Spanish in Edinburgh

Why learn Spanish in Edinburgh? – Edinburgh has the strongest economy of any city in the UK outside of London, with 43% of its population holding a degree level or professional qualification. That’s the highest percentage of professionals in the UK, according to a 2016 study by TalentScotland. Competition in Edinburgh is fierce, which is why learning a language such as Spanish is essential for giving you the edge over other competitors. As the second-most-spoken native language in the world, Spanish is essential for communication on a global level. Taking Spanish courses in Edinburgh could enhance your marketability greatly among employers, taking your career to an international stage.

The Hispanic community in Edinburgh is also large and vibrant. Forming organisations such as the Hispanic Arts Scotland, the society has gathered large Edinburgh flamenco flash mobs celebrated all over the city. The University of Edinburgh organises its own Edinburgh Spanish Film Festival, bringing together both the local and Hispanic community through the arts. Taking Spanish classes in Edinburgh brings you closer to this exotic and lively culture whilst remaining in the heart of Scotland. Learning a foreign language integrates you into a greater, multicultural community, and it is a skill essential for keeping up with our fast-evolving society.

Today, relations with Hispanic nations play a vital role in British economy. In 2017, two-way trade between Mexico and the UK amounted to $4.7 billion, according to a report by the Mexican Ministry of the Economy. The business potential lying in Latin America is enormous, and learning Spanish will enable you to tap into these newfound resources with ease. The benefits, however, are not limited to business. Spanish is the official language of 20 different countries, so the ability to speak it will make your travels abroad that much more exciting. Spain is one of the favourite holiday destinations for Scotlands citizens, with passenger numbers for tourist hotspots like Madrid and Malaga rising every year. In 2018, some of the busiest routes to and from Edinburgh came from Spain, says the Edinburgh Airport. Learning Spanish will not only enhance your career, but can enrich your personal life too, granting you much more freedom on your holidays to explore the country in depth.

Languages, when learnt properly, open the doors to new possibilities and a new way to see the world. At Language Trainers we are fully aware of the beauty and potential of languages, and this is why our highly qualified, native-speaking teachers understand the importance of lessons tailored to suit the individual. Sign up to Spanish lessons in Edinburgh and we will ensure that you achieve your personal language goals, adapted to suit your schedule and your convenience.
