As a new development for this 2013 course, Escuela de Idiomas Nerja is offering Spanish courses in order to be able to later begin specialised finance studies at the prestigious business school ESERP (School of Business and Social Sciences) with locations in Madrid, Barcelona and Palma de Mallorca. The Andalusian academy and ESERP are collaborating in this way to train foreign students in Spain interested in the business world. Nowadays, the finance sector is more important than ever with thousands of professionals in constant communication in order to complete commercial transactions. The data show a rise in the need for Spanish throughout the world. The use of business Spanish increases trade between countries by more than 200%. Furthermore, the rise in popularity of the Spanish language is expected to be unstoppable in countries as powerful as the USA, Brazil (where Spanish in required at secondary schools) and China. In 2030, 7.5% of the world’s population will be Spanish-speaking (a total of 535 million people). A few years later, in 2050, the USA will become the largest Spanish-speaking country in the world.
Spanish as a Tool in the World
Currently, the Spanish language is the second most important language in the world as far as native speakers and also the second most commonly used language in international relations. Its importance leads more and more professionals on the five continents every day to wanting to specialise in learning business Spanish. In an ever more globalised world and with an ever more competitive market, the proper use of business Spanish is proving to be the essential path towards successfully obtaining commercial agreements and establishing economic and financial ties with companies in the Spanish-speaking world which accounts for 450 million people.
These data show that business Spanish is very important these days in the international market and, in the next few years, it will become absolutely essential to establishing solid and long-lasting commercial relationships between companies in different countries. For this reason, Escuela de Idiomas Nerja and ESERP are initiating their collaboration in 2013 aimed at training the best professionals in the economic sector.
The study programme offered by Escuela de Idiomas Nerja lasts a minimum of one month in any of the three options: Intensive Course, Super-Intensive Course or Intensive + Individual Courses. After learning and improving their Spanish, students will be ready to specialise in business Spanish at ESERP. This business school is highly prestigious in this country and abroad because of its twenty-five years of experience teaching university-level economics.
