Language schools provide expert language training for busy individuals who
require a language
course for work, travel, study or family needs. Courses are usually taught
one-to-one or in small groups and are targetted at the needs of the learner
in a way that large group classes cannot be.
A large database of teachers all over the world means that travel time and
expenses are kept to a minimum. A German course in Watford will be taught by
a German teacher in or around Watford; a course to learn
Japanese in Dubai will be taught by a Japanese teacher based in Dubai.
If you need to learn
Spanish, language schools can help you. Spanish is one of the most commonly
spoken languages on the planet and the unofficial second language of the United
States. Over 300 million people speak Spanish, with a large number of these
living in Latin America. If you intend to visit Spain, Mexico, Peru, Bolivia,
Argentina, Chile, Venezuela
or Andorra, a knowledge of Spanish is a real advantage.
Courses to learn
French are another popular choice among people learning with travelling
in mind. Large parts of Africa have French as an official language, along with
France and Belgium in Europe. Many people say that French is the most beautiful
and expressive of all languages. It is still the most commonly taught language
in British secondary schools although more adults now choose to take Spanish
German has become popular in recent years because of the rapidly growing industry there.
With huge car and technology companies, options such a sprachreise as they would say in Germany,
are rising in popularity amongst school leavers – not only do they get to experience the fantastically
diverse culture of the city but learn a language and thus boost their career options too!
Another of the world's most commonly spoken languages is Arabic.
More people every year are choosing to learn
Arabic and it is viewed as an essential part of 'understanding' the Middle
East and is an essential for anyone planning to do business in the region. Arabic
is one of the older languages and doesn't utilise the Roman characters shared
by all European languages.
The language which has aroused the most interest in recent years is Mandarin
(Chinese). More people around the world have Chinese as a first language than
any other. With almost a fifth of the world's population living in China, this
should come as no surprise. Naturally, a large number of the people who learn
Chinese are doing so for business purposes, as for example affiliate marketing, as China represents the world's
most rapidly growing market and is well on its way to becoming the world's largest
If you need to learn a new language but are short of time, language schools
could have just what you are looking for. The teaching provided is flexible
and targetted at your needs.
Remember that language learning isn’t just great for professional reason, but for personal ones too! It could be you want to work for a charity in a third world country – making crafts and fair trade purses for example – or you want to live the high life in a buzzing foreign capital city, either way, language learning can help you do both! Think of the possibilities – you’ll have more than enough motivation to pursue your second (or third!) language!
