Our Reasons For Learning Spanish

Why does it make sense to want to learn Spanish? If you are living in the USA today, the answers can be many and varied.Starting with the bigger picture first, we can see how it really is an advantage for anyone to be able to speak a second language today.Technology has made our world smaller. By that I mean it is no longer difficult or time-consuming to speak to someone on the other side of the world as it was a mere ten years ago. With technology growing in leaps and bounds, we no longer think it a strange thing to be communicating with someone in the United Kingdom over the internet or talking on the phone to a relative in Japan.As our world grows smaller around us, the need to communicate in different languages becomes apparent every day. Our grandparents would probably never have considered learning another language - why should they? Nowadays, and for many reasons, it seems that being able to speak a second language is even more desirable than ever.This is no more apparent than here in the USA. America is more multi-cultural than it has ever been. Add to that, the fact that commercial advances are being made every day as trade is broadening out into a worldwide endeavor.But Why Learn Spanish?The reasons for anyone wanting to learn how to speak Spanish vary according to age and occupation. Younger people probably want to learn Spanish for different reasons than someone who is at retirement age. Stay at home moms have other reasons for learning Spanish than a man who is a business executive.Young people, especially smaller children, have an advantage when learning new languages. It is well known that it is easier to learn to speak a new language when you are young. We absorb more and retain more information, our minds are sharper and more pliable at a younger age. Since children are usually taught a second language at school, it is more likely that younger people are not really seen as having a choice of whether they want to learn Spanish or not. Nevertheless, since the growth in the Spanish speaking population in the USA has skyrocketed recently, it would seem to be a worthwhile endeavor for children to learn to speak Spanish, if only to be able to communicate with their school friends.As you get older and life becomes more complicated however, the desire or need to learn a second or third language is very much up to the individual. Business men would probably see the profitability in being able to communicate more freely with prospective clients or workers. The married couple may wish to learn Spanish before they travel or because they have Spanish speaking friends. Job seekers will find that in today's job market it gives you that competitive edge if you can also speak Spanish. Older couples may decide to retire to a Spanish speaking country and of course it makes life easier (and retirement more enjoyable) if you can speak native language of the country you are living in.Of course, whatever the reason for learning Spanish, there is no doubt that knowing another language increases your sense of achievement and adds to your life experience, no matter where you live.
