With more and more students now taking up University places, the competition in the job market is reaching its peak, making it even more challenging for Graduates to find suitable employment. You therefore need to offer a potential employer an added extra to other candidates. This is where language learning can maximise your potential, as, students who possess the ability to speak a fluent level of Spanish, possess an extremely marketable and sought after skill.
With increased industry and trade links with Europe, the relevance and value of a foreign language have never been more obvious. Spanish is the world's third most spoken language and is the second most used language in international communication, and an official language of the UN and its organisations. Its importance in the economic field is growing faster than any other language as Spanish is the key to control business relationships with South America.
A language can in fact complement any other choice of subjects and provide you with a life long skill that can open up a whole new world of film, literature, art, sport etc.
Throughout the two year course, students will be given plenty of opportunity to put their language skills into practice. They will be encouraged to listen to Spanish radio and watch as much Spanish TV as they can, in addition to reading current newspapers and magazines. Students will also be encouraged to spend as much time in Spain as they can, with the possibility of taking part in a school exchange.
