Spanish in Washington DC

Why learn Spanish in Washington D.C.? – As the nation’s capital, Washington D.C. is home to pockets of many ethnic groups, languages, and cultures. Currently the fastest growing ethnic group in D.C., Latinos accounted for 11% of the population in 2018, according to data from the U.S. Census Bureau. Even more impressive was the Bureau’s finding that there are more than 900,000 Latinos residing in the metropolitan area surrounding D.C. Spanish is an important language for the region, especially since nearly half of all non-English speaking households have Spanish as their default language, according to the 2017 American Community Survey.

 

The city’s Latino population is also the 12th largest in the country, and the people come from many different places. Mexico, El Salvador, Argentina, Chile, Honduras, Peru, and Spain are just a few of the countries represented. Taking Spanish classes in Washington D.C. is one great way to interact with this multitude of people and cultures. By gaining proficiency in Spanish, you can experience the cultures of so many fascinating places, without ever leaving home.  

Washington D.C. also boasts a wide range of Latino cultural activities, including its annual Fiesta DC celebration. The festival brings traditional cuisines from Mexico and Latin America, a science fair, a beauty pageant, arts vendors, and a parade to the bustling metropolis. There’s also a multitude of other ways to encounter Latino culture, such as art exhibits, film screenings, concerts, and meet-ups for Spanish speakers. The Spain Arts & Culture organization hosts the Ibero-American Film Showcase, and dance showcases as well as musical performances happen frequently. By signing up to take Spanish courses in Washington D.C., you can position yourself to communicate with and engage at a much deeper level with your fellow neighbors.

With Spanish being the second most-spoken language in the U.S., many employers look for bilingual candidates. People who speak both English and Spanish can find work in almost any field, and employers offer better compensation packages to workers who can move between both languages with ease. It’s also the language that’s studied the most as a foreign language, all across the U.S.! Outside the U.S., Spanish is an official language in many countries, including Argentina, Mexico, Spain, Costa Rica, and the Dominican Republic. Needless to say, taking Spanish lessons in Washington D.C. opens up many possibilities both domestically and abroad.
