Why beginners should learn Spanish with Berlitz

Spanish is the second most widely spoken language in the world after English. It is spoken by more than 450 million people worldwide and is an official language in 21 countries. Above all, Spanish helps you get in touch with Latin American culture, learn about different customs, and have unique experiences. Knowing the Spanish language will also allow you to conduct international business more easily. You will be able to interact with people and professionals from different countries, thus broadening your professional horizons.

Many people have inhibitions at first when they start learning a new language, and avoid speaking for fear of making mistakes. At Berlitz, we therefore make sure to give our language students the confidence to speak freely and practice proper pronunciation from the very beginning. Our Berlitz language trainers are all native speakers who always help our students speak Spanish without accent.
