Spanish in London
London is a multicultural city where you can hear such a great variety of languages that over 300,000 residents reported to the 2011 census that they don’t speak English at all. About 9,000 of the city’s linguistically diverse residents claim that Spanish is their mother tongue. So, if you would like to connect with this community and all they have to offer, from traditional dancing to delicious food, learning Spanish in London is a smart move. Studying the language can also be useful when it comes to business. Bilateral trade between the UK and Spain was worth 40 billion pounds in 2017, and more than 400 Spanish companies are registered in Britain. Additionally, the “Languages for the Future” report, published in 2017 by the British Council, tested the usefulness of languages in the UK. It analysed economics, education and opportunities for travel, and Spanish landed in the number one spot as the most useful language. What does this mean for you? It means there is no better time to learn Spanish than today! Contact us today and let’s make it happen.
Why Study Spanish in London
For Work and Travel: Trade between the UK and Latin America doubled between 2011 and 2016, according to a report by RSA Insurance Group, so learning Spanish in London will certainly give your employability a boost and companies looking to expand into Latin America are in need of people who speak Spanish and know the local cultures and customs. Similarly, if you are looking for a job with company with links with Spain, you can get in touch with the Spanish Chamber of Commerce in the United Kingdom on Wigmore Street. Founded in 1886, this institution has the objective of advancing the economic and commercial relations between Spain and the United Kingdom by means of conferences and events. For example, every October, the Chamber organises a series of business breakfasts that welcome guest speakers, like the Spanish ambassador and businesspeople of Spanish origin, as well. The breakfast is followed by an open discussion between all event participants, so don’t miss out on this opportunity to impress them with your newly acquired Spanish. And the language is not just useful for finding new career opportunities but for improving the bank balance, too! Business Woman Media, in 2019, reported Spanish speakers can earn up to 20 percent more than a monolingual counterpart in the same job. This is the moment to make Spanish your second language!
For Culture: The fascinating Spanish and Latino cultures are present all over London for you to experience. For example, every June, there is a Spanish festival on Portobello Road that gathers together flamenco dancers, musicians, chefs and wine merchants to create a vibrant and colourful celebration of Spanish culture, food and music. Taste delicious paellas, croquetas, tortillas and jamón ibérico and experience the richness of Spain without leaving the city. And cinema-lovers will be happy to know they can attend the annual London Spanish Film Festival every September. Established in 2004, the festival comprises 5 days of traditional and contemporary Spanish cinema. In addition to showcasing the best films in their original language, the festival also features Q&As with directors and actors. Why not try to talk to them after the films are over and put your newly-acquired Spanish skills to use?
For Social: If you would like to meet like-minded people around London and share your passion for Spanish, you should join the London Spanish Language Meetup. This is a language exchange group that brings together people who want to practise their Spanish skills in a friendly space. And if you are more into parties and nightlife, you can go to the Scala on Pentonville Road with your new friends and experience a true Spanish fest without ever leaving London. This is the biggest Spanish night club in London. With three arenas under one roof and the best Spanish and international party tunes, chart hits, urban music and reggaeton, you will have the time of your life. Keep calm and party like the Spaniards!
