Spanish in New York

While the U.S. is widely acknowledged as an English-speaking country, Spanish is a language rapidly gaining dominance. In New York City, which alone is home to 800 different languages, Spanish is the second-most spoken language in all the city’s neighborhoods. According to the Census Bureau’s American Community Survey, 1.9 million people speak Spanish in the city! Clearly, NYC hosts a vibrant, lively Hispanic community, and Spanish culture can be found in all corners of the city. Taking Spanish lessons in New York allows you to fully integrate into a culture which holds huge influence in the U.S., while broadening your social and professional horizons, too. Contact us today so we can discuss your options for taking Spanish classes in NYC.

 

Why Study Spanish in NYC

For Work: Learning Spanish allows you access to greater business opportunities in both Europe and South America, two of the most important trading partners of the U.S. Currently, the country has firmly established relationships with several Spanish-speaking countries, including free trade agreements with countries such as Chile, Peru, and the Dominican Republic. There are also Spanish business institutions that foster economic ties between the USA and Spain, such as the Spain- U.S Chamber of Commerce on Broad Street. Founded in 1959, their guiding mission is to advance, promote, and assist in the expansion of bilateral trade and investment. They usually organize many networking events, so it is a good idea to contact them if you would like to get in touch with Spanish entrepreneurs and companies!

For Culture: New York City is home to immigrants from all over the world and one-quarter of its 8 million residents are Hispanic or Latino. As a result, Hispanic art heritage, literature, and current cultural debates are kept up across the city. Take advantage of the opportunity to experience this fascinating culture without leaving your city! For example, the NYC Indie Film Festival always features Spanish movies in their original language, and directors and actors very frequently attend the screenings. Why not try to meet them and impress them with your newly-acquired Spanish skills? Other festivals occur on an annual basis, including the Latin America Culture Week, a 10-day celebration of Hispanic culture, filled with Latin music, flamenco dances, and art exhibitions. And after taking some lessons with us, you can try and read the Spanish version of the New York Latin Culture Magazine! Founded in 2012, this magazine covers classic and contemporary Latino culture in New York, so you can discover information about fashion, the best Spanish and Latino restaurants and clubs, and much more!

For Travel: Spanish has the advantage of being a global language, being the official language of 20 countries! With over 400 million speakers around the world, according to Ethnologue, Spanish extends your freedom to travel massively. If you are planning to travel to Spain or Latin America, taking Spanish classes in New York will open the door to an even greater experience abroad. According to data collected by Hitlist in 2018, Barcelona ranked among the top 10 holiday destinations for New Yorkers, and was one of the few places on the list located outside of the U.S. There is nothing quite like the temptation of a Spanish beach along the Mediterranean coast, after all! You can also take a direct flight to Latin American countries, such as Colombia. In only 5 hours, you will be on one of the breathtaking Colombian beaches, ordering food and drinks using the Spanish pronunciation you learn with us at Language Trainers! A combination of Spanish and English will take you around the world, allowing you to experience travel like never before.
