Nowadays, many thousands of students and professionals are aware of the importance of the Spanish language. In an increasingly globalised world, the need for learning a language spoken by more than 400 million people is a must for those interesting in acquiring an up-to-date education, one that will guarantee their professional future.
The study of Spanish has experienced a boom in recent years. In the USA it has become the language spoken and studied the most after English. The same is true in many European schools, where Spanish is now the main optional language, often surpassing German, French or Italian. This growing interest in our language means that Spanish is now the second language spoken the most in the world.

All the more so if we take into account the fact that its good reputation can be extended to the rest of the city’s Spanish schools.
