Spanish in Auckland
Spanish is one of the most-spoken languages in the world, with almost 450 million speakers who live in almost every country and city on Earth. One of them is Auckland, where the number of people who claim Spanish as their native language amounts to 2,000, according to the 2013 census. This is a relatively recent development, as immigration to New Zealand from Spain was minimal until the first quarter of the 20th century, when rural poverty and urban congestion led Spanish citizens to move to Auckland in their hunt for a better future. Today, learning Spanish in the city will help you connect with a growing community of Spanish and Latino people while taking advantage of professional opportunities available to bilingual speakers. Get in touch with us at Language Trainers and we will start preparing a course that suits your needs, requirements and schedule!
Why Study Spanish in Auckland
For Work: If you would like to connect with entrepreneurs of Latino origin, with the aim to establish your business overseas or connect with the local Spanish-speaking community, then the Latin America New Zealand Business Council can give you a hand. This is the leading business organisation for Latino businesses in Auckland, focused solely on the promotion of trade and commerce between New Zealand and Latin America. Take part in their conferences and talks, attended by native speakers from Argentina, Colombia, Venezuela and more, and establish long-term partnerships with them using your new Spanish skills! And if you are more interested in establishing commercial relations with companies of Spanish origin, then reach out to the New Zealand Europe Business Council on Renall Street. For example, you can join their annual Spanish gala, where you can enjoy delicious traditional cuisine, listen to amazing flamenco songs and network with businesspeople in Spanish!
For Culture: If you are not actively looking for a job but would like to experience the Hispanic culture in the city instead, you will find many instances for doing so. If you like music, for example, you can take some lessons and learn how to dance flamenco like a true Spanish person at Flamenco Alive NZ. This school was founded in 1993 to promote this art in New Zealand. They also offer guitar, singing, cajón and palmas classes. And if you are more interested in participating in parties and celebrations, you should not miss the Sudaka party, where you can dance all night long to the rhythm of salsa, reggaeton and cumbia, while sipping on exotic drinks like fernet from Argentina. Take part in the karaoke and sing with the flawless pronunciation you learn with us at Language Trainers!
For Social: Work and culture aside, learning a new language can also help you meet like-minded people around the city. The Auckland Spanish Language Meetup Group, for example, is a great option if you would like to socialise while using your new Spanish skills. Most of their latino and non-latino members get together at least once a week to speak in Spanish and to polish their vocabulary, pronunciation and speaking skills in general. They welcome any person with a keen interest in Spain, Latin America and their cultures, regardless of language ability or age, so you can join in, even if you have only recently started your Spanish course in Language Trainers.
