Business Spanish Vocabulary

Spanish business meeting

Looking to get that multinational promotion or stand out in the job market? Being able to conduct business in another language – especially one of the most commonly spoken languages in the world – will certainly set you apart when applying for jobs, competing for promotions, or establishing new contacts with international clients. If you’re lucky, your work may even send you abroad to Latin America or Europe to secure agreements in person. After this course, your business partners will not only be impressed with your Spanish proficiency, they’ll also appreciate that you took the time to learn more about their culture and build a relationship with them in their native language.

According to one report, the demand for bilingual workers more than doubled in five years (between 2010–2015 in the US). Many Spanish-speaking countries are emerging as important players in the global economy, and the need for bilingual Spanish speakers is only increasing. Speaking Spanish gives you a special ability to aid your employer in expanding into new markets, as well as support customers or existing employees whose native language is Spanish. With Lingvist, you can track your progress in the Business Course Focus and more. Don’t forget to mention how many words you’ve mastered in the Lingvist app on your resume or CV!
