Spanish in Birmingham
Spanish is one of the languages with the highest number of native speakers worldwide, only behind Chinese. As the official language of 21 countries and one of the 6 official languages of the United Nations and the European Union, learning Spanish opens the door to an entirely new perspective especially in Birmingham, the second most-populous city in the UK and one of its most diverse. Its inhabitants speak more than 108 languages, and one of the most popular ones is Spanish. Embrace the opportunity to study Spanish to be able to communicate with the Hispanic community in Birmingham! Our experienced, native-speaking teachers at Language Trainers will support you every step of the journey.
Why Study Spanish in Birmingham
For Work: Learning Spanish in Birmingham can certainly broaden your professional horizons. As a BBC analysis conducted in 2019 shows, the number of students studying foreign languages in the UK has been dropping in recent years. So, if you are looking for a new job, fluency in Spanish could be the skill you need to distinguish yourself from countless other candidates. For example, there are many companies such as Spanish Selection, Mondelez International and Claire’s who value bilingual employees. Also, with an economic output of over £985 million according to a report published by Birmingham City Council in 2019, this is a fantastic city to begin to establish financial connections on a global scale. So, you may want to join some of the events organised by the Greater Birmingham Chambers of Commerce on Suffolk St, which usually organises events where the main speakers are of Spanish origin.
For Culture: Birmingham’s diversity extends to all aspects of the city’s culture. For example, you can attend the Latin American Festival on Hurst St, an annual event that exhibits some of the best dances from Spanish-speaking countries such as Mexico, Argentina, and Cuba, and celebrated its 23rd anniversary in 2018. And if you are a music fan, Birmingham’s Symphony Hall on Broad St frequently invites and features rising star musicians around the world, including young Spanish talents like Pablo Ferrández. All his songs are in Spanish, so take advantage of this opportunity to develop your listening skills even further! The Barber Institute of Fine Arts is also a fantastic exhibition for artists, featuring artwork from Spanish painter Pablo Picasso. This institution has guided tours around the museum in Spanish, so taking some lessons with us will allow you to take advantage of the Hispanic culture available at home.
For Social and Travel: Those who want to make new friends using their newly-acquired Spanish can do so by joining MeetUp groups such as Birmingham Spanish Speakers, with almost 3,000 members. The purpose of this group is to get together and speak in Spanish whilst having a great time. They welcome anyone with an interest in the language, so take advantage of this great opportunity to put your speaking skills into play while socialising! And if you would like to visit Spain, you will be glad to know that Birmingham Airport’s official website reports over a hundred direct flights to Spain every week, making the country easily accessible for any enthusiastic language lover. In just 2 hours you can be in the beautiful cities of Tenerife, Málaga, Barcelona or Madrid, communicating with locals with the vocabulary you learn with Language Trainers!
