Why Learn Spanish in DC

For Work: Learning Spanish in Washington will prove to be an asset if you are planning to apply for a new job. A wide variety of Spanish and Latino companies are based in the city, like Submer Tecnologías, el Planeta Medios or Gente, and they are always looking to hire employees who can communicate fluently in Spanish. Also, you can get in touch with the Greater Washington Hispanic Chamber of Commerce on 17th Street. This institution aims to assist businesses in the DC area to grow by helping develop their network. Every year, more than 1,500 businesses and organizations of Latino and Spanish origin participate in their events, ranging from large corporations to one-person companies. Learn Spanish with Language Trainers and connect with these companies and entrepreneurs on a whole new level!

For Culture: If you would like to learn more about the Hispanic culture instead, you should attend the events organized by the Spain-USA Foundation on 16th Street. Enjoy and discover cultural events and works of internationally renowned Spanish artists in fields such as design, urban culture, architecture, visual arts, performing arts, literature, and music. Also, Washington, D.C. offers many Spanish literary events and book presentations. If you love literature, don’t hesitate to attend these presentations and interact with Spanish speakers in their native language! Another benefit of taking up Spanish in Washington, D.C. is enjoying Latino film festivals without relying on English subtitles. For example, you can attend the Mexico Films Across Borders, hosted every week by the Mexican Cultural Institute on Dupont Circle. Is there a better way to practice your Spanish skills than watching these movies in their original language?

For Social: And if you would like to make new, like-minded friends, join the Spanish Language DC Meetup, a language exchange group where you can meet with other language learners to practice Spanish in a fun, relaxed way. They welcome beginners and intermediate speakers, and there are events for everybody. Some of them are held at restaurants, like Jaleo on 7th Street, where you can have some tortilla de papa or langostinos al ajillo! And if you would like to taste delicious salchipapa or lomo salteado from Peru, you should not miss Nazca Mochica on P Street. Order in Spanish and impress both your friends and the personnel with your language skills. Further, why not attend the amazing Fiesta DC with your new friends? This is a two-day event held in the heart of Washington, D.C., with a parade and festival.
