Spanish in Wellington
The relationship between New Zealand and Spanish-speaking communities around the world goes back centuries in time. In particular, the nation’s ties with South America, Central America and Mexico have flourished greatly since the late 20th century in terms of migration, trade and investment. Today, more than 3,000 people of Spanish or Latino descent live in Wellington, according to the 2013 census. Plus, New Zealand and Spain share many common interests and values, most notably with regard to peace and security and international trade. So, if you would like to discover just how much you have in common with the Spanish-speaking communities of Wellington and to broaden your professional horizons by mastering a new language, then start learning Spanish with us at Language Trainers today!
Why Study Spanish in Wellington
For Work: Taking a Spanish course in Wellington opens up a whole new world of employment prospects, evidenced by how trade between New Zealand and Spain is on the rise. Only in 2018, the total trade in goods amounted to $723 million, according to a report made by Statistics New Zealand. Also, a wide range of Wellington’s primary sector, manufacturing and services companies have a history of operating in Spain, with new opportunities being explored in the health, agribusiness, marine and tourism sectors. So, if you work within these fields, learning Spanish in the city will prove to be an asset as they require personnel who can communicate with Spanish speakers in New Zealand and around the world. Also, if you are actively job-seeking, get in touch with the Latin American Centre of Asia-Pacific Excellence, established in 2017 to prepare New Zealanders to engage with and do business with the countries of Latin America. Every month, they organise innovative programmes that inspire a passion for Latin America among young Kiwis and foster future business links with Latin American partners. Join their conferences and talks around Wellington to interact with entrepreneurs of Latino origin. We guarantee you will impress them with the Spanish you acquire with us at Language Trainers!
For Culture: Did you know that Wellington has countless opportunities for you to engage with the vibrant Hispanic culture? For example, the Spanish and Latinamerican Club, a non-profit organisation established in 1963, tries to foster diversity and strengthen cultural ties between locals and Spanish speakers. For that, they organise different types of activities, like movies in Spanish. Of course, all the films are screened with English subtitles, but we are sure you won’t even need them after taking a Spanish course with us! And if you are into music, you can try your hand, and your foot, at Spanish flamenco, Cuban salsa and Dominican Republic bachata by taking some lessons with the group.
For Social: Wellington also offers a lot of opportunities to put your Spanish to use outside the classroom. For instance, you can join the Wellington Spanish and Latin American Club to improve your Spanish while enjoying movies, live cultural performances, special presentations, outdoor activities, music and dance and traditional food and drinks! Join them in their weekly meetings and practise speaking in Spanish while meeting new people! This club also organises an annual feria to celebrate the cultures it champions. Visit the stalls of local Latino businesses, participate in raffles with great prizes to be won, games and activities and enjoy shows and a night of dancing with your new friends!
