Careers Made easy

growth sector

An understanding of Spanish is essential not only to maintain and improve our cultural and economic ties with the 20 countries where Spanish is the official language, but also to learn about and appreciate the culture of approximately 50 million Hispanics living in the U.S.

Occupations that serve broad U.S. populations—from health care to education to business and marketing—need Spanish speakers with strong, broad liberal arts skills.

We help you get internships where you can use your language skills, working with Spanish speakers in schools, hospitals or other organizations, here in the States or overseas. Employers like to see these kinds of practical experiences on résumés.

My Favorite Course

“I helped teach English to day laborers at the Neighborhood House in Morristown, N.J. It was amazing. For a year I was able to practice my Spanish skills outside the class setting.”
