Why you should learn Spanish with Ruperto?
Posted by Ruperto Nunez Language School on July 25, 2012
The purpose of language is to communicate, to hear and to be understood. We learn our native tongue naturally through immersion - listening to our family and friends. After four or five years we are speaking fluently, we understand the rules of grammar and syntax. This takes place during our most receptive, developmental period of language learning – early childhood. After a time, this window of opportunity closes and language learning changes, becoming a form of second language acquisition. Learning a second language differs in that immersion is no longer enough! It takes some dedication and work and is well worth the effort.
Spanish is the primary language of 20 countries worldwide. It is estimated that the combined total number of Spanish speakers is between 470 and 500 million, making it one of the most widely spoken languages in terms of native speakers. Whether you are traveling or welcoming guests, making an overseas move or conducting business, learning Spanish opens up a whole new world of communication! Everyone appreciates being spoken to in their native tongue and you open up conversation to more that 400 million people worldwide!
