The Spanish Academy has many students who study Spanish for business related reasons. There are an estimated 399 million Spanish speakers in the world, thus Spanish can be extremely useful for employability in numerous job sectors. Alicia is one of our business specialist tutors, based in our London centre. Originally from Argentina, she has a business background and is knowledgeable on a number of topics, allowing her to lead intelligent discussions on specialised topics, such as IT, Law, Technology, Medicine and Insurance, which are prevalent themes in many industry sectors.
As Alicia explains in her video below, our Business Spanish classes focus on all four of the main language learning skills; speaking, reading, writing and listening, as well as the study of grammar, vocabulary and translation. Business Spanish classes are available from beginners level to advanced level as all classes can be adapted according to the specific level of each student. According to the industry in which the student works, Alicia tailors the classes so that the vocabulary and terms are directly related to this industry. Alicia focuses her classes on making sure her student is able to confidently carry out daily tasks in Spanish, which are likely to be arise at work, such as presentations, numerical concepts, videoconference calls, as well as Spanish for business trips abroad. As Alicia explains, the classes with her student who is a Foreign Diplomat bound for Chile, involve exercises involving podcasts, videos, advertisements and newspaper articles on different topics such as education, politics, travel and economics.
