In today’s global economy, businesses seek out employees who can speak a variety of languages. In fact, over the past five years, the demand for bilingual workers in the United States has more than doubled. Studying abroad in Barcelona will provide students with the best foreign language experience possible. Not only will they be interacting with professors based in Spain, but they will be speaking Spanish right outside of their classrooms! Students are surprised at how much faster they learn the new language here in Barcelona than they would at home.
Furthermore, students will learn valuable cross-cultural communication skills such as deciphering facial expressions and gestures in order to successfully understand and appreciate the locals and culture in Barcelona. They will be able to infuse these skills into a professional setting, which will allow them to interact with people from all different backgrounds in the workforce.
