- Travelling to Spain and South America
Spain and South America have always been attractive holiday destinations. Imagine how fun
it would be if you could speak the local language! These two destinations are known for
welcoming tourists very nicely, but they also appreciate it even more if you try to speak
Spanish. They embrace your learning, so no shame if you make mistakes! On top of that, in
these countries many people do not speak English, so you will improve your Spanish skills
very fast when visiting any of these destinations.
- Spanish is the 4 th most spoken language worldwide
Learning Italian, Portuguese or French can be nice… but let´s be practical! Spanish is spoken
in many more countries around the world. This is an interesting fact not only for travelling
but also for potential career opportunities. Languages make your CV stand out, and Spanish
does so even more, as it is the 4 th most spoken language worldwide, behind English,
Mandarin, and Hindi.
- Exposing yourself to a new culture
Spain and South America are completely different in terms of culture, but you even have
those differences within locations in Spain and in South America. The culture of all Spanish-
speaking countries is very rich and characteristic: from exquisite, world-recognized
gastronomy; to strong values focused on collectiveness. Click here to learn about our top

- Increasing your cognitive health
Several studies have suggested bilingualism can improve the brain’s cognitive function, by
producing great cognitive control abilities, increasing nonverbal and verbal capabilities,
increasing perceptual sensitivity, and conferring some protection against ageing, most notably
delaying the onset of dementia. What better way to take care of your brain, than to learn
Spanish while having fun at Academia El Sur?
- Boosting creativity
When your brain accesses a wider vocabulary, you are able to produce more ideas and concepts
because your mind is open. Innovative thinking is easily activated through someone who is
bilingual or multilingual compared to someone who has mastered only one language. It is all
thanks to the learning curve of expressing yourself in another language. Developing cultural awareness and new modes of expression is also a contributing factor to one’s levels of creativity. Enhance the creativity within yourself by learning Spanish at Academia El Sur!
- Getting a Spanish-speaking partner
There is no better motivation to learn Spanish than having a Spanish-speaking partner. This
way you will get fully immersed in the language and culture, and you can often practise the
language. Imagine having to communicate with a Spanish-speaking family that does not
know any other language! We can confirm that students with a Spanish-speaking partner
not only learnt faster but were much more committed than others!
