language abilities and give you the opportunity to get started today by contacting us about a custom-made plan.
