Why study Spanish?

A rich cultural heritage, history, traditions, wonderful gastronomy, football passion, fashion industry, beautiful sceneries and a warm welcome: learning Spanish will open all of these possibilities up to you. If this is not enough, here are five more reasons why you should learn Spanish:

  1. Spanish is second only to English as an international language, with more than 500 million speakers across the world.
  2. Spanish is the second most widely spoken language in four continents. In addition, 20 million people decide to take up Spanish every year and its demand has doubled in the past few years.
  3. Speaking Spanish will enable you to immerse yourself in the rich cultural offering available across 20 Spanish-speaking countries.
  4. It is easy to learn and speak and opens doors to learning other Romance languages.
  5. aSpain has the second highest number of UNESCO World Heritage sites and is the third most popular destination in the world. You may want to discover the deep roots and ties between the Spanish and Arabic culture by joining the Route of the Al-Andalus Heritage, in the region of Andalusia, inviting tourists to discover Andalusia through the Muslim presence in the region between the 8th and 15th centuries.
Why study Spanish at the TII?

3. Qualified Spanish teachers. Our experienced teachers are highly qualified, native Spanish speakers from Spain and Latin America. You can learn more about them here (direct them to the TII teachers page)

4. Communicative approach. At our Spanish language program, we are keenly aware of the fact that our students are primarily interested in verbal communication and although we teach all four skills, our emphasis is on speaking and listening skills. We want to fast-track you to your goal. Students will be exposed to Spanish language since day one, immersed in a friendly environment.

5. Certificates. The TII offers Spanish language in-house certificates of attainment based on guidelines set out by the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). Created by the Council of Europe, this framework has set the bar for language capability assessments throughout Europe and, indeed, much of the rest of the world too.
